It is frequently used as an indicator of a company's liquidity, its ability to meet short-term obligations.

Be Aware

Stay away from companies that roll over the debt e.g. Bear Stearns

When investing in financial institutions, Buffett shies from those who are bigger borrowers of short term than long term debt.

His favorite Wells Fargo has 57 cents short term debt for every dollar of long term.

Aggressive banks (like Bank of America) has \$2.09 short term for every dollar long term
