DISNEY (WALT) CO's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2015 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown its sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, and although its growth in net income has outpaced the industry average, its revenue growth has not. DISNEY (WALT) CO has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.84 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
