Financial Analysis

DRYSHIPS INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income fell significantly; although net income growth outperformed the average competitor in its industry, revenue growth did not. DRYSHIPS INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.11 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 99.76% 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.
