Financial Analysis


SUPERVALU INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2015 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. SUPERVALU INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.32 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 greatly increased by 31.73% 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.
