  1. Recommendation (2-5 pages)

Your client wants to invest $250,000 in a computer industry company’s common stock. It is your job to provide them a recommendation for purchasing or not purchasing your company’s common stock.

Their goal is to keep the investment for five years with the expectation that the stock price will increase in order to make a minimum average of 9% return annually over the five-year period.

In other words, there could be a projected return of less than 9% one year, but could be offset by a return of greater than 9% in another year. So take the overall predicted returns and divide by five to arrive at the average annual return you predict.

A.) Identify your company’s current price per share and how many shares your client would purchase for $250,000. Do not buy partial shares.

B.) Using your company’s five-year stock market price graph, make a prediction of their stock price for the next five years.

You can use Trend Analysis that is explained in Chapter 13. Show your computations!

Use a table or line graph to show your predictions visually and explain why.

C.) Include any dividends they would potentially receive during the five-year investment.

You can find your company’s dividend policy in their annual report. Include this policy in your answer.

Use a table or line graph to show your predictions visually and explain why.

D.) Do you recommend that this company you have analyzed is worthy of consideration for your client’s investment portfolio?

Include justification for your recommendation using the information gathered above and also using what you learned in SWOT and industry trends.

Use your ratios and SWOT to support your decisions, show what you have truly learned through this project.

Do you want to continue working for this client as their investment advisory team? If so, you need to be clear, concise, and confident!
