Financial Analysis


SILVER WHEATON CORP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. SILVER WHEATON CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 8.09 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. SLW managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 14.28% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
