A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest Coverage (current year). The higher, the better.

Note: If both Interest Expense and Interest Income are empty, while Net Interest Income is negative, then use Net Interest Income as Interest Expense.

Sanderson Farms's Interest Expense for the months ended in Apr. 2022 was $-1 Mil. Its Operating Income for the months ended in Apr. 2022 was $429 Mil. And its Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation for the quarter that ended in Apr. 2022 was $12 Mil.

Sanderson Farms's Interest Coverage for the quarter that ended in Apr. 2022 is

Interest Coverage=-1*Operating Income (Q: Apr. 2022 )/Interest Expense (Q: Apr. 2022 )
=-1*428.943/-0.567
=756.51

The higher the ratio, the stronger the company's financial strength is.
