Financial Analysis


CALERES INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased. CALERES INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.41 which clearly 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 remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 4.26% 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.
