Edison:

Current ratio – 12,800.00 / 3,600.00 = 3.56

Quick ratio – (6,000 + 3,000 + 2,000) =3.06

Stagg:

Current ratio – 13,300.00 / 3,600.00 =3.69

Quick ratio – (5,000.00 + 2,500.00 + 2,500.00)/ 3,600.00 = 2.78

Thornton:

Current ratio – 13,800.00 / 3,600.00 = 3.83

Quick ratio – (4,000.00 + 2,000.00 + 3,000.00) / 3,600 =2.5

The most liquid company is Edison because they have the most access if necessary.

2. Computation and evaluation of activity ratios. The following data relate to Alaska Products, Inc:

20X5
20X4
Net credit sales
\$832,000
\$760,000

Cost of goods sold
530,000
400,000

Cash, Dec. 31
125,000
110,000

Average Accounts receivable
205,000
156,000

Average Inventory
70,000
50,000

Accounts payable, Dec. 31
115,000
108,000

Instructions
a. Compute the accounts receivable and inventory turnover ratios for 20X5. Alaska rounds all calculations to two decimal places.

Accounts Receivable Ratio = Net Credit Sales / Average Accounts Receivable \$832,000 / 205,000 = 4.10 Inventory Turnover Ratio = Net Credit Sales / Average Accounts Receivable \$530,000 / 70,000 =7.60 (205,000 + 156,000) / 2 = 180,500

(70,000 + 50,000) / 2 =60,000
3. Profitability ratios, trading on the equity. Digital Relay has both preferred and common stock outstanding. The com­pany reported the following information for 20X7:

Net sales
\$1,750,000
Interest expense
120,000
Income tax expense
80,000
Preferred dividends
25,000
Net income
130,000
Average assets
1,200,000
Average common stockholders’ equity
500,000

a. Compute the profit margin on sales ratio, the return on equity and the return on assets, rounding calculations to two decimal places. b. Does the firm have positive or negative financial leverage? Briefly ex­plain. Profit Margin = 130,000/1,7500,00 =7.43%

Return on equity = 130,000/5,000=26%

Return on assets = 130,000/1,200,000=10.83%

(120,000 + 80,000 + 130,000) / (80,000 + 130,000) =1.57

It has a positive financial leverage of around 1.57 times.
The net profit ratio states Digital Relay made a 9% profit off its sales.

The company decreased its liabilities which is good but also decreased its assets and costs of goods sold. The operating expenses increased and kept the same amount of net sales. Their Stockholders’ Equity increased so they
were able to purchase additional equipment, property, and plant.

It seems as if the findings were the same as in the horizontal analysis. There is a difference, which is, seeing the sections changed based upon the previous. There is a 35% increase in the Stockholders’ Equity which is great for the company. 6. Ratio computation. The financial statements of the Lone
