By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Specialty Stores industry with the lowest current ratios. Current ratio is useful to get an idea of how quickly a company can repay its short-term liabilities with its short-term assets. The higher the current ratio, the more capable the company is of paying its obligations.

Barnes & Noble ranks lowest with a a current ratio of 1.1. Following is Office Depot with a a current ratio of 1.5. Build-A-Bear Workshop ranks third lowest with a a current ratio of 1.6.

Staples follows with a a current ratio of 1.6, and Dick's Sporting Goods rounds out the bottom five with a a current ratio of 1.6.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Office Depot on April 20th, 2016 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $6.44.
