Question description

Evaluation of Corporate Performance

For the Final Paper, you will apply the concepts learned in class to an analysis of a company using data from its annual report. Using the concepts from this course, you will analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the company. You will then write a report either recommending or not recommending purchase of the company stock.
 
Research Tip:  The Mergent database in the Ashford University Library contains company profiles and financial information for publicly traded companies and their competitors.  To access this database, enter the Ashford University Library by clicking the “Library” link on the left navigation bar in your online course. Once you are in the Library, select “Find Articles and More” in the top menu panel.  Next, select “Databases A-Z” and go to section M to access the Mergent database. For help with using Mergent, use “Mergent Online Quick Tips.”

The completed report should include:

  • An introduction to the company, including background information.
  • A complete and thorough financial statement review.
  • Pro Forma financial statements (balance sheet and income statement) for the next fiscal year, assuming a 10% growth rate in sales and cost of goods sold (COGS) for the next year.

    • Liquidity

    • Asset management
    • Profitability
    • Market value
