Need help with my Finance question – I’m studying for my class.Introduction:This is your next ‘brain stretching’ exercise. The intent of these assignments is to push you to explore and develop your skills. You are welcome to invest whatever effort you like into these, the purpose is not for you to sink days of effort into them. Most brain stretching exercises can be completed relatively quickly if you look for ways of being efficient in your work. I.e., if you are engaged in a highly repetitive task that seems like it will take hours to complete, there is likely a better way to proceed.My hope is that you will completely solve these challenges, but, I’ll be lenient on the grading provided you’ve given it a real effort. I’m also willing to offer advice if you are stuck. If you’ve made some headway and aren’t sure what to do next, please feel free to drop by my office.Instructions:Select two publicly traded companies in the same industry (companies which compete with one another), and a third company in an entirely different industry. For example, you might choose Walmart and Target (competitors), and General Electric (from a different industry). Part A:Find the data from (at east) their three most recent annual reports, and prepare an excel analysis that compares the income statements, balance sheets, and statements of cash flow using the ‘common size’ approach. With at least three reports from three different companies, you’ll require the data from at least nine annual reports. Arrange the common-sized data for the different firms/years together so that it’s easy to see the similarities and differences over time, and among the firms. The goal is a table of common-sized data for each of the three financial statements. But, each of those tables will include three years worth of data for each of the three firms.Part B:Preparing a report is great, but, interpreting and explaining it makes it useful. Review your data and interpret what you see. Are the common-sized numbers similar among the firms? Why or why not? Make some educated guesses about why there are or aren’t differences, i.e., explain the results of your analysis. Part C:Select several of the financial ratios we discussed, and prepare a second report that compares these firms using these ratios. Part D:Calculating the ratios is a relatively straightforward exercise once you have the data in hand. However, determining what those ratios tell us about the business Review your data and interpret what you see. Are the ratios similar between the firms? Why or why not? Make some educated guesses about why there are or aren’t differences.
