Financial Analysis

CHEVRON CORP's gross profit margin for the second 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 0.91 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only decreasing by 4.85% 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.

HOLD. The current P/E ratio is negative, which has no meaningful value in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, it simply displays that the company has negative earnings. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.31 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.73 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 15.68. The price-to-sales ratio is similar to the S&P 500 average, but it is significantly below the industry average, indicating a discount. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, CHEVRON CORP proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
