Financial Analysis

WENDY'S CO's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased, representing an increase to the bottom line. WENDY'S CO is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 4.26 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 remained unchanged 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.
