In your paper, address the following four parts in a Word document:
Part 1: (three to five paragraphs)
Summarize the trends in your company’s ratio performance over the 3 most recent years. Be sure to address the following ratios:
Profitability ratios: ROA, ROE, return on investment (ROI).
Liquidity ratios: quick ratio, current ratio.
Debt management ratios: long-term debt to equity, total debt to equity, interest coverage ratio.
Asset management ratios: total asset turnover, receivables turnover, inventory turnover, and accounts payable turnover.
Per share: book value per share.
Part 2: (two paragraphs)
Interpret whether the trend for each ratio (listed in Part 1) is an improvement or a decline in performance for the company.
Create a table that lists each ratio as either a strength or a weakness in the most current year, based on its trend and your interpretation.
Determine the overall financial strength of the company based on the ratios identified as either strengths or weaknesses.
Consider all the ratios discussed so far. Is the company’s strength the fact that the debt management ratios are improving? Or is it that the liquidity ratios are increasing? Is the company’s weakness that the turnover ratios are declining? Or is the company’s weakness that debt management ratios are weakening?
Categorize the company’s overall ratio performance as either strong, neutral, or weak, based on your determination from the ratios.

In responding to each posting, relate what you have learned in this course to a recent event in the business world.
In your answer, remember to cite your source(s) of information such as the chapters in the text or The Wall Street Journal.
In his best-selling book, The World is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman argues that many of the barriers protecting businesses and employees from global competition have been broken down due to dramatic improvements in communication and transportation technologies. The result is a level playing field that spans the entire world. As we move into the information age, any work that can be digitized will flow to those who are best able to do it, whether they live in San Jose’s Silicon Valley or Bangalore, India. For physical products, supply chains now span the world. For example, raw materials might be extracted in South America, electronic components manufactured in Asia, computers assembled in the United States, and the final products sold in Europe.
Similar changes are occurring in the financial markets as capital flows across the globe to those who can best use it. Indeed, China raised more money through initial public offering than any other country in 2006 and the euro is becoming the currency of choice for denominating global bond issues (Brigham and Ehrhardt).
Cite another example from recent events that highlights the flattening of the world as described by Friedman. Use this example and the examples provided by fellow students to make a prediction about the impact of this phenomenon on your future in the business world.

This discussion will focus on choosing between debt and investment.
Assume you have recently graduated with your business degree, and landed a new position at a company you had been researching during your senior year in college. You have been offered a lump-sum sign-on bonus of $5,000. You currently have a credit card with an outstanding $3,000 balance. You also recently purchased a new condominium and vehicle. These items, in addition to your student loans, comprise your personal debt.
Consider your debt reduction and investment earnings potential, as well as any applicable taxes. Assume that tax rates are stable over the next 10 years, and inflation is low (<1% per year) and does not change. Would you personally choose to invest the $5,000 sign-on bonus, or use it to pay down your debt? Regardless of your decision to either invest or pay down debt, be specific regarding the type of investment or debt payment you would make. Provide specific rationale for your decision. You may develop a quantitative example to support your rationale.

Chapter S3 covers evaluation of portfolio performance. In the real world, alloca

Chapter S3 covers evaluation of portfolio performance. In the real world, allocators and consultants analyze funds for inclusion in their portfolios and usually keep lists of funds in each category. For instance, a consultant might have vetted five or six domestic small cap equity funds that it recommends to its clients. This is known as an “approved list.” Your assignment is to conduct an analysis of a fund of your choice, and write a report advocating a fund for addition to an approved list. It can be a fund in any category, fixed income, equity or alternative. Some of the key aspects of the report should include: • EXECUTIVE SUMMARY – Give the main reasons why you recommend the fund. • PROFILE – The description the fund such as its mandate, style (growth/value/core), cap band (small/mid/large) and geographic focus (domestic/developed/emerging). Also include the fund’s fees and expenses, and amount of assets under management. • PERFORMANCE – The fund’s returns over a one, three and five-year history compared to its benchmark (be sure to note what its benchmark is). Include any other performance metrics you can find. Some suggestions: Sharpe ratio, Sortino ratio, information ratio, historical alpha, beta, duration (for a bond fund). Feel free to use charts and other visual aids. • OTHER INFORMATION – Analyses like this usually include due diligence like the length of tenure of the lead manager, the portfolio’s annual turnover, etc. Again, whatever you can find that you see as relevant. You should choose an actively managed fund for your analysis. You are free to choose a hedge fund or other private fund, but keep in mind that information on public mutual funds is a lot easier to find. The SMC library’s subscription to Morningstar Investment Research Center can be a major resource for this. The report should be a minimum of three pages. As with other assignments, you should be satisfied that you provided all of the information to prove your point. WARNING: You may use sources like Morningstar and Yahoo! Finance, and copy charts from those sites (be sure to cite them). The language of the report should be your own. Copying whole passages from source reports will reduce your grade. The assignment is due at the beginning of class on the date above, turned in on Moodle
