Financial Analysis


Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased. JUNIPER NETWORKS INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.11 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 8.66% 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.
