Chart the historical prices based on the monthly data, Operation Research

Choose a publicly traded company (NYSE, AMX, or OTC) that interests you. If you don't know how to choose a company, think of IBM, DELL computer, Nike, Apple computer, GM, Ford, Nokia, Home Depot, and on and on. Think of the companies that make things you use everyday. Choose one from them. 

Part A.

Go to COMPUSTAT Research Insights, Reuter's, Thomson Financial Service, or Bloomberg Financial (E-Trade Financial Learning Center has them all) or any other financial database such as Yahoo Finance to download the historical closing prices (five years) of your company on the monthly basis (twelve data points a year).  Use Microsoft Excel or any other program to chart the historical prices based on the monthly data. (Getting to know these financial databases is one of the objectives of this project)   

Part B.

Based on the financial statements of the latest available annual report, calculate the following financial ratios using only one year data. If the ratios are not available, please explain why. For example, Citibank doesn't have inventory because it's a financial company.   

(Please use spreadsheet software (MS Excel) for this part and show your calculation)  

Current ratio

Quick ratio

Inventory Turnover

Fixed assets turnover

Total assets turnover

Total debt to total assets

Profit margin on sales

Return on total assets

Return on common equity

Price/earnings ratio

Market/book ratio  

The final report should include a chart of monthly stock price movements described in part A and the financial ratios in part B above.
