Description of this paper



Question Your final Excel workbook submission should contain the following. You cannot use any other software but Excel to complete this Project. 1) A completed worksheet title page tab which is really a cover sheet with your name, the course, the date, your instructor?s name and the title for the project. 2) A completed worksheet profiles tab which contains a one paragraph description regarding each company with information about their history, what products they sell, where they are located, etc. 3) All 18 ratios for each company with the supporting calculations and commentary on your worksheet ratio tab. Supporting calculations must be shown either as a formula or as text typed into a different cell. The ratios are listed further down this document. Your comments for each ratio should include more than just a definition of the ratio. You should focus on interpreting each ratio number for each company and support your comments with the numbers found in the ratios. 4) The Summary and Conclusions worksheet tab which is an overall comparison of how each company compares in terms of the major category of ratios (Liquidity, Profitability, and Solvency). A nice way to conclude is to state which company you think is the better investment and why. 5) The Bibliography worksheet tab must contain at least your textbook as a reference.
