Write a 4â€“6 page paper in which you do the following:
- Provide a detailed overview of the stock of the publicly traded U.S. corporation you selected in the assignment of Week 4. Provide the rationale for your selection and plans for a diversified portfolio.(I chose eBay, I’m 30 years old and I prefer long term investment like 2-5 year to chose the best portfolio option)
- Select five financial ratios, then analyze the past three years of financial data for the investment (please obtain data from the financial statements or the equivalent).
- Analyze the price of the investment to stock market beta for the past five years.
- Create a trend line that depicts the price movement for the investment against the market index movement using elements of Microsoft Office, such as Excel, Visio, MS Project, or one of their equivalents (such as Open Project, Dia, and OpenOffice), as appropriate. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length. ( for this point I prefer excel).
- Determine the type of investor who would be the best candidate for the chosen investment (e.g., a risk-averse investor, an aggressive investor, a broker, and a dealer in the market). Provide a rationale for why this investment is a solid choice. Support your assertion that someone with the investor profile you outlined should invest in this stock.
- Use at least five quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as academic resources. Visit the Strayer University Library.
