LTM EBIT amounts are WAY off for these two companies.

Thanks

You are right; I just checked those two companies and the Ratios variable for TTM EBITDA looks off by a significant amount for those two companies.

In general, you should try to use the financial statement variables, when available, as they tend to be more accurate than the Ratios variables. For example, the formula:

EBIT(I) + EBIT(I-1) + EBIT(I-2) + EBIT(I-3)

seems to provide the correct value for those two companies even though the ratio variable does not.
