Financial Analysis

CAMPBELL SOUP CO'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. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased, representing an increase to the bottom line. CAMPBELL SOUP CO has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.43 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year, indicating improving cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 4.94% 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.
