Will Macys (NYSE:M) debt increase in October
The entity has accumulated 8.58 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 3.18, indicating that Macys Inc relies heavily on borrowing. The firm has a current ratio of 1.22, implying that it may not be capable to disburse its interest payments when they become due. The company has Profit Margin of (13.83) %, which may imply that it does not effectively control operational costs or executes on its competitive strategy. This is way below average. Similarly, it shows Operating Margin of 4.7 %, which implies that for every $100 of sales, it generated an operating income of 0.05.
Macys financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Macys, including all of Macys'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 Macys assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Macys 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.

Another Deeper Perspective

The small pull down in market price for the last few months may encourage stakeholders to take a closer look at the firm as it closed today at a share price of 6.7 on very low momentum in trading volume. The company management teams did not add much value to Macys Inc investors in August. However, diversifying your holdings with Macys or similar stocks can still protect your portfolio during high-volatility market scenarios. The stock standard deviation of daily returns for 30 days investing horizon is currently 4.9. This high volatility is attributed to the latest market swings and not so good earnings reports for some of the Macys Inc partners.
