Cash flow liquidity ratios, Accounting Basics

Liquidity refers to a company's cash position, availability of resources to meet short-term cash requirements, and overall ability to obtain cash in the normal course of business. A company is said to be liquid if it has sufficient cash or is capable of converting its other assets to cash in a relatively short period of time so that presently maturing debts can be paid.

2. What information does your calculation give an investor or creditor? What are the ratio trends?
