Current assets < current liabilities important?
Having current liabilities larger than current assets will require a company to raise capital to pay their bills. A couple of companies I am researching in-depth (UNP and UNH, specifically) have current liabilities larger than their current assets for the last 3 years. But they both have growing earnings and, for the most part, growing cash flows.
In personal finance, it is very important that my current liabilities not exceed my current assets. But as a newbie hoping to learn from the wisdom of the CAPS community, I ask you how important you believe this relationship is, especially as related to companies that are steadily growing earnings and cash flow?
