The gross margins are the profit made before any overhead or expenses. A rising gross margin will tell you that the company is either lowering the cost of making their product or the product has simply gone up in price. A falling gross margin means production costs and the product price are moving closer together.

Operating margins are the profit made after all the overhead and expenses. An increase in operating margins usually means operation is growing more efficient. A fall in operating cost means an increase in advertisement and marketing costs.
