Unit II Problem Solving
Part 1 For this assignment you will conduct a comparative DuPont analysis of two companies. Using a search engine, find one large corporation included in the S&P 500. Then, find one of its largest competitors. Go to the investor relations portion of each corporation’s homepage and find their most recent annual report. Complete a DuPont analysis by calculating the ROE, ROA, the profit margin, total asset turnover, and equity multiplier. Also, critique the differences between the two corporations in approximately 100 words.
Part 2 Using the most recent income statements (annual) for the two corporations from Part 1 of the assignment, calculate a common size analysis. Then, discuss the differences in the two corporations in approximately 75 words. Insert your 75word discussion just below your analysis.
Be sure to show all of your work for the calculations. Submit Part 1 and Part 2 together in one Word document.
