Financial Analysis


UNIT CORP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. UNIT CORP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.54 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.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 26.47% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.

Valuation


SELL. The current P/E ratio is negative, which has no meaningful value in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, it simply displays that the company has negative earnings. For additional comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.15 indicates a significant discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.94 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 3.89. The price-to-sales ratio is above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, UNIT CORP proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
