Is PG&E Corporation Able To Pay The Bills When They Mature?
So far, we’ve taken a look at performance and volume. Next, we’re going to look at bill pay ratios. As the company receives bills and it is time dig deep into the pockets and pay, would it be able to do so? I like to use two ratios to get an idea of that. The first of these ratios is usually called the “Quick Ratio” and the second is generally called the “Current Ratio.” Here’s what these important ratios represent and the information from PCG with respect to them:
The Quick Ratio
The quick ratio is named for the kinds of assets that are included when coming up with it. The assets included are called quick assets. Essentially, the quick ratio is a measure of liquidity that tells the investing community if a company has the ability to pay its obligations as they come due based on the quick assets that the company has currently on hand. These assets are any asset can be turned into liquid cash quickly, or within a period of 90 days. Quick assets usually encompass cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and marketable securities.As it relates to PCG, the quick ratio comes to 0.60. This means that based on an analysis of the company’s quick assets, it will have the ability to pay its current obligations 0.60 times.
Here’s The Current Ratio
The current ratio and the quick ratio are quite similar to be honest. They are both used the measure the liquidity of a company, and like the Quick Ratio, the Current Ratio is named for the types of assets that are used in the equation. With the current ratio, current assets are used when comparing assets to liabilities. Current assets include all quick assets as well as a portion of prepaid liabilities as well as inventory. As far as PG&E Corporation is considered, the current ratio totals up to be 0.70. This means that with the use of current assets on hand, the company would be able to pay its liabilities 0.70 times.
Big Money And PG&E Corporation
One thing I have come to understand so far in my brief time in existence has been that smart investors tend to follow the moves made by big money. In general, investors that are trying to keep their investments relatively safe will follow trades made by institutional investors as well as those on the inside. So, where is the big money when it comes to PCG? Here’s what’s going on:
Institutions own 86.80% of the company. Institutional interest has moved by 2.18% over the past three months. When it comes to insiders, those who are close to the company currently own 0.10% percent of PCG shares. Institutions have seen ownership changes of an accumulative 0.00% over the last three months.
What’s Going On With Share Counts?
Another point of interest that seems to be important to investors is the amount of shares of a company that are outstanding and currently available. At the moment, there are 536.08M shares of PG&E Corporation outstanding. Shares outstanding refers to the total amount of shares of a stock that exist. As far as the float goes, or the amount of shares that are actually available on the retail market, PCG has a float of 517.53M.
Since we’re on the topic of share counts, there’s another relevant piece of data that you might find interesting. That would be the short percentage of the float. Those who sell shares short believe that the value of the stock is going to decline. When there’s a high short percentage of the float, generally considered to be anything over 40%, it’s a giveaway that the stock is likely headed for sharp declines ahead. Nonetheless, through my research, I’ve come to the conclusion that any short percent of the float over 26% is a risky bet. When it comes to PCG, the short percent of the float is 3.74%.
