Exam Content
Business managers are often responsible for the financial transactions and planning for a company.
In Week 1, you selected a Fortune 500 company or another company you are familiar with. This company will be referred to as “your company” or “the large company you selected in Week 1.”
As the new business manager working for the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of your company, you want to review historical financial information to be fully informed of your company’s business valuation so you can provide guidance on near future financial decisions.
You decide to put together a presentation on your company’s financial performance that assesses the cash flow, valuation, and KPIs for financial stability that you will present at the next management meeting.
Your ultimate plan is to write a financial plan that will lead to future company growth.
Assessment Deliverable
Using your selected company and research from Week 1, create an 8- to 10-slide presentation to assess the company’s financial growth and sustainability.
Identify 2 key performance indicators.
Relate the stock price to price-to-earnings ratio.
Explain the market capitalization and what it means to the investor.
Identify trends in stock price, dividend payout, and total stockholders’ equity. Relate recent events or market conditions to the trends you identified.
Determine, based on your analysis, whether you think the organization is going to meet its financial goals, describe the outlook for growth and sustainability, and explain why you do or do not recommend this stock for purchase and how your recommendation compares to that of other analysts.
For example, if your suggestion is buy, you need to explain why other analysts say sell.
Cite references to support your assessment according to APA guidelines.

Background

After graduating from Rasmussen University, you decide to take your grandma’s secret pizza recipe and open up a pizza parlor. You grew up around your father’s pizza shop quite a few years ago, and you are eager to start your own business. You are confident that your pizza place will be successful, and maybe you can franchise.

With an entrepreneurial spirit, you take out a business loan for the startup fund, hire several employees, and open a beautiful store you are proud of. After months of hard work and experimentation with new recipes, you are devastated when you learn that your store manager has been stealing from you. One of your recent employees tells you that the manager, Robert, voided a sale of two-dozen pizzas, stamped the receipt as a return, and pocketed the money during her last shift. Robert warned the new hire not to say anything and told her he deserved the money because he didn’t get paid enough. Encouraged by your open-door policy, the employee confides in you.
