Company Rankings (The ranking of each company in the industry in terms of their financial strengths and weaknesses) ~ One page total Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (Ticker: LH) – Lindsey
           a)LH Strengths:
LapCorp reported a gross profit of $56,243 billion, an increase of 33.34 percent from the previous year. The Company also reported a total revenue of $16,120.9 billion in 2021, an increase of 13.39 percent from the previous year. These figures can show an increase in demand for the Company’s products and services. Additionally, total operating cash flow for 2021 was $3,109.6 billion, an increase of 31.33 percent from 2020. Investments made by the company can also be attributed to these gains. 
Strengths from the balance sheet: Cash and cash equivalents for 2021 was reported at 14,727 billion, an increase of 10.31 percent from the previous year. Net Property, Plant and Equipment (PP&E) in 2021 was $28,154 billion, an increase of 3.05 percent from the previous year. An increase in PPE makes sense when presented with the Company’s increase in revenue, more PP&E is needed for expansion in services and clients. Additionally, total liabilities decrease by over 10 percent in 2021 compared to 2020 (Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, 2022).
b)LH Weaknesses:

Inventory in 2021 decreased by 5.43 percent. Given the increase in total revenue it is interesting to see that the Company is essentially “doing more” with less. This may be attributed to a change in the business model to a more service-based menu for clients but could also indicate unsustainable practices.
Accumulated depreciation increased by 8.71 percent in 2021 compared to the previous year. This creates a larger liability for the Company.
