1. A measure of the number of times a company's inventory is replaced during a given time period. Turnover ratio is calculated as cost of goods sold divided by average inventory during the time period. A high turnover ratio is a sign that the company is producing and selling its goods or services very quickly.
2. In the case of mutual funds, the percentage of a fund's assets that have changed over the course of a given time period, usually a year.
