FIN 370 Week 2
Industry Averages and Financial Ratios Paper


 

Find a publicly-traded company using a financial
information website. Some example companies include the following:


  • Safeway Inc.

  • The Boeing
    Company

  • General
    Motors Company

  • Intel
    Corporation

  • Microsoft
    Corporation

  • Exxon Mobil
    Corporation



Watch the Industry Averages
and Financial Ratios video and use the industry classification from the
financial services website to locate the company's SIC code on the U.S.
Department of Labor's website.

Find the industry ratios for the company
using the Dun & Bradstreet® Key Business Ratios.

Locate the Dunn &
Bradstreet Database by accessing the University of Phoenix Library and then
locating Library Resources. Click on Alphabetical List of Resources and find
Dunn and Bradstreet. Click on the link and search for your selected company.

If your company's SIC code does not appear in the
dropdown menu, choose another company.

Assume the inventory ratio is based on a
traditional inventory system, but globalized markets and the supply chain make
it critical to adopt lean principles to create a more efficient system.

Calculate the 14 ratios (show your calculations)
for the company using the two most recent annual financial statements found on
the financial information website you used earlier. Be careful not to use
quarterly information, and include ratios for both years.

Note. You can access a downloadable Ratio Guide PDF
by clicking the Help Guide link in the upper-right of the Dun &
Bradstreet® Key Business Ratios window.

Compare the ratios for the company you selected
with the appropriate industry ratios including profitability, solvency, and
efficiency ratios shown on the Dun & Bradstreet® report.

Write a 350-word response about how the
company you selected performed compared with the industry.
