Description Similar optimal or recommended values of liquidity ratios are commonly appearing in the Czech literature. The purpose of this paper is to calculate a recommended value of current ratio for large firms in the manufacturing sector based on the data in three consecutive years, from 2009 to 2011. The analysis of the best-performing firms showed that current ratio frequency distribution matches a gamma distribution function, where its peak determines the recommended value at 1.4 or as an interval (1.2, 1.6), which denotes the most common value of current ratio.
