Financial Analysis

CARRIZO OIL & GAS INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. CARRIZO OIL & GAS INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.32 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.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 94.71% 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.
