I reviewed Pfizer's financial information from Valueline's report dated April 28, 2000. Pfizer's cash to debt ratio is less than 1.5 As of 12/31/99, total debt is shown as $5526 mill and cash assets are 4442 $mill. Also, I calculated a Flow Ratio of 1.61, using 12/31/99 info.: (11191 - 4442 = 6749 divided by 4184 (current liab.:9185 - debt due: 5001)

I'm new to Rule Maker analysis so if I have calculated the numbers correctly, would these two markers be viewed as less significant than the other RM criteria and why so? Would these numbers knock Pfizer from RM status?

Thanks so much for your assistance. I hope one of the "TMF" will help me understand this question
