Financial Analysis


HMS HOLDINGS CORP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has 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. HMS HOLDINGS CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 4.74 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. HMSY managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained unchanged from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
