​Coke financial analysis

Coke financial analysis

This exercise is designed to familiarize you with determining a company’s financial strength and weaknesses. Ratios for one period by themselves usually provide little knowledge or are very useful. Only when they are compared over time or with industry or other norms can you determine if a particular ratio shows a strength, weakness, or is neutral.

To complete this exercise you will need to turn in a table with 6 columns and 22 rows for ratios. In the first column write the name of each ratio. In the next two columns compute Coke ratios for 2016 and 2017 using the textbook information only. Some ratios you will only be able to compute and some ratios you will not be able to calculate at all. Do as many as you can. While you may find similar ratios already calculated on the internet, they almost always were done using more compete financial data than what the textbook uses and will be an incorrect answer for this assignment. The goal is to learn to calculate the ratios and determine their significance and not to get the “right” numbers.

In the fifth column write the Coke’s industry average ratio for the latest period you can find doing research for each ratio. Be sure to indicate the year the ratio applies to. There are several free internet sources that will give you this information for some of the ratios. If you cannot find an industry ratio, write the ratio for the 2017 S&P in the sixth column. You can do both the industry average and the S&P, but it is not necessary. This information is more readily available for almost all the ratios. In the seventh column indicate if you think the Coke ratios show weakness (W), strength (S), or are neutral (N) for each ratio. Base your analysis on analyzing Coke’s changes over time and in comparison to the industry and S&P averages. Finally, determine which 2 or 3 ratios are significant enough to warrant being included on the IFE.
