Description

 

 

 

 

This course contains a Course Project, where you will be required to submit one draft of the project at the end of Week 5, and the final completed project at the end of Week 7. Using the financial statements for Celgene Corporation and Gilead Sciences, Inc., respectively, you will calculate and compare the financial ratios listed further down this document for the fiscal year ending 2015, and prepare your comments about the two companies’ performances based on your ratio calculations. The entire project will be graded by the instructor at the end of the final submission in Week 7, and one grade will be assigned for the entire project.

 Overall Requirements

 

  

For the Final Submission:

  

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, and so forth.

 

3.      All 16 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.  You need to specifically state which company performed better for each ratio.

 

4.      The Summary and Conclusions Worksheet tab is an overall comparison of how each company compares in terms of the major category of ratios described in Chapter 13 of your textbook. 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. Any other information that you use to profile the companies should also be cited as a reference.

  7. Free cash flow
  8. Price-Earnings Ratio (Multiple) [For the purpose of this ratio, look up the market price per share as of December 31, 2015 for Celgene Corporation and for Gilead Sciences, Inc..]

 

The Excel files uploaded in the Dropboxes should not include any unnecessary numbers or information (such as previous years' ratios, ratios that were not specifically asked for in the project, etc.).

  

Please upload your final submission to the Week 7 Dropbox by the Sunday ending Week 7.

 

For the Draft:

  

Create an Excel spreadsheet or use the project template to show your computations for the first 10 ratios listed above. The more you can complete regarding the other requirements, the closer you will be to completion when Week 7 arrives. Supporting calculations must be shown either as a formula or as text typed into a different cell. If you plan on creating your own spreadsheet, please follow the format provided in the Tootsie Roll and Hershey template file. 

 

 

Please upload your draft submission to the Week 5 Dropbox by the Sunday at the end of Week 5.

 

 

Other Helpful Information:

  

If you feel uncomfortable with Excel, you can find many helpful tutorials on Excel by performing a Google search.

  

Chapter 13 contains ratio calculations and comparison comments related to Apple and Dell, so you will likely find this information helpful.

 

 

 

BigCharts.com provides historical stock quotes.

  

Either APA or MLA style can be used to complete the references on your Bibliography tab. There is a tutorial for APA and MLA style within the Plagiarism link, which can be accessed through the Syllabus.

The entire project will be graded by the instructor at the end of the final submission in Week 7, and one grade will be assigned for the entire project. The project will count for 15% of your overall course grade.
