STILLWATER MINING CO's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2014 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. STILLWATER MINING CO is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 5.95 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. SWC managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 1.09% 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.
