Financial Analysis

MONRO MUFFLER BRAKE INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. MONRO MUFFLER BRAKE INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.10 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 increased by 9.53% 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.
