I have a few companies that have been on my radar for the past few weeks, and I’ve been using the flow chart and checklists to see if I should buy these companies. I get past the other parts of the flow chart pretty easily, but I always get stuck at Receivable Days and Payable Days. Where can I go to check if their receivables and payables are above/under the industry average? How do I know if it can be improved? Where can I find a formula, or something to help me calculate the cash conversion cycle?
You can find the cash conversion cycle formula here in the video of this course:
You can do a rough comparison of other competitor companies to have a look at the CCC to have a gauge, most of the time it shouldn’t differ hugely, but when it does, do check out why.
Hope it helps.
Can you let me know the company name so that I can look through the number or business and point you to the right direction.
On the side note, you don;t need to calculate the inventory, receivables or payables days manually. You can download the excel file under the checklist ( https://investmentquadrant.com/checklists/ ). Those figure will auto compute when you key in the necessary number.
