1.5 Assignment: Problems for Chapters 9 and 10

 

Getting Started

The capital budgeting process is both an art and a science. The art is in the intuitive, innovative, and entrepreneurial sense of corporate leadership.

In this assignment, you will work through some of the calculations and interpretations for making capital budgeting decisions.

Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:

  • Determine the financial suitability of capital budgeting projects utilizing common mathematical analysis techniques.
  • Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of common capital budgeting techniques.
  • Determine the relevant cash flows for a proposed capital investment project.

1.7 Assignment: Financial Case Study Paper—Company Overview

 

Getting Started

The goal of Applied Managerial Finance is to not only introduce you to various financial concepts, theories, and methods of analysis but also to give you an opportunity to apply this learning in order to evaluate the financial strengths, weaknesses, and risks of a real-world company and to formulate recommendations for management. To that end, you will work on an analysis and case study research paper in which you will apply various managerial finance techniques to an actual corporation.

Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate a company’s financial strengths and weaknesses based on its public financial statements.
  • Analyze a company’s capital structure and potential financial risks.
  • Develop recommendations for management action based on a company’s financial strengths, weaknesses, and risks.

Background Information

You may select the company of your choice, but it is highly recommended you choose a large public corporation that is easy to research. Common choices include such companies as Apple, Ford, Walmart, ExxonMobil, or GE. Check with your instructor if you have any questions about your selection.

Your paper will detail your analysis and make a recommendation, firmly grounded and supported by your analysis, as to what changes management should make in order to address its financial weaknesses or further capitalize on its financial strengths.

With each workshop, you will complete an additional section of the paper, culminating in a comprehensive final product. For this workshop, your goal is to review the requirements for the project, select your company, and write a brief overview that will serve as the foundation for your analysis.

Instructions

  1. Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
  2. Familiarize yourself with the structure and requirements for the full, final project by studying the instructions and rubric for the 6.6 Assignment.
  3. Select a large public corporation as the subject of your research.
  4. Begin conducting research on your subject company, focusing initially on its management, its history, and its product lines.
    1. Sources of research information might consist of (but are not limited to) annual financial reports published by the company, news articles and analyst opinions, interviews with management, and reputable internet sources that provide comparable industry financial information.
    2. Recommended financial news and data sites include Yahoo Finance, Reuters, Morningstar, and MSN Money. Extensive data and analysis is also available through Off Campus Library Services.
      1. For instance, detailed company profiles can be found for most large companies in the Business Source Complete database.
      2. From the library homepage (OCLS), under “Article Databases,” select “Business.” On the next page, select “Business Source Complete.” You may be asked to login at this point, and you should then be in the Business Source Complete database.
      3. At the top-center of the screen, find the word “MORE.” Hover over the word, and you will get a drop-down menu where you can choose Company Profiles. Select and you will be taken to a screen where you can search for a company.
    3. A minimum of 12 unique research sources from reputable scholarly, news, or industry sources will be required for the final paper. Keep track of your resources so you can appropriately list them in the reference list of your paper. The sources should represent an appropriately well-balanced variety of perspectives.
  5. Write a brief overview of the company, its management, its history, and its product lines, keeping in mind that this overview will provide a foundation for the rest of your paper. 
  6. The full, completed paper will consist of a minimum of 12 pages of content (not including cover, reference, and appendix pages). It is therefore recommended that this section should be one to two pages in length. Be concise but thorough.
  7. Your paper should be professionally written and follow full APA format, with all appropriate citations, references, and formatting. It should include an appropriate cover page and a references section.
    1. For questions on APA style, go to the APA Style Guide.
  8. When you’ve completed your overview, save a copy for yourself and submit by the end of the workshop.
