Financial Analysis

CHURCH & DWIGHT INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. CHURCH & DWIGHT INC has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.53 which 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 2.04% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
