How important is CGI's Liquidity

CGI financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance CGI Group ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. CGI 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 CGI's total debt and its cash.

The inconsistency in the assessment between current CGI valuation and our trade advice on CGI is due to the recent market swings and your selection of investing horizon.
