Financial Analysis


EQT CORP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has decreased 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. EQT CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.04 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 20.17% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
