INTUITIVE SURGICAL INC's gross profit margin for the second 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. INTUITIVE SURGICAL INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 3.99 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. ISRG managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 34.37% 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.
