  Leverage (finance) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A profitable business with good credit and cash flow may be able to borrow at rates well below the rate at which they can earn money in their core business or other projects by utilizing the borrowed capital.
Because the percentage increase in a leveraged portfolio is higher by the same ratio as the decrease is higher.
In a 200% leveraged index it's a 20% increase, to 120, and a 18.17% (9.09*2) decrease from 120 to 98.2 (120 * (1 - (110-100) / 110) * 2).

 The Third Form of Leverage
Business schools have taught that there are two forms of leverage available to business: operating and financial.
Leverage, in its simplest sense, is the substitution of a fixed quantity for a variable quantity.
For example, operating leverage is the extent to which a company's costs of operating are fixed (rent, equipment cost) as opposed to variable (material, direct labor).

 Agricultural Finance Review
Business risk (BR), the variability in net income or equity growth caused by changes in the biophysical environment and in markets, is embodied in the variance of ROA over time.
The actual business ROA realized during a year for all players is a discrete probability distribution found in the rolling of a pair of dice, as revealed in Table 3.
The business performance during the year for each player will depend on the amount of equity invested in the business, the leverage position, the actual ROA realized for the year, and the cost of debt.

 CCH Business Owner's Toolkit | Operating Leverage
The extent to which a business uses fixed costs (compared to variable costs) in its operations is referred to as "operating leverage." The greater the use of operating leverage (fixed costs, often associated with fixed assets), the larger the increase in profits as sales rise and the larger the increase in loss as sales fall.
With a lower level of operating leverage, the business shows less growth in profits as sales rise, but faces less risk of loss as sales decline.
A decision to go with heavier investment in fixed assets and to increase operating leverage will, to a large extent, be determined by your perception of the economy and of the ability of your business to meet higher sales levels necessary to support the fixed costs.
