FINA 408 Individual Final Company Analysis Project

Grading Guidelines
The Final Company Analysis Project is worth 30% of your final grade in the course.  The paper is graded on a 100-point scale.  The following describes the breakdown of points available:
25 points for ORGANIZATION
This is a long and complicated paper, so it is essential that you are organized in your presentation of the information.  Please be sure to present each item in the order suggested by the outline and have clear headings and sub-headings to make it easy to follow.  Also, it is important to organize the paper in a way that prevents the reader from having to flip back and forth from one section to another to follow the discussion (e.g., ensure that each ratio/calculation is discussed immediately after it is presented, rather than having a separate table elsewhere in the report. 
25 points for ANALYSIS
To receive the full amount of points for this category, be sure to provide thorough discussion of your analysis process and an explanation of what the ration/calculation means.  It is important to demonstrate that you have a good understanding of why each calculation was done, and what information can be learned from it.  Also, in this section I remove points for any situation where I feel that the analysis presented is not the students’ original work (i.e., taken from another source without attribution.)  While you can certainly refer to other analysts’ work regarding your company, please be sure to conduct your own analyses and draw your own conclusions throughout the paper.
25 points for THOROUGHNESS
In order to receive the full amount of points available for this portion of the paper, you must include every item listed on the general outline provided at the beginning of the course.  Points will be removed if any item is missing from the analysis. 
25 points for CONTENT
In this category, I am assessing the extent to which the entire report provides a complete analysis of the company, utilizing the steps we practiced throughout the course.  Do you tie it all together with connecting themes and findings?  Or, is it just a list of the various calculations with a sentence or two in between explaining each.  A successful paper will present a congruous and thorough analysis of the company with insightful and thoughtful commentary throughout.
Project Outline

The most recent data should be used in your analyses (i.e., data from the most recently-filed Form 10-K).  For all calculations, show each formula used as well as the numbers used in the formula.  Explain any assumptions made and provide justifications for your assumptions.  Cite any sources used other than the company’s SEC filings.  The following is an outline for your individual project:
