Financial Analysis

ENERGY TRANSFER EQUITY LP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, underperforming the average competitor within its industry. ENERGY TRANSFER EQUITY LP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.50 which 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 87.96% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
