Chances of Continental (NYSE:CAL) to pull down in October
Continental has 1.4 B in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 4.9, demonstrating that Continental may be unable to create cash to meet all of its financial commitments. The entity has a current ratio of 0.92, suggesting that it has not enough short term capital to pay financial commitments when the payables are due.
Continental financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Continental, including all of Continental's outstanding debt obligations, and compares it with the equity. In simple terms, the high financial leverage means the cost of production, together with running the business day-to-day, is high, whereas, lower financial leverage implies lower fixed cost investment in the business and generally considered by investors to be a good sign. So if creditors own a majority of Continental assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Continental debt and outstanding corporate bonds gives a good idea of how risky the capital structure of a business is and if it is worth investing in it.

How important is Continental's Liquidity

Continental financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Caleres ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Continental financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between Continental's total debt and its cash.
