1. Provide an analysis of the industry the firm competes in, and their relative position/strength within that industry. Make sure to include important information about projected trends and future sales and profits in the industry.
2. Provide a qualitative overview of the company, including information on company structure, leadership, products, and the markets in which they operate, as well as any other information you believe is useful.
3. Conduct a thorough financial statement analysis, and describe the company’s financial strengths and weaknesses. What are the company’s performance trends? Any issues there?

Evaluate the company’s capital structure and determine an appropriate stock price based on this analysis. (You will need to calculate the company’s WACC to do this – please calculate the equity cost of capital on your own, without relying on metrics provided by financial data service.)
5. Assuming that we would be adding this company’s stock to a well-diversified portfolio of stocks, provide a reasoned recommendation as to whether or not we should invest.6.Your report should be 15 – 20 pages of double-spaced text, with as many accompanying figures and appendices as you need. Please include a references section, and provide appropriate citations in the text or footnotes for all information you take from other sources. One appendix should include a full set of financial statements.
6. Conduct an original financial statement analysis and valuation based on data from the company’s financial statements and your own projections of future cash flows (albeit informed by information drawn from other sources).
7. The technical analysis is very important, but so is your writing and the ability to discuss and analyze the numbers. The writing must be CLEAR AND ORGANIZED most of all, and your discussion should convey learned insights about the company. A poor report would be one that appears to regurgitate a bunch of facts without much thoughtful analysis.
