describe questions a person may ask themselves in analyzing there financial situation?
Weegy: We check the financial health of a company in much the same fashion by analyzing the financial statements.

Short-term liquidity. 2. Long-term solvency. 3. Profitability. SHORT-TERM LIQUIDITY In the emergency room the first question is: Can this patient survive? Similarly, the first issue in analyzing financial statements is: Can this company survive? Business survival means being able to pay the bills, meet the payroll, and come up with the rent.

However, when current liabilities exceed current assets the enterprise may well be in immanent danger of bankruptcy. The financial ratio used to measure this risk is current assets divided by current liabilities, and is known as the current ratio. It is expressed as “2.5 to 1” or “2.5_1” or just “2.5.” Keeping the current ratio from dropping below 1 is the bare minimum to indicate survival, but it lacks any margin of safety. A company must maintain a reasonable margin of safety, or cushion, because the current ratio, like all financial ratios, is only a rough approximation. For this reason, in most ... (More)
