# Week 2 discussion | Accounting homework help

Financial analysts must evaluate the performance of the company and compare that performance over time. One way to evaluate the financial performance of a company is to calculate financial ratios. Ratios can be used to assess a company’s profitability, liquidity, efficiency, and financial risk (leverage). Changes in these ratios over time can alert a financial analyst to poor management or strong shareholder returns. For this discussion, you will calculate some common financial ratios for your chosen publicly traded company.

Prepare:

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum,

Calculate:

• Calculate two ratios for your chosen company, according to your last name and the list below. Using Appendix A from Week 1, calculate the ratios for your chosen company for the two most recent years available in the financial statements.
• Last names A through C: Return on assets (ROA) and return on equity (ROE).
• Last names D through F: Long-term debt to equity ratio and interest coverage ratio.
• Last names G through I: Gross profit margin and net profit margin.
• Last names J through L: Current ratio and quick ratio.
• Last names M through O: Inventory turnover and receivables turnover.
• Last names P through R: Days sales outstanding and days inventory outstanding.
• Last names S through U: Book value per share and price-to-book.
• Last names V through Z: Earnings per share and price-earnings (P/E) ratio.
