Financial Analysis

SEMPRA ENERGY's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. SEMPRA ENERGY has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.26 which clearly 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 increased by 13.14% 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.
