Does Renren (NYSE:RENN) has enough cash to last in March?
The company currently holds 32.03 M in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 0.26, which may suggest the firm is not taking enough advantage from borrowing. Renren Inc has a current ratio of 0.63, indicating that it has a negative working capital and may not be able to pay financial obligations when due.
Renren financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Renren, including all of Renren'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 Renren assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Renren 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.

From a slightly different point of view, the entity appears to be overvalued. Our overall 30 days 'Buy-vs-Sell' recommendation on the company is Sell.
