Obviously I oversimplified. I'm assuming this is an academic question. If it is an investing question, he is screwed anyway.
If you can seperate fixed and variable costs, you can figure out the close range operating leverage. ...

Operating leverage is not the same as financial leverage.
It depends on how detailed the income statement is. You just have to be able to see what is fixed and what is variable. ...

Just searched true car for a few vehicles that my friends and family have recently purchased and they are high as horse pussy.

Margin rates for shorting are determimed more by the security shorted than the borrower.
You aren't borrow in cash, you are borrowing the secuities, so the rate is determined by whatever large investors agree to sign a securities lending agreement. Then the broker adds a spread for his time and ...

It's just like hedge funds that kicked arse in 2010. The states that had idiotic law makers that are approving such things are the same states that got smashed the hardest in the recession.
