Financial Analysis


KOHL'S CORP's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, however the growth has outpaced the average competitor within the industry. KOHL'S CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.36 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.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 5.71% 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.
