Financial Analysis

THOMSON-REUTERS CORP's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased, representing an increase to the bottom line. THOMSON-REUTERS CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.38 which clearly 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.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 12.98% 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.
