Financial Analysis


KOHL'S CORP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. KOHL'S CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.17 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year, indicating improving cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 6.70% 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.
