Financial Statements for costco wholesale corp (COST*)

Although debt as a percent of total capital decreased at Costco Wholesale Corporation over the last fiscal year to 29.69%, it is still in-line with the Food and Staples Retailing industry's norm. Additionally, even though there are not enough liquid assets to satisfy current obligations, Operating Profits are more than adequate to service the debt. Last, inventories seem to be well managed as the Inventory Processing Period is typical for the industry, at 30.22 days.
