AMAZON is the company Formatting and length guidelines: It would be best if you used APA (American Psychological Association) guidelines for formatting the title page (make sure you give your paper a meaningful title like Financial Analysis of XYZ company), references, in-text citations, and subheads. Some (free) helpful sites on how to do APA style citations are on the PBSC library website:http://palmbeachstate.libguides.com/apa(Links to an external site.) Your paper should be at least 8 pages, plus a Title page, Table of content, and Reference page. You should use MS Word format, double-spacing, 1-inch margins all the way around, page numbers on every page except for the title page, and 12 point Times New Roman font. Correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation are expected. You are also expected to write formally at a collegiate level. Research guidelines: Go tohttp://finance.yahoo.com(Links to an external site.). The instructions that follow refer to how to locate the information in Yahoo, but you may choose to use Hoovers through the PBSC library website (if you are unsure how to locate and search within Hoovers, dont hesitate to get in touch with the library support from the library website) or obtain the financials directly from the company. Search for the publicly traded company you wish to analyze. Towards the top right side of the companys page on Yahoo Finance is a section called Financials. There should be three links Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow. If the company you picked does not have one of those or does not have three years worth of data for each of those, then pick another company. You should have at least four sources other than the textbooks in the class. These sources can be websites, newspaper or journal articles, or books. Dont forget to cite the source of your financials (Yahoo Finance or otherwise). You may use any legitimate source (i.e., National Enquirer is not acceptable, but NY Times is). Writing guidelines:Your paper should have a Table of contents and the following sections using the subheads indicated below. Each section should be at least 2 pages: Part 1 Introduction:In this section, introduce the company you have selected and include basic background information about the size and type of company, locations, and products, competitors, position in the industry, etc.
