Basically, they measure the company’s abilities to cover its debts when they mature using quick assets or current assets. Because in tech, companies rely heavily on the continuation of support from investors as they work to bring new technologies to market, the quick and current ratios can be damning.

What You Need To Know About 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.

As far as the float goes, or the amount of shares that are actually available on the retail market, ANGI has a float of 83.94M.

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 ANGI, the short percent of the float is 11.46%.
