POLARIS INDUSTRIES 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 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. POLARIS INDUSTRIES INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.38 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 27.59% 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.
