Evaluating Risks Returns and Equity Costs
Paper details:
This module’s course project assignment lets you examine the company’s risks, returns, and equity costs. Use the same company that you analyzed previously APPLE INC. Prepare a paper which discusses the following items:
Identify Risks: Identify and discuss some of the primary risks the company faces in the near future. These should be at the company, industry, and economy-wide levels. Discuss ways, if any, that the company can mitigate these risks. (Good sources include: the company’s annual report, analyst reports, recent news about the company, Yahoo! and Google Finance, Mergent, Hoover’s, etc.)
Annual Stock Prices and Returns:
Create a table showing the stock prices for the past five years (you can either use an average annual price or the ending price at a given date). This data can be found at Yahoo! Finance. Choose “Historical Prices” and then you can select a range of dates by month and download as a table. You will need to convert the monthly data to annual data.
Calculate the annual returns for each year.
Calculate the average stock price, average return, and standard deviation over this period.
Stock Beta and Cost of Equity:
Identify the beta for your company. (You can find this at Yahoo! Finance choosing “Key Statistics” and look for the beta.)
Using the CAPM equation and beta you identified, calculate the company’s cost of equity. Note: you will need the risk-free rate and the market risk premium. For the risk free rate, you can use the 10-year rate of the US Treasury Bonds (which you can find through a Google search). For the market risk premium, use 10.5% minus the risk-free rate.
Paper Mechanics should be as follows:
There is no minimum page length requirement for this paper.
The paper should be in APA format (e.g., cover page, double-spaced, 12 pt font, reference section at end, etc.).
The paper should include at least 2 sources, such as the annual report, Yahoo! Finance or Google Finance, the company’s web site, etc.
The paper should be divided into the sections indicated above (label each section clearly).
Again the company is APPLE INC
