Financial Analysis

MCEWEN MINING INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 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. MCEWEN MINING INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.16 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 3.03% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
