Financial Analysis


AIR PRODUCTS & CHEMICALS INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in net income underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the revenue growth did not. AIR PRODUCTS & CHEMICALS INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.44 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 5.67% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.
