Financial Analysis

Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS LP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.86 which 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.
