Financial Analysis

MARTIN MIDSTREAM PARTNERS LP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, underperforming the average competitor within its industry. MARTIN MIDSTREAM PARTNERS LP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.50 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
