More detailed

In recent years, the capitalization of technology companies has been at very high levels, which is often explained by new technologies, patents and the exclusive right to use certain technologies. Therefore, investors prefer to invest in intangible assets.

When analyzing the financial position of a company, it is important to consider how the company generates cash flows and revenue. Higher values ​​of the share of intangible assets may indicate that the main source of revenue and cash flows is technology/exclusive rights.
