Financial Analysis

SILVER WHEATON CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has decreased 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. SILVER WHEATON CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.58 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 decreased by 6.12% 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.
