Accounts receivable is a big part of revenue for many companies, but it is also a potential source of problems. Receivables represent money earned but not yet collected, so when receivables become a larger part of the revenue reported by a company, it indicates lower quality revenues. This is because there is no guarantee that the money will be paid back in full. In the same way, decreasing receivables relative to revenue growth is seen as a sign of strong revenues. We compiled a list of takeover/leveraged buyout [LBO] targets from various sources including CNBC and iStockAnalyst, then we screened these stocks for those that have seen positive trends in their accounts receivable: increases in quarterly revenue year-over-year outpacing changes in quarterly accounts receivable. We also screened for companies that have seen a decrease in accounts receivable as a percent of current assets year-over-year.
