When someone decides to invest into a company there are many things that need to be interpreted beforehand. Financial analysis ratios are one of the most important determinates. Whether an investor decides to invest short-term or long-term will determine what ratios the investor should look at most closely. Our investment group has chosen to make a short-term investment, resulting in the focus on the debt to equity ratio, return on assets ratio, quick ratio and gross profit ratio. The information that these ratios provide us help us justify our decision to invest in the Lockheed Martin Corporation and not the Northrop Grumman Corporation. As a group of potential investors we feel as though a short-term investment in Lockheed Martin would be both safer and more profitable. The information about each ratio given above helped us to come to this conclusion and feel more confident about Lockheed Martin’s future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
