Chances of Ocean (AMEX:OPTT) to drop in August

The company currently holds 938 K in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 0.01, which may suggest Ocean Power is not taking enough advantage from borrowing. Ocean Power Tech has a current ratio of 15.17, suggesting that it is liquid enough and is able to pay its financial obligations when due. Debt can assist Ocean Power until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Ocean Power's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Ocean Power Tech sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Ocean to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Ocean Power's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
Ocean Power financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Ocean Power, including all of Ocean Power'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 Ocean Power assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Ocean Power 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.
