week 12 reading avtivity:

In week thirteen you will begin work on a project that will be due during week fourteen. Your task is to choose a publicly traded corporation for your project that will be due in week fourteen. By publicly traded it means that it must be listed on an exchange such as the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ. This is important because you will need the financial statements and notes for your company. This would be difficult to find for a private company which is not obligated to provide this information. If you are unsure if your company is publicly traded check on their website. In the “investor relations” section they will detail this information.

Then find their latest annual report as you will be using that in week thirteen to begin working on the project. I will be checking your choices in the discussion board this week.  That way I can make sure you are all set to begin working on the project next week.

Question 1:

As you will see under the ungraded activity you need to select a publicly traded company that you will analyze in the next few weeks. For your discussion board post please locate the latest annual report for a publicly traded corporation of your choice. Attach a link or copy of the annual report to your post. In your post describe what is found in an annual report. For example, what are the different sections that can be found in them from what you see? Lastly, be sure to locate the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. List in your post which pages you found these on.

(400-450 words in word document with references 6 years or less old)(Please follow APA format) Please 3 references from journals or books will be appreciated. Write everything in own words.

Question 2: project

In week thirteen you were introduced to this assignment.  In week twelve you selected a publicly traded company and found their annual report. Now that you have their financial information I would like you to perform a ratio analysis on the financial statements. Focus on the financial statement analysis chapter (PDF) you are reading this week. You will want to compute ratios for your company for the last two years. Do not compute each ratio you learned about for your company. There may be some that are not relevant. Rather focus on those eight ratios that you feel are the most important and relevant to analyze how your company is doing. Make sure to justify the ratios that you choose for your analysis. Compare how your company has done to the industry averages. Do you notice any trends that are positive or negative? Does anything look good or bad that is notable? Do you have any suggestions on things they could be doing to improve these ratios? Please analyze what you found for each of the eight ratios. Then organize your findings into a 15 minute presentation. Be sure to include some background on your company in your presentation.
