The Zacks Analyst Blog Highlights: Equinor, BP, SunPower, Antero and EQT
Over the past three months, shares of SunPower (NASDAQ: SPWR) rose by 91.54%. Before having a look at the importance of debt, let us look at how much debt SunPower has.SunPower's Debt Based on SunPower's balance sheet as of October 30, 2020, long-term debt is at $490.52 million and current debt is at $397.88 million, amounting to $888.40 million in total debt. Adjusted for $324.74 million in cash-equivalents, the company's net debt is at $563.66 million.Let's define some of the terms we used in the paragraph above. Current debt is the portion of a company's debt which is due within 1 year, while long-term debt is the portion due in more than 1 year. Cash equivalents include cash and any liquid securities with maturity periods of 90 days or less. Total debt equals current debt plus long-term debt minus cash equivalents.Shareholders look at the debt-ratio to understand how much financial leverage a company has. SunPower has $1.45 billion in total assets, therefore making the debt-ratio 0.61. As a rule of thumb, a debt-ratio more than one indicates that a considerable portion of debt is funded by assets. A higher debt-ratio can also imply that the company might be putting itself at risk for default, if interest rates were to increase. However, debt-ratios vary widely across different industries. A debt ratio of 25% might be higher for one industry and normal for another.Why Debt Is Important Besides equity, debt is an important factor in the capital structure of a company, and contributes to its growth. Due to its lower financing cost compared to equity, it becomes an attractive option for executives trying to raise capital.However, interest-payment obligations can have an adverse impact on the cash-flow of the company. Equity owners can keep excess profit, generated from the debt capital, when companies use the debt capital for its business operations.Looking for stocks with low debt-to-equity ratios?
