Financial Analysis


SELECT COMFORT CORP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased, representing a decrease to the bottom line. SELECT COMFORT CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.13 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 31.94% 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.
