Financial Analysis

FIN 515 Week 1 DQ 1


Accounting Versus Finance

Accounting Versus Finance


(graded)
Much of the analysis done by
financial managers is based on
numbers that are different from
what would seem to the
corresponding numbers
presented in the financial
statements. This difference is
not due to any kind of cooking
the books or other attempts to
mislead anyone. One example is
the use of market value rather
than historical cost in the
valuation of assets.

Financial Analysis (graded)

In this discussion, we will be


working with the variety of
financial analysis tools
available to us. Let's start with
the DuPont Identity introduced
in Chapter 2 of the text. For
your initial post, locate the
financial statements for two
firms in one industry.
Calculate all four terms of the
DuPont Identity and present
the results but do not analyze
the results.
