Target's Interest Coverage for the quarter that ended in Oct. 2023 is

Interest Coverage=-1*Operating Income (Q: Oct. 2023 )/Interest Expense (Q: Oct. 2023 )
=-1*1317/-107
=12.31

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

2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better.

Target's Debt to Revenue Ratio for the quarter that ended in Oct. 2023 is

Debt to Revenue Ratio=Total Debt (Q: Oct. 2023 ) / Revenue
=(Short-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation) / Revenue
=(1112 + 17914) / 101592
=0.19
