Prepare a PowerPoint presentation using the template above in APA format which will act as a FAQ/Shareholder Analysis. Evaluate economic conditions that influence company performance. This applies to any company. Give examples of political, environmental, currency (money), global economics, and government influences on economic conditions. Compare market conditions in 2017 with Apple’s specific performance for that year. Conclude how the market conditions that year influenced the company’s performance, such as interest rates, Federal Reserve Bank monetary policy changes (use the following link: Fed Monetary Report 2017, and other market conditions relevant to the company selected. Analyze year-over-year performance from 2016 and 2017. Use Macrotrends to find the following key metrics or ratios: PE ratio, price to book, return on assets, and return on equity. Include those figures in your conclusions. Use 09/30/2016 & 09/30/2017 dates. You must use Macrotrends for the key metrics ratios using the following links: Apple PE Ratio, Apple Price to Book Ratio, Apple ROA, & Apple ROE. Again, you do not need to calculate anything. Macrotrends has done the work for you.
IMPORTANT: You must use Apple for this assignment. You must use Macrotrends for the data. You must use the template provided to you above. No other formats will be accepted (ie Word). This is the basic outline for the assignment with additional “hints and guidance” (including information location notes). You should not need to add any extra slides. Discussions should be handled within the speaker notes, not on the slides.
