Financial Analysis

NIKE 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. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. NIKE INC has strong liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.88 which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 3.43% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
