Financial Analysis


XPO LOGISTICS INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased 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. XPO LOGISTICS INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.00 which shows that technically this company has the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

Together, the key liquidity measurements indicate that it is relatively unlikely that the company will face financial difficulties in the near future.

After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, XPO LOGISTICS INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
