Dear All,

could you please help me in finding the variable for cash and cash equivalents in Compustat? I need it to calculate an adjusted enterprise value. Is it CHE—Cash and Short-Term Investments?

Thanks in advance!

hi,

I also think it is CHE; in general if in doubt, pull one or two annual reports and compare the numbers.

Hope this helps,

Joost

Hi Joost,

Thank you. I checked with annual reports and it turns out that “Cash and cash equivalents” as in the annual report corresponds to “Cash”, CH, in Compustat.

Best wishes!
