Financial Analysis


KOHL'S CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, underperforming the average competitor within its industry. KOHL'S CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.16 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 11.96% 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.
