received cash during a period of time. They do this at a much better rate than the industry but not fail to ignore the fact that it still dropped after 2016. A company’s fixed assets turnover tells us how well a business uses fixed assets to consistently generate sales. Intel’s fixed asset turnover is drastically different from the industry standard. Lucky for intel, the industry rate is dropping but it still doesn’t place the company where they need to be. I think they may have put too much money into fixed assets and not enough resources into turning them over. The industry avg inventory turnover 5.77 times per year where Intel’s turnover inventory sits at 3.39 times per year. Capital Structure and Long-Term Solvency Cash interest coverage measures how many times interest payments can be covered by cash flow from operations before interest and taxes. Intel’s went from 34.262 to 42.561 so this tells us that they won’t be bothered by the expenses of debt and will have more money to put other places as needed. Debt to assets ratio increased from .416 to .440 which isn’t too bad because less than half of their assets are in debt.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
