Additional information: Credit sales were 65% of net sales in 2007 and 60% in 2008. At the beginning of 2008, 400 shares of common stock were issued, the first sale of stock in several years. The Cohen Company is concerned. Although it increased the dividends paid per share by 5% in 2008 and its 2008 net income is higher than 2007 net income, the market price of its common stock dropped from $22 per share at the beginning of 2008 to $21 per share at year-end.

a. Current

b. Acid-test

c. Inventory turnover

d. Receivables turnover

h. Return on stockholders’ equity

i. Debt

3. Based on your results, discuss the possible reasons for the decrease in the market price per share in 2008.
