Financial Analysis

REPUBLIC SERVICES INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown its sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, and although its growth in net income has outpaced the industry average, its revenue growth has not. REPUBLIC SERVICES 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 1.19% 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.
