This project is an exercise in the fundamental analysis of a firm using ratio analysis. You are expected to complete calculations, answer questions addressing the outcomes of your calculations, and give a written analysis of your assessment of the assigned company’s performance across several areas where information is based on data found in the firm’s financial statements. Your written report will be submitted as the Project Report for this ratio analysis project.
Each student will have three companies: your main assigned company (i.e., the main co.), the secondary company (i.e., the peer co.), and a third internationally headquartered peer company (i.e., the intl co.). The primary focus of your report is your main company. This may differ from student to student. There will be penalties for analyses that do not match your assignment.
