Interpreting Financial Results

Resource:  Financial Statements for the company assigned by your instructor in Week 2.

 

Review a company’s financial statements from the past three years.

 

Calculate the financial ratios for the company’s financial statements, and then interpret those results against company historical data as well as industry benchmarks: 

 

  • Compare the financial ratios with each of the preceding three (3) years (e.g. 2014 with 2013; 2013 with 2012; and 2012 with 2011).
  • Compare the calculated financial ratios against the industry benchmarks for the industry of your assigned company.
