When you do a symbol lookup for a Quote, and go to the Snapshot page, can anyone tell me what "Financial Strength" is - in the lower left corner? It has Quick Ratio, and Current Ratio, both with (MRQ). What are these ratios? I don't even know what (MRQ) is. I have been through the links to "Evaluating a business" and "Gathering financial data" but nowhere do I find a reference to Financial Strength as a ratio. Can anyone help?Hi John,The Motley Fool Glossaryhttp://www.fool.com/school/Glossary/glossary.htmQuick RatioCurrent assets minus inventories divided by current liabilities. By taking inventories out of the equation, you can check and see if a company has sufficient liquid assets to meet short-term operating needs.Current RatioThe current ratio provides a speedy indication of a company's ability to meet short-term debt obligations. The higher the ratio, the more liquid the company is, and the better able it is to take care of any short-term debt. To determine the ratio, take current assets and divide by current liabilities.How to Read a Balance Sheet - Current & Quick Ratiohttp://www.fool.com/School/Valuation/CurrentAndQuickRatio.htmMRQ = Most Recent Quarter.Keith O'MalleyTMF KGOMalleyChoosing Stocks With The Motley Fool Online Seminarhttp://www.foolmart.com/shopping/Product_View.asp?PRODUCT_ID=MF2512_02&ref=CSBO02111
