Martin Ratio and MFO Premium

New to MFO ... so forgive the ignorance. I am enjoying reading the discussions on mutual funds in my portfolio or on my watch list. That said, I'm exploring the MFO premium and looked at the sample pages. I found the Martin ratio and then looked up the definition of what it is. Here's my question - is a higher or lower number better for the Martin ratio? The Definitions page doesn't really explain that simplistically.


  • Higher Martin Ratios are better. When I search in an asset class, I look for high Martin ratios and a lot of blue colored rating boxes for a particular mutual fund and that's where I usually buy. Not foolproof, but the best fund finder that I can find.
  • Thank you! Moderator can delete this post if they wish. I appreciate the answer. I'm thinking about purchasing MFO premium.
