Financial Analysis

ENBRIDGE ENERGY PRTNRS -LP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased 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. ENBRIDGE ENERGY PRTNRS -LP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.22 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 15.42% 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.
