Stock volume is the number of shares traded during a given time period. Volume represents the interest level in a stock. If a stock is trading on low volume, then there is not much interest in the stock. But, on the other hand, if a stock is trading on high volume, then there is a lot of interest in the stock. Volume simply tells us the emotional excitement (or lack thereof) in a stock.

The quick ratio of 3.1 is a measure of how well a company can meet its short-term financial liabilities with quick assets (cash and cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities, and accounts receivable). The higher the ratio, the more financially secure a company is in the short term. A common rule of thumb is that companies with a quick ratio of greater than 1.0 are sufficiently able to meet their short-term liabilities.
