Typically, short-term creditors will prefer a high current ratio because it reduces their overall risk. However, investors may prefer a lower current ratio since they are more concerned about growing the business using assets of the company. Acceptable current ratios may vary from one sector to another, but generally accepted benchmark is to have current assets at least as twice as current liabilities (i.e. Current Ration of 2 to 1).
Shares Owned by Institutions show percentage of the outstanding shares of stock issued by a company that are currently owned by other institutions such as asset management firms, hedge funds, or investment banks. Many investors like investing in companies with large percentage of the firm owned by institutions because they believe that larger firms such as banks, pension funds, and mutual funds, will invest when they think that good things are going to happen.
