an analysis of apple company

PART THREE ONLY

you will perform an in-depth analysis on Apple Company, and prepare a written reaserch report on this company. your target audience are portfolio managers and analysis.

Lenth: three pages of single-spaced text and three optional pages of graphs, charts, spreadsheet, etc. the optional items should be used to illustrate and back up the body and conclusion of your research report. DO NOT include copies of financial statement or chart from 10K/10Q as the portfolio mannger already has access to these items.

the goal of the report will be to determine the intrinsic value of the Apple company using a DCF valuation model.  Determine if the company is overvalued, undervalued, or fairly valed based on your calculations. the important aspects of the report will be the method and logic you use to come up with your “accurate” valuation. the structure of the reoprt and the date/exhibits will be left up to you.

you valuation must make sense and effectively back-up the report’s conclusion. Include a copy of your valuation spreadsheet as one of your exhibits.

It is useful to become familiar with other Wall Street research reports and see how the “Pro’s” value a comany. once you have your valuation, be sure to compare and contrast your valuation vs. that of the current market. remember that you will be graded on how well you make your valuation case, using a valuation method that is both sound accurate.

Major topics to cover in the report:

  • business model analysis
    • who are their competitors?
    • how do they make their money?
    • is it sustainable? Scalable?
  • risk / return and financial ratio analysis
