Publicly traded company


This is a 2 part project, part 1 is a paper and part 2 is a powerpoint presentation.

Case Study Instructions: Overall

In this topic, your group will select a publicly traded company and submit the name of the company to the instructor for approval by the end of the topic. Note: You will need to have this step finalized before you can complete the assignment detailed below, so it is in your best interest to select and obtain approval as soon as possible.

Select a company that is public and enjoys extensive analyst coverage (e.g., Apple, GE, Southwest Airlines, Walgreens, Exxon Mobil) to insure access to sufficient financially oriented material regarding your chosen company. The more information available, the easier it will be to perform the financial analysis.

As you move through the nine steps in conducting your analysis, you will research the market at each step for relevant data on your chosen company, including analyst reports and market information. Disclose all assumptions you are making in the case study (e.g., revenue growth projections, expense controls) and provide supporting reasons and evidence behind those assumptions. As your case study analysis develops over the span of the course, you will synthesize the research data and outcomes of the nine-step assessment process to assess the long-term financial health of the chosen company.
