The course project is designed to help students learn more about:

  • How to read financial statements
  • How to use financial statement information to learn more about the financial condition of a company
  • How to write about financial information

 

These are the steps:

  • Company selected is Starbucks. Find the annual report that includes the financial statements on-line.
  • Use the Excel worksheets provided (related to chapter 13 material) to do financial analysis.  You may need to find more than the current year of financial information or the current annual report may have trend information you can use.
  • Write the paper (see outline below) and include the financial analysis in your paper.  The paper should be about 1,000 words not including the tables and charts.  See separate instructions on the various options for bringing your analysis information into the paper.

 

Suggestion Outline:

  • Introduction:  describe the company, give some overall information about the company both nonfinancial and financial.  Nonfinancial should include things like where they are located, how long they’ve been in business what they do, etc..  Financial might be high level things like total assets, current ratio, total revenues, net income, maybe stock info if publicly traded.
  • Analysis:  show the results of your analysis and something about what it means.
  • Conclusion:  what have you learned about the company and uses of financial information.

 

 

Using the annual report for Starbucks, complete the analysis worksheets and prepare an approximately 1000 word paper describing the company, the results of your analysis and your conclusions and comments.  See sample outline.
