Research guidelines:Go to http://finance.yahoo.com. The instructions that follow refer to how to locate the information in Yahoo but you may choose to use Hoovers through the PBSC library website (if you are unsure how to locate and search within Hoovers, please contact library support from the library website) or obtain the financials directly from the company.
Search for the company you wish to analyze. If you choose a publicly traded company, their financials will be listed in Yahoo Finance and Hoovers. If you choose a private company, you must obtain their financials directly from them and submit the financials as appendices to your final project. On the bottom left hand corner of the companys page on Yahoo Finance is a section called Financials. There should be three links — Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow. If the company you picked does not have one of those or does not have three years worth of data for each of those, then pick another company. You should have at least two sources other than the textbooks in the class. These sources can be websites, newspaper or journal articles or books. Dont forget to cite the source of your financials (Yahoo Finance or otherwise). You may use any legitimate source (i.e. National Enquirer is not acceptable but NY Times is).
Introduction:In this section, introduce the company you have selected and include basic background information about the size and type of company, locations and products.500 words
