Problem Solving

Part 1
For this assignment you will conduct a comparative DuPont analysis of two companies. Using a search engine, find one large corporation included in the S&P 500. Then, find one of its largest competitors. Go to the investor relations portion of each corporation’s homepage and find their most recent annual report. Complete a DuPont analysis by calculating the ROE, ROA, the profit margin, total asset turnover, and equity multiplier. Also, critique the differences between the two corporations in approximately 100 words.
Part 2
Using the most recent income statements (annual) for the two corporations from Part 1 of the assignment, calculate a common size analysis. Then, discuss the differences in the two corporations in approximately 75 words. Insert your 75-word discussion just below your analysis.
