Financial Analysis – Pepsico Inc.

...Financial Analysis – PepsiCo Inc. In 1893, a pharmacist named Caleb Bradham invented a tonic, which he called "Brad's drink". This drink was carbonated and contained sugar, vanilla, rare oils, pepsin, and cola nuts. Bradham sold his drink at his pharmacy's soda fountain and by 1898, "Brad's drink" had been renamed to Pepsi Cola (Zokawics, 2007). Pepsi existed on the brink of ruin under various owners until Loft Candy bought it in 1931. Its fortunes improved in 1933 when, in the midst of the Depression, it doubled the size of its bottles to 12 ounces without raising the five-cent price. In 1939 Pepsi introduced the world's first radio jingle. Two years later Loft Candy merged with its Pepsi subsidiary and became The Pepsi-Cola Company. PepsiCo Inc. is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Purchase, New York, with interests in the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of grain-based snack foods, beverages, and other products. PepsiCo was formed in 1965 with the merger of the Pepsi-Cola Company and Frito-Lay, Inc. PepsiCo has since expanded from just the Pepsi product to a broader range of food and beverage brands, the largest of which include an acquisition of Tropicana in 1998 and a merger with Quaker Oats in 2001, which also added the Gatorade brand to its portfolio as well. As of 2009, 19 of PepsiCo's product lines generated retail sales of more than $1 billion each, and the company’s products were distributed across more than 200......

Hop-in Food Stores, Inc.

...Hop-In Food Stores, Inc. Strategic Analysis Mr. Merriman faces the difficult decision in setting the price of the initial public offering for the new equity issue for Hop-In Food Stores, Inc. First to address is the problem with regards to over- or under-pricing the stock. Both outcomes yield negative attitudes towards the company. When addressing the possibility of over-pricing, the underwriter must understand that the stock may not sell the full amount of shares at the desired price, resulting in negative outlooks towards the corporation, as well as lowered stock prices of the insiders of Virginia, whom have already invested in the company. In order to remedy this, shelf-registration can be employed in order to reduce the amount of shares distributed initially, lowering costs of a secondary equity issue in the future, and possibly capturing the market once the share price hits a balance point. Also with over-pricing, there is the winner’s curse dilemma, in which the bidder finds remorse for spending such a great amount for a stock that others have not obviously intended to pay. Now, with under-pricing, though the immediate effects are not seen towards the company, this greatly hurts the shareholders. In under-pricing, the stock price may close the day much higher than initially sold, in which case that volume of cash between the initial price and closing price multiplied by the number of shares could have originally been sent to the previous shareholders of the company.......

Whole Foods Market, Inc. Financial Analysis

...Fall 2014 Accounting 501 Term Paper Whole Foods Market, Inc. Financial Analysis Whole Foods Market, Inc. Based in Texas December 2014 Executive Summary Whole Foods Market, Inc. has been in operation for over 30 years, and has since demonstrated a very successful business model that continues to benefit all stakeholders. When the first Whole Foods Market store opened in 1980, business owners John Mackey and Walter Robb had no idea they would become the 8th largest public food and drug retailer in the U.S., nor did they know at the time that they would soon rank #232 on the Fortune 500. In 2005, the firm hit a major milestone reporting six stores averaging roughly $1 million per week. Now they have more than 50 stores averaging at least $1 million or more. In 1985, the Declaration of Interdependence was crafted by 60 team members. The document was last updated in 1988, 1992, and 1997. The piece proclaims the party’s vision of instilling a clear sense of interdependence among various stakeholders, and validating the contingency upon their efforts in communicating more often, more openly, and more compassionately. The idea behind this concept is the fact that better communication in turn equals a greater understanding, and therefore more trust. Today food retailing is more competitive than ever with an ever-growing demand for fresh, healthy foods. However, Whole Foods’ industry-leading metrics complement their ability toward innovation and display of high...

A Financial Ratio Quarterly Trend Analysis of: Dell, Inc.

...Financial Trend Comparison For each of the five ratio categories: Liquidity, Asset Utilization, Profitability, Debt Utilization, and Market Values, write a paragraph regarding the trend and implications about the future financial health of the company. Liquidity: The company has very strong ratios helping the company to do well. Dell’s current ratio and quick ratio are at 1.47 and 1.40 respectably, this similarity between one and the other is a reflection of their very low inventory compared to the amount of sales that the company has, also influencing the net working capital ratio of only 0.23. At first sight the current liabilities to inventory ratio of 15 might seem a bit high, although the denominator of the current liability to inventory ratio is inventory and it is really low. It’s really hard to compare the company to the industry average because there is no other company that handles its inventory like Dell does. The company’s operation ratio expense is 12.64, way below compare to their industry do to their very low inventory. Assets Utilization: Asset utilization is vital to the success of an organization, the way assets are used within the organization is their biggest and strongest strategy making Dell a leader in its industry. A reflection of this strategy is their impressive inventory turnover ratio of 45.45. Unlike the industry average low numbers on the rest of the asset utilization ratios such as fixed assets turnover, total assets ratio......
