Hi prof, can you help me with this? This assignment is to do a complete ratio analysis of a firm. You can choose any firm that you would like to. The ratio analysis should include each of the main areas—profitability, solvency, liquidity, and efficiency. It should include a time-series analysis of these areas that covers a minimum of either 4 years (using a particular quarter for each year—1st,2nd, 3rd, or 4th) or a minimum of 8 consecutive quarters. The analysis should also include comparisons with industry averages or another firm or firms in the industry. The paper should include an introduction that acquaints the audience to the firm, the industry, and where the firm fits in the industry. You can decide the format of your ratio analysis. You should examine most if not all of the ratios covered in the textbook. You should also develop your own ratios—ratios that you think are particularly useful in describing what is happening in the firm or how the firm compares to the industry. In some ways this assignment is like completing four separate discussion assignments where you are choosing four primary ratios—one from each of the main areas (profitability, solvency, liquidity, and efficiency).
