Current Ratio

The Current Ratio is a measure of how many times a company can pay its Current Liabilities with its Current Assets. It is calculated as Total Current Assets divided by Total Current Liabilities. This item is not available for Banks, Insurance companies and other companies that do not distinguish between current and long term assets and liabilities and is calculated on a TTM basis.

Stockopedia explains Current Ratio

This measure is used to determine the ability of a company to meet its current liabilities.

If the ratio falls below 1, it means that the company has fewer current assets than current liabilities and that it may struggle to meet its current liabilities in the coming months.

Ideally, investors look for a safety buffer here and like to see a ratio of at least 1.5 times but ideally higher.

This is measured on a TTM basis.
