Financial Strength and Ratio Analysis

Current Ratios and Quick Ratios

Current ratios help evaluate a company’s ability to pay short-term obligations.

Current ratio = current assets / current liabilities

The current ratio includes all current assets, but since inventory is not always quickly liquidated, many analysts remove it from the equation and use the Quick ratio.

Quick ratio = (current assets – inventory) / current liabilities

The quick ratio emphasizes assets that are easily converted to cash.  The higher the ratio, the better off the company.  Analysts like to see ratios greater than 2:1 for current ratios and 1:1 for quick ratios.
