This
is your opportunity to play detective and do some financial statement
analysis.
Please select any publicly traded company. The CSU Online Library
has
several databases to choose from that are good starting points for your
research:
Mergent
Online,
Business
Insights: Global,
Business
Source Ultimate, and
ABI/INFORM
Collection.
In
addition to using at least one database article or report from the CSU
Online
Library, you may also use any reliable website, such as the company’s
web page.
For
the company you select, find the annual report and the financial ratio
information for the following ratios:
debt-to-equity,
current
ratio,
return
on equity,
quick
ratio,
working
capital ratio,
price
earnings ratio, and
earnings
per share.
Once
you have reviewed the information, write an essay that begins with a
brief
introduction to your chosen company. Next, explain how the company is
doing with
respect to the ratios. In one to three sentences, briefly summarize
what each of
the ratios are telling you about the company. Conclude with how
you predict it
will do in the future.
Your
essay should be at least one page in length. Use APA format to cite and
reference all quoted and paraphrased material, including your textbook. Use a
minimum of two sources, one of which may be the textbook. Include a title page,
introduction, body, conclusion, and references page. An abstract is not
required.
