Financial Analysis

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. QUANTA SERVICES INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.34 which shows that technically this company has the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.
