significance for management and compare them to industry averages.

Current Ratio
Quick Ratio
Inventory Turnover Ratio
Debt Ratio
Net Profit Margin Ratio
Price-to-Earnings Ratio (P/E) Ratio

I need help trying to analyze Kroger's working capital management. Explaining why the companyÂ's operating and cash cycles are currently optimized. Based on Kroger's last two financial statements, I need information on the long-term debt held by the corporation, maturity dates and yield to maturity.

I must list the types of stock issued by the company, the stocks' current selling price, and the 52-week average selling price, compute the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for both years and discuss my findings.

My information must include a brief analysis that summarizes the data gathered and evaluates how Kroger compares to industry averages.
Should I buy this company's stock and why?

All I have for reference is :
