Financial Analysis


CHEVRON CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income fell significantly; although net income growth outperformed the average competitor in its industry, revenue growth did not. 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 liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 3.52% 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.
