FNCE Final Paper – 5

**  Please read following instructions carefully  **

Financial Analysis of Culp, Inc. (NYSE Ticker CULP) or Barclays PLC (NYSE Ticker BCS

For the Final Paper, I think Culp Inc. (NYSE Ticker CULP) OR Barclays PLC (NYSE Ticker BCS) would be a good choice however if you prefer a different company let me know now as I need to advise my teacher for his approval. Be sure that it is large enough, so it contains a lot of easily found financial information. Using the financial data you find, you will develop a report which analyzes the company’s current finances and makes recommendations for the future.

An easy way to include financial information in your Final Paper is to use a financial website, such as one of the following:

•   Yahoo Finance: http://finance.yahoo.com/

•   Google Finance: https://www.google.com/finance

•   Forbes: http://www.forbes.com/finance/

•   Bloomberg: http://www.bloomberg.com/

You can use these websites to find a wealth of financial information on your company and their competitors by using the “Search” or “Get Quotes” feature and the stock ticker of your chosen company.

•   Executive Summary (250 – 350 words)
