Select Comfort CorpFind Ratings Reports
SELECT COMFORT CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has increased 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. SELECT COMFORT CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.22 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 28.33% 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.
