Interpretations of the regressed output

Current ratio: Current ratio is defined as the total liquidity of the firm. The ideal current ratio is 2 :1 which means that ideally the current assets should be more , should be twice than that of current liabilities as the ratio states that current ratio = current assets /current liabilities higher the liquidity of the firm lower is the risk ,lower is the profit.

Interpretations of the regressed output : R square is roughly 22.2% which shows that the regressed model is not relevant because that means that 22.2% of the variation in ROCE IS explained by current ratio Standard error basically shows that how much is the data dispersed which is around 1.63.

The x variable is in positive which clearly states that there is a direct relationship between current ratio and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a increase in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=1.75 + 2.87X X here stand for current ratio The p value is around 0.34 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. Correlation is coming out to be 0.47 which shows the direct relationship between the ROCE and the current ratio and further confirms the positive slope.

Raw material inventory holding period : Raw material inventory holding period is the time taken to convert the raw materials into work in progress; it is not advisable for the firm to show a higher raw material inventory holding period as it increases the time for the complete manufacture Our analysis shows :

Interpretations of the regressed output of raw material inventory holding period


As per the theory we know that greater is the raw material holding period , lesser is the profit or the ROCE The regressed output also derives the same relationship between the two variables: R square is approximately 70 percent which clearly states that the regressed model is a very good model because it clearly states that 70 percent of the changes in ROCE can be explained by the raw material inventory holding period. Standard error shows that how much is the data scattered which is around 1.025 The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between raw material inventory holding period and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=8.42 0.03 X X here stand for raw material inventory holding period The p value is around 0.039 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.83 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and the raw material inventory holding period FINISHED GOODS HOLDING PERIOD Finished goods holding period is the period for which the finished goods are kept and not sold .the firm always tries to minimise the finished goods holding period

INTERPRETATIONS OF THE REGRESSED OUTPUT: R square is 8% which clearly states that the regressed model is a not very good model because it clearly states that 92% of the changes in ROCE cannot be explained by the finished goods inventory holding period. Standard error shows that how much is the data scattered which is around 1.77 which is essential in plotting the graph because the variation is very less. The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between finished inventory holding period and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=7.520.07X X here stand for coefficient of finished goods inventory holding period The p value is around 0.58 which shows that the value of the slope is not very significant. The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope but here p-value is more than 0.5 which shows irrelevancy. Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.28 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and finished goods inventory holding period Average collection period : As per the theory we know that a firma always tries to minimise its average collection period because the lesser is the average collection period , more quickly is the cash generated in the business .

The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.64271 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and Net Working Capital This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and Net Working Capital,

the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the Net

Working Capital the ROCE decreases.

Current ratio:
Current ratio is defined as the total liquidity of the firm. The ideal current ratio is 2 :1 which means that ideally the current assets should be more , should be twice than that of current liabilities as the ratio states that current ratio = current assets /current liabilities higher the liquidity of the firm lower is the risk ,lower is the profit.

Interpretations of the regressed output :

R square is roughly 9 percent which shows that the regressed model is not relevant because that means that 9 percent of the variation in ROCE IS explained by current ratio Standard error basically shows that how much is the data dispersed which is around 6.225 The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between current ratio and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=44.21845--17.95660X X here stand for current ratio The p value is around 0.5 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. Correlation is coming out to be negative between the ROCE and the current ratio 0.03 which shows the inverse relationship

This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and current ratio the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the current ratio the ROCE decreases.

Interpretations of the regressed output of raw material inventory holding period


As per the theory we know that greater is the raw material holding period , lesser is the profit or the ROCE The regressed output also derives the same relationship between the two variables: R square is roughly 75 percent which clearly states that the regressed model is a very good model because it clearly states that 75 percent of the changes in ROCE can be explained by the raw material inventory holding period. Standard error shows that how much is the data scattered which is around 4.306 The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between raw material inventory holding period and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=55.1200.519X X here stand for raw material inventory holding period The p value is around 0.085 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.75 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and the raw material inventory holding period This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and raw material inventory holding period, the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the the raw material inventory holding period the ROCE decreases.

INTERPRETATIONS OF THE REGRESSED OUTPUT:

R square is 41 percent which clearly states that the regressed model is a good model because it clearly states that 41 percent of the changes in ROCE can be explained by the change in Net Working Capital Standard error shows that how much is the data scattered which is around 5 which means that around 5 percent of the data is scattered.

The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between Net Working Capital and ROCE because an increase in the value of the average collection period will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=63.2601.959X X here stand for coefficient of Net Working Capital The p value is around 0.004 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.64271 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and Net Working Capital This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and Net Working Capital, the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the Net

Working Capital the ROCE decreases.

Current ratio:
Current ratio is defined as the total liquidity of the firm. The ideal current ratio is 2 :1 which means that ideally the current assets should be more , should be twice than that of current liabilities as the ratio states that current ratio = current assets /current liabilities higher the liquidity of the firm lower is the risk ,lower is the profit.

Interpretations of the regressed output :

R square is roughly 9 percent which shows that the regressed model is not relevant because that means that 9 percent of the variation in ROCE IS explained by current ratio Standard error basically shows that how much is the data dispersed which is around 6.225 The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between current ratio and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=44.21845--17.95660X X here stand for current ratio The p value is around 0.5 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. Correlation is coming out to be negative between the ROCE and the current ratio 0.03 which shows the inverse relationship

This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and current ratio the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the current ratio the ROCE decreases.

Raw material inventory holding period :


Raw material inventory holding period is the time taken to convert the raw materials into work in progress; it is not advisable for the firm to show a higher raw material inventory holding period as it increases the time for the complete manufacture Our analysis shows :

Interpretations of the regressed output of raw material inventory holding period


As per the theory we know that greater is the raw material holding period , lesser is the profit or the ROCE The regressed output also derives the same relationship between the two variables: R square is roughly 75 percent which clearly states that the regressed model is a very good model because it clearly states that 75 percent of the changes in ROCE can be explained by the raw material inventory holding period. Standard error shows that how much is the data scattered which is around 4.306 The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between raw material inventory holding period and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=55.1200.519X X here stand for raw material inventory holding period The p value is around 0.085 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.75 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and the raw material inventory holding period This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and raw material inventory holding period, the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the the raw material inventory holding period the ROCE decreases. FINISHED GOODS HOLDING PERIOD Finished goods holding period is the period for which the finished goods are kept and not sold .the firm always tries to minimise the finished goods holding period

INTERPRETATIONS OF THE REGRESSED OUTPUT: R square is 85 percent which clearly states that the regressed model is a very good model because it clearly states that 85 percent of the changes in ROCE can be explained by the finished goods inventory holding period. Standard error shows that how much is the data scattered which is around 2.517 which is essential in plotting the graph because the variation is very less. The x variable is in negative which clearly states that there is an inverse relationship between finished inventory holding period and ROCE because an increase in the value of the current ratio will lead to a decline in the value of ROCE as the equation here is Y=72.462671.60424X X here stand for coefficient of finished goods inventory holding period The p value is around 0.008 which shows that the value of the slope is significant. The lesser the p value the more significant is the slope

Correlation is coming out to be negative 0.992 which shows the inverse relationship between the ROCE and finished goods inventory holding period This can also be studied by the scattered diagram above here we study the trend line between ROCE and finished goods inventory holding period, the trend line is moving downwards which clearly states that with the increase in the the finished goods inventory holding period the ROCE decreases. Average collection period : As per the theory we know that a firm always tries to minimise its average collection period because the lesser is the average collection period , more quickly is the cash generated in the business .
