FIN 5405 - Course Project OEM 2009 Program Luther Setzer The purposes of the project are to (1) make students familiar with online services and financial databases that allow individuals to research and better understand the financial aspects of a company, and (2) help students learn about the difficulties of extending financial theory and data to real world applications. The first part of the course project will familiarize students with a number of services and databases. The second part will require students to actually use financial data to analyze such things as a firm’s cost of capital, its economic value added, the fairness of its stock price, and whether the stock is currently a reasonable investment. Your first step is to download this document to your personal computer. Answers to the following questions/activities should then be posted directly to the Word Document that has been saved to your personal computer ( I suggest that you use a different font color for your answers, or highlight in some manner, to make it easier for me to distinguish your answers form the original document and grade your assignment ). As a student at the University of Florida, you have free access to many of the online services that usually require a subscription. However, you will either need to access these services through a Library-related computer, or go through a “Proxy Server” using your GatorLink account username and password. To access the online Business Library section of the Smathers Library, go to http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/cm/business/ On the right of the top line, click on Remote Logon. This will take you to a page that allows you to connect to on-campus services using the Library Proxy Server: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/ufproxy.html At the top left of the screen, fill in your GatorLink Account Username and Password, and then click Login. This will take you back to the UF Library page: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu.lp.hscl.ufl.edu/ufproxysuccess.html At the top/middle left of the page click the drop-down arrow for “UF Smathers Libraries” and choose, “Business Library” This takes you back to the Business Library main page, but using the Proxy Server: http://web.uflib.ufl.edu.lp.hscl.ufl.edu/cm/business/ FIN 5405 - OEM 2009 Program - Course Project Page 1 of 39 Pages

All answers should be added to this file after each (or part of each) of the questions/activities.

    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.
