DR PEPPER SNAPPLE GROUP INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2015 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. DR PEPPER SNAPPLE GROUP INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.47 which clearly 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.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained unchanged 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.
