CLASS / COURSE: Financial Analysis
Final Project Overview For the final project, you will evaluate the financial health of a company.
Write a 750- to 1,000-word paper in APA format and create a PowerPoint® presentation that summarizes your evaluation.
Prior to writing the paper, you will need to research your chosen company and conduct an industry comparison to determine how your company’s financial performance compares with others in its industry.
To begin your research, you can refer to the work you completed in the Week One Check Point and the Ch. 1 PowerPoint®. As you conduct your research, consider the following factors as a guideline for determining the financial health of your company: ·
Financial data from the company’s annual report or 10-K report ·
Current and future financial performance of the company ·
Success of the company’s operations ·
Policies and strategies of management ·
Performance of the economy ·
How the company is doing in comparison with its competitors in the same industry
You can also refer to the information and examples in Ch. 6 to complete your evaluation: pp. 194-196 outline various sources you can use in addition to financial statements, pp. 195-196 focus specifically on library resources for help with comparative research, and Figure 6.2 on p. 212 lists the steps of a financial statement analysis.
The following information must be included in your paper: ·
A summary of your company’s current financial performance ·
The importance of industry comparisons and trend analysis ·
An assessment of your company’s financial performance compared with others in its industry
Use APA formatting guidelines, and submit your paper as a Microsoft® Word attachment. Be sure to cite your sources and include Web site URLs where appropriate. In addition to your paper, create a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation consisting of 3 to 5 slides that highlights the financial data of your company and illustrates the comparisons you wrote about in your paper.
