The purpose of the second part of the comprehensive project is to compute financial statement ratios. Based on the company you selected.

DO ONLY Part – B (DONT do Part – A)

Attached Part – A

Company: ‘Target corporation’

Part – A

1. Based on formulas in your textbook, compute the following ratios for two years. You may use Excel to compute your ratios.
1. Debt ratio
2. Gross profit margin
3. Free cash flow
4. Times interest earned
5. Accounts receivable turnover
6. Inventory turnover
2. Prepare a DuPont Analysis of ROE for two years, including computations of
1. Return on Sales
2. Asset Turnover
3. Return on Assets
4. Financial Leverage
5. Return on Equity

Part – B

1. Briefly evaluate the ratio trends. Indicate on your worksheet whether each ratio is:
1. stronger / weaker
2. quicker /slower
3. more / less liquid
4. more / less risk
1. Write a 3-6 page report evaluating trends in all of the above ratios. Discuss whether your company’s profitability, efficiency, liquidity, and solvency are improving or deteriorating. Suggest ways the company can improve the ratios that show problems. The report should be well written with cover page, introduction, the body of the paper (with appropriate subheadings), conclusion, and reference page. References must be appropriately cited.

Format: Double-spaced, one-inch margins, using a 12-point Times New Roman font. Use APA throughout.

TARGET CORPORATION 2

1) computed the following ratios for two years

2) DuPont Analysis of ROE for two years

To perform DuPont analysis for the return on assets, we first compute the return on sales and the asset turnover. The formula for return on sales is net income divided by revenues. Meanwhile, asset turnover is calculated as revenues divided by total assets. Suppose the return on sales and asset turnover is multiplied by each other. In that case, the result will be equal to the return on assets, calculated as net income divided by total assets.

To perform DuPont analysis for the return on equity, we first compute the return on sales, total asset turnover, and financial leverage (equity multiplier). As said earlier, the return on sales is equal to net income divided by revenues. Total asset turnover is equal to revenues divided by total assets. Financial leverage (equity multiplier) is computed as total assets divided by total equity. If you multiply the return on sales by the total asset turnover and by the financial leverage, we can calculate the return on equity, which can alternatively be computed as net income divided by total equity
