Unformatted text preview: • For “Net income” use income before irregular items. • Pfizer has both common and preferred equity. For ROCE, the denominator is common equity. “If it ain’t preferred, it’s common,” so simply subtract the preferred amount from total SE to get common SE. • For free cash flow, use total dividends paid per the SCF. • For ROCE use preferred dividends declared per the statement of SE (see the retained earnings column). • For the dividend payout rate, use common dividends declared per stmt of SE. • Year-end per share stock prices were \$23.32 (2005) and \$26.89 (2004). Common dividends per share were \$0.76 (2005) and \$0.68 (2004). • Use year-end amounts wherever a formula calls for an average. • Use total sales for credit sales. • Express all ratios as demonstrated in the text and in lecture.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
