i just read a book by a journalist who went through harvard's MBA program. one of his lessons past on was that inventory is a millstone for any business. so CCC could be a usefull tell for any stock. i wish another article could be written showing where to get the initial numbers.

AAII's fundamental stock screening and research database program, Stock Investor Pro, was the source of the underlying financial statement data for the article. The only other source that I am aware of that offers several years of financial statement data (without digging through 10-Ks) is SmartMoney.com. Wayne A.

In the retail business, management cannot allow accountants to make merchant decisions. Inventory on hand can be a good thing--to a point, of course. More inventory makes a store 'feel' well stocked and attractive to customers. Customer research proves that shoppers will go elsewhere if the size, color, style they want is not there. So, these metrics are interesting and can be telling BUT not without deep knowledge of the in-store environment (shopability) and shopper behavior.
