Final Project Part II
Part II Overview For this part of the final project, you will be given a scenario in which you are asked to illustrate your financial computation and analysis skills. This part of the assessment addresses the following course outcomes: Compute financial ratios, time value, variables, and returns using industry standard tools for optimizing financial success Analyze corporate financial data for multiple companies in evaluating past and future financial performances Part II Prompt For this section of your employment exam, you will select two companies. The first company needs to come from your TDAU thinkorswim portfolio. The second needs to be a competitor of the first company from the same industry. You will be responsible for collecting, synthesizing, and making decisions regarding both companies. After evaluating these companies’ financial data, you will then decide which company’s stock is the better investment. This section of your employment examination must be submitted in two parts. Part A will contain the workbooks that house all of your quantitative data and formulas, along with any of the information that is relevant for your chosen companies. Part B will contain your answers to the questions asked below, composed in a cohesive manner. If you are referring to data that is found within the workbooks in Part A, be sure to include a citation—for example, “rate of return is 3.570 USD (E64, WB2),” where E64 is the cell that the calculation took place in and WB2 is designating “workbook 2.” This ensures that your instructor can quickly and accurately check data entry, formula use, and financial calculations. Your submission must address the following critical elements: I. Preparing the Workbooks A. Download the annual income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements for the last three completed fiscal years for your chosen companies.

What is the three-year return on the stock price of the second company (Company B)? How is this stock performing? Ensure that you use the appropriate formula in your spreadsheets to calculate the three-year return on your chosen company’s stock price. C. How do these two stocks compare in terms of three-year returns? What does this indicate about these two companies? III. Financial Calculations

Consider the appropriate date range you should use. V. Performance Over Time A. Analyze the performance of the Company A over time. What financial strengths and weaknesses does this company have? Consider addressing the free cash flows and ratios you calculated earlier. B. Analyze the performance of your Company B over time. What financial strengths and weaknesses does this company have?
