#### Solution Preview

Requirement 1:
Compute the following profitability measures for the year ended December 27, 2008:

(a) Return on investment, based on net income (perform a DuPont analysis). (Do not round intermediate calculations and round final answer to 1 decimal place. Omit the "%" sign in your response.)

ROI %

ROI = Net income/((Total Assets at 12/27/08 + Total Assets at 12/29/07)/2)
ROI = \$5,292/((\$50,715 + \$55,651)/2)
ROI = \$5,292/(\$106,366/2)
ROI = \$5,292/\$53,183
ROI = 9.95%

ROE %
ROE = Net income/((Total Equity at 12/27/08 + Total Equity at 12/29/07)/2)
ROI = \$5,292/((\$39,088 + \$42,762)/2)
ROI = \$5,292/(\$81,850/2)
ROI = \$5,292/\$40,925
ROI = 12.93%

(c) Price/earnings ratio. Use \$14.18 as the year-end market price. (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)

Price/earnings ratio
Price/earnings ratio = Price per share/Basic earnings per share
Price/earnings ratio = \$14.18/\$.93
Price/earnings ratio = 15.25

Dividend yield %
Dividend yield = Annual dividend/Price per share
Dividend yield = (\$.14 + \$.14 +\$.14+ \$.1275)/\$14.18
Dividend yield = \$.5475/\$14.18
Dividend yield = 3.86 percent

Dividend payout ratio %
Dividend payout ratio = Dividend per share/Earnings per share
Dividend payout ratio = \$.5475/\$.93
Dividend payout ratio = 58.87 percent
Requirement 2:
Compute the following liquidity measures at December 27, 2008:
...
