Financial Analysis

BOEING CO's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased, representing an increase to the bottom line. BOEING CO has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.39 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 448.20% 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.
