Step 1:Is the company maximizing the wealth of its shareholders?  If not, what can they do to achieve this result?

Step 3:Review your calculations and analysis of the following 6 ratios and financial measures: Current Ratio, Debt/Equity Ratio, Return on Investment, Earnings per Share, Profit Margin and Free Cash Flow  If you have any questions, post them in the discussion forum.

Step 4:Conclude your analysis with other observations on the firm and whether your analysis differs from other analyses that are available.  Indicate if there is any other measure you would want in order to make an investment recommendation. You may also share your thoughts with your classmates using the LP5 discussion forum.

Step 5:Make an Investment Recommendation.  Assume you have been asked by an investor, age 35, who wishes to invest in conservative stocks that will provide some income now but is mainly interested in growth over the next ten (10) years. Begin your final project essay with an investment recommendation to this investor and support it with solid financial analysis.  Your report should include your conclusions related to each of the five parts of this financial statement analysis project. You should conclude with a statement on whether or not Ford would meet this investor’s investment goals. Your essay should be in 2,000 to 2,500 word, written in APA style, and cite any your sources you used both in the body of the paper and in a reference list found at the end of the paper.
