BUSN320 Regent WK4 Annual Financial Statements Over the Past Five Years

Minor Project – Trend Analysis: Students will perform a financial trend analysis that is due in Week 4:

  1. Select a publicly traded company and obtain its annual financial statements over the past five years.
  2. Conduct a trend analysis on the company’s financial performance over five years (use the text as a guide on developing the trend analysis).
  3. Include in your paper the company’s vision and mission or a brief background of the company’s business operations. Also, examine the company’s corporate social responsibility statement and reflect on it in your paper.
  4. Include tables and charts for relevant data in your analysis.
  5. The paper should contain 1,500 words.You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
    Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
    Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor
