The volume of the stock chart also shows the amount of liquidity in an action. Liquidity refers simply to the ease with which one enters and exits a stock. If a stock is traded at low volumes, there are not many traders involved in the stock and it would be harder to find an operator to buy or sell from. In this case, we would say it is illiquid. If a stock is traded at high volumes, there are many traders involved in the stock and it would be easier to find an operator to buy or sell from. In this case, we would say it is liquid.
Erroneously, some traders believe that rising stocks mean that there are more buyers than sellers, or decreasing volumes in terms of volume means that there are more sellers than buyers. Mistaken! Regardless of whether it's a high volume day or a low volume day, there's still a buyer for every seller. You can not buy something unless someone is selling it to you and you can not sell anything unless someone is buying it from you!
The current ratio of 3.3 is used primarily to give an idea of a company's ability to repay its liabilities (debt and debts) with its assets (cash, negotiable securities, inventories, credits). As such, the current relationship can be used to make a rough estimate of a company's financial health. The quick ratio of 2.7 is a measure of a company's ability to meet its short-term financial liabilities with fast assets (cash and cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities and credits). The greater the relationship, the greater the financial security of a company in the short term. A common rule of thumb is that companies with a rapid ratio above 1.0 are sufficiently able to meet their short-term liabilities.
The long-term debt / equity shows a value of 0.39 with a total debt / equity of 0.39.
