Financial Analysis


COPART INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged 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. COPART INC has strong liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.73 which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 22.46% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
