The current ratio ttm for a company is not matching what is wrong.
Example symbol COST current ratio on Fidelity 1.07 in wealth-lab 1.76

For the data currently available for COST it's correct.

assets: 5/29/2008 $21,203.35
liabs: 5/29/2008 $12,010.72

cr = assets / liabs = 1.76

Hi Cone
This is the problem current ratio is current assets / current liabs (short term), not total assets/ total liabs.
Example symb COST current assets $9,324 mil / Current Liabs $8,581 mil = 1.08 confermed on Fid web site.
Please correct if you can, with all the cash problems in business this is important to know liquidity in short term.
Thank You
Steve

The Current Ratio and all wizard ratios in WLP are defined in "WLP Fundamental Doc.pdf" in your Wealth-Lab Pro 5 installation folder. WLP Current Ratio uses the "total" values. The "current" values are not available.

THANK YOU for the update.
Sugestion current ratio should fixed or be removed it is misleading there is a debt to asset ratio already

Thanks for bringing up the issue. We can proceed in 2 ways -

1. Create a Support Ticket, and let us inform Fidelity, or,
2. Call Fidelity Active Trader Support directly.

Can you create the ticket?
I would love to see CURRENT RATIO information avalibale in the future, looks like all set up just need to carry proper information over.

This is working as designed and per the documentation. Please create a Support Ticket or call Fidelity, else nothing will even start to happen. We can't keep track of issues in the forum.

I read your note as saying (we and use) Create a Support Ticket with Fidelity, I think of you as Fidelity. Sorry, I will call Fidelity and start the ticket.
Thanks

That's just it; we are not Fidelity and cannot change it - especially Fidelity data products. We, who run wealth-lab.com, are MS123 who supports and resells Wealth-Lab products under license to Fidelity. We can inform/advise Fidelity about issues on your behalf if you create a Support Ticket.
