Financial Analysis

BIG 5 SPORTING GOODS CORP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 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. BIG 5 SPORTING GOODS CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.08 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 1.07% 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.
