    Does anyone know a good site to see what a company’s 2014 Working Capital Turnover is? I tried to calculate it for Amazon. I am getting 36.44. I checked a few sites and see they are not using average working capital in the denominator; however, they are using 2014 Working Capital as the denominator. This results in ratio of 27.48. Any suggestions?

    Good question.  Just pull the BS from 2013 and 2014 and average the WC for each.

    I think Edgar has the FR statements available to the public.

    Hi Googs. Edgar is a great resource for the Financial Statements, but they do not have the actual ratios. To reinforce the ratios, I started taking the Statements and calculating the ratios. Then confirming I math with Matchwatch, Yahoo, ect. For Working Capital Turnover I have not found a site that is using Average WC in the denominator. All the sites I have found used Current Periods Working Capital in the Denominator.
