The DebtEquity (DE) ratio can be applied to personal financial statements as well, in which case it is also known as the Personal DebtEquity Ratio. Here, "equity" refers not to the value of stakeholders’ shares but rather to the difference between the total value of an individual’s assets and the total value of his or her debt or liabilities.
The current ratio is mainly used to give an idea of a company's ability to pay back its liabilities (debt and accounts payable) with its assets (cash, marketable securities, inventory, accounts receivable). As such, current ratio can be used to make a rough estimate of a company’s financial health. The current ratio can give a sense of the efficiency of a company's operating cycle or its ability to turn its product into cash.
