Financial Analysis

CHEVRON CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly 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. CHEVRON CORP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.73 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 2.47% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
