Financial Analysis

BOEING CO's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown its sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, and although its growth in net income has outpaced the industry average, its revenue growth has not. BOEING CO has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.37 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 56.54% 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.
