GRADE BREAKDOWN ANALYSIS OUTLINE
Describe the overall/broad summary of the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows. What trends do you notice from both years? Why do you think the numbers show such a dramatic change, and what do you think would cause these numbers to change in such a fashion?
Calculate at least three ratios from the following categories: liquidity ratios, capital structure ratios, asset management efficiency ratios, profitability ratios, and market value ratios.
Describe what each of the ratios from the above calculations show as a trend for the company. Do the ratios show the company is improving or deteriorating from a financial standpoint? Take a close look at the assets and liabilities of the company. What conclusions can you draw from what this company is doing? Would you invest in this company? Why or why not?
