The analysis and recommendation must be written in the form of a business memorandum from the Equity Research team (you) to the Portfolio Manager (me) and must include each of the following components.
Analyze three items on the balance sheet (or balance sheet-based financial ratios; see the list on page 4) for your base company for the last three years and discuss whether the company’s performance related to these items appear to be improving, deteriorating, or remaining stable. Justify your answer.
Additional Instructions on the Memo:
Your memorandum should be 1.5 pages of text and must be formatted as follows: double-spaced with one-inch margins (top/bottom/left/right), using Times New Roman 12-point font. The text of your memo should comprise the first six pages of your document (i.e., do not include a cover page).
All data used in the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow analysis must be taken directly from the financial statements. That is, for these sections you may not use data obtained from external (e.g. internet) sources – the data must be sourced directly from the company’s annual financial statements.
Immediately after the text – on the last page of your document – you must include a worksheet in which you provide detail supporting all ratio calculations referenced in the text. Every financial value used must include a reference to the page of the annual report from which the number was extracted, and the relevant portions of the annual reports must be highlighted (see item 4 below).
Any referenced pages of the annual report (for both companies) must be appended at the end of the document (starting on page 8). Do not attach the entire annual reports – only the referenced pages. (Adobe Acrobat has a tool which can extract pages from one PDF and insert them into another PDF file.)
Your memorandum must also contain appropriate quotation marks for quoted material and appropriate citations for material taken from sources outside the financial statements. Financial or other values used in the Other items and Investment decision sections that are not sourced from the financial statements must include appropriate citations. Failure to cite quoted materials from any source except the financial statements will result in a penalty to your grade up to and including a zero on the project.
