For this assignment you are required to produce a report on investment in equities.
It is now November 2008 and you have £5,000 to invest.
You have decided to invest in a retail chain. You will need to refer to the November 2008 financial pages to decide which company to buy shares in.
You will then follow the performance of your company and shares over the next 3 years:
2009, 2010 and 2011.
Report Content -
-You are required to write a report on the performance of your shares. Your report should include the following:
-An explanation of why you chose that company. This should include some analysis of the financial pages and the company accounts for 2008. -You may include other aspects such as ethical issues if you wish. 8 marks
-How many shares your investment bought. 2 marks
-How much you have earned in dividends in total over the 3 years. 6 marks
-The value of your investment at the end of the 3 years. 2 marks
-At the end of the three years carry out a ratio analysis on your company. This should include a comparison with either one of the other teams’ company or previous years of your company. Use your analysis to decide if you are going to continue investing in your company, sell your shares or reinvest in another company. 10 marks for calculations, 12 marks for analysis
Report Structure -
Formal short report style is required. However, the assignment front page will count as the report headers. You can then go straight into the report.
You must show all your figures, dividend tables, company accounts, ratio formula and calculations in numbered appendices at the end of the report. Failure to do so will result in loss of marks.
You should make reference to the relevant appendix in the report.
Any of the following styles are acceptable:
• Appendix 1.1 shows that...
• .... (appendix 1.1)
• ..... See appendix 1.1.
However the appendix itself should be referenced in the normal way. For example:
Source: Tesco Annual Report 2011
Number style for appendices is of your own choosing but must be logical.
Graphs may be shown in the body of the report but should still be referenced as above.
Any web sites, texts or articles etc that you use must be fully referenced in the usual Harvard manner.
The report should be no more than 1000 words.
