The higher the current ratio, the more capable the company is of paying its obligations.

Simpson Manufacturing ranks highest with a a current ratio of 5.3. PGT is next with a a current ratio of 3.2. Universal Forest Products ranks third highest with a a current ratio of 3.1.

Insteel Industries follows with a a current ratio of 3.1, and China Ceramics rounds out the top five with a a current ratio of 3.0.
