Case Study Instructions: Overall

In this topic you will select a publicly traded company and submit the name of the company to the instructor for approval by the end of the topic. Note: You will need to have this step finalized before you can complete the assignment detailed below, so it is in your best interest to select and obtain approval as soon as possible.

Select a company that is public and enjoys extensive analyst coverage (e.g., Apple, GE, Southwest Airlines, Walgreen, Exxon Mobile) to insure access to sufficient financially oriented material regarding your chosen company. The more information available, the easier it will be to perform the financial analysis.

As you move through the nine steps in conducting your analysis, you will research the market at each step for relevant data on your chosen company, including analyst reports and market information. Disclose all assumptions you are making in the case study (e.g., revenue growth projections, expense controls) and provide supporting reasons and evidence behind those assumptions. As your case study analysis develops over the span of the course, you will synthesize the research data and outcomes of the nine-step assessment process in order to assess the long-term financial health of the chosen company.

Component 1:

For this assignment, apply the following two steps of the nine-step assessment process to develop a 500-word analysis of the company you have selected and which has been approved by your course instructor:

  1. Analysis of Fundamentals: Goals, Strategy, Market, Competitive Technology, Regulatory, and Operating Characteristics
  2. Analysis of Fundamentals: Revenue Outlook

Note: You will be required to resubmit this assignment, revised to incorporate all instructor feedback, along with the other three component assignments as one comprehensive submission in Topic 8. To save time later in the course, consider addressing any feedback soon after this assignment has been graded and returned to you.

Loan Project: Buying a House

For this assignment, you will analyze a home mortgage loan.

1. Find a description, asking price, and real estate taxes of a house for sale,

and decide on a purchase price you would be willing to pay (assuming you

have the means). Find a current market interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate

mortgage having a down payment of 20 percent of the purchase price.

monthly income needed to qualify for the loan? What is the minimum

annual income needed? (Note: This is a simplified minimum income

requirement calculation, for the purposes of this project, as it does not take

the month and year of the last payment. Find the date of the first month

when the amount applied to the principal exceeds the amount of interest

paid. How many of the 360 payments have been made at this point?

7. Assuming that the mortgage is held for the full 30 years, compute the total

principal paid and the total interest paid.

you found to be particularly interesting, and why.

Your report must include

• name of project and your name

• house’s description, asking price, and real estate taxes, the purchase price,

My Perspective on Emily Dickerson living a life of loneliness based off her poems. All the poems that I read by her this week was about death. I think that her being alone so much she thought maybe dying was the way to escape her loneliness. The only one that did not talk about dying was I’m nobody who are you, and Wild Nights-Wild nights. I felt a funeral in my brain talks about someone having a funeral in her brain. Where she felt the Mourners to and fro kept treading and treading till it seemed. Pg. 576. She also expressed how her mind was going numb because of it. Because I could not stop for death talks about how she couldn’t stop for death but he stopped for her. It tells of how she and death rode in a carriage just for themselves and immortality. Pg. 577. It also talks about how they visited every stage of her life. Loneliness can be a terrible thing because people do give up on life and sometimes they even take their lives. It also can send you into a state of depression.


In the poems of Emily, there occur many instances where she refers to her seclusion and loneliness, and she claims that the two can be pretty wonderful. Emily enjoyed a normal social life when she was a school girl. She is described as being passionate yet distant. Dickinson loves her loneliness, and she feels that she cannot live without it.

Dickinson lived a life that was full of loneliness as the poems show her longing for intimacy and passion. In the poem, I’m nobody the theme of loneliness is present, and it shows how Dickinson lived her life as if she was the only one on earth. She expresses that she loved to be left in isolation as she expresses in the poem saying that being somebody would be boring. This thus shows that she really treasured her alone life as being somebody would force her to go public. Loneliness is also present in the poem I felt a funeral in my brain. Loneliness begins to creep in when an individual is bereaved, and the poet expresses how the grief caused her much pain to the extent she falls into depression, and this is evident in the line where she says “my mind was going numb” (line 8). The depression thus causes Emily to love staying alone as she deals with her grief. Most of the works by Emily show how she loved to be left alone as she finds solitude to be a beautiful thing.
