Campbell Soup CoFind Ratings Reports
CAMPBELL SOUP CO's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in net income underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the revenue growth did not. CAMPBELL SOUP CO has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.40 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.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 11.63% 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.
