Financial Analysis


SYNAPTICS INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has decreased 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. SYNAPTICS INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.01 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 4.99% 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.
