Benchmark – Interpreting Financial Statements

The purpose of this assignment is to employ accounting principles and relevant business practices to evaluate a companyâ€s performance and financial position through a comparison to industry data.
Locate the Critical Thinking CT 10.4 problem at the end of Chapter 10 in the textbook. This will serve as the structure for your assignment. Begin by choosing two competing publicly traded companies from the list below.

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo
Walmart and Target
Nike and Adidas

For the pair of companies selected, you will need to use each companyâ€s stock symbol to locate the liquidity, solvency, and profitability ratios on the MSN Money website. As part of your research, you will need to identify each companyâ€s stock symbol for the American market.
Review the competing companies†ratios provided at the MSN Money website https://www.msn.com/en-us/moneywww.msn.com . Navigate to My Watchlist and enter the name of the company in the Quote Search. Identify and select the correct stock symbol.
Under the “Analysis” heading, use the Growth, Profitability, Price Ratios, Financial Health, Trading Statistics, and Management Effectiveness information to complete a 750-1,000 word comparison addressing the following:  

Evaluate each companyâ€s liquidity relative to its competitor using at least three ratios
Evaluate each companyâ€s solvency relative to its competitor using at least two ratios
Evaluate each companyâ€s profitability relative to its competitor using at least three ratios

Note: You will be assessed on your ability to evaluate each companyâ€s performance based on the information provided at MSN Money. You do not need to calculate the ratios for individual companies or the industry averages.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
