Financial Analysis


PUBLIC SERVICE ENTRP GRP INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased. PUBLIC SERVICE ENTRP GRP INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.46 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 3.00% 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.
