Financial Analysis

VANGUARD NATURAL RESOURCES's gross profit margin for the second 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. VANGUARD NATURAL RESOURCES has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.59 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 186.71% 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.

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. Along with this, the price-to-book ratio is also meaningless due to a negative book value for the company, making any comparisons useless. The price-to-sales ratio is well below both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a discount.
