Financial Analysis

CARRIZO OIL & GAS INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. CARRIZO OIL & GAS INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.23 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.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 135.50% 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.

SELL. This stock’s P/E ratio is negative, making its value useless in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, only displaying that the company has negative earnings per share. Along with this, the price-to-book ratio is also meaningless due to a negative book value for the company, making any comparisons useless. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium.
