Please find the necessary information in the attached word file. I have chosen Wal-mart from the DJIA comapnies. I have used annual report 2008 to analyse the type and maturities of the debt instruments used by Walmart. Further I have compared capital structure ratios to industry average to assess whether Walmart is using an appropriate capital struture or not. I think as you have to write only 350 words, this much information should be sufficient.
Debt type Amount
Commercial Paper $ 5040 m
Long term debt due within one year 5913
Capital leases 3919
Long term debt 29799
The solution uses Wal-Mart for a 30 DJIA company to analyze debt instruments. A paper assessing whether or not this company is using appropriate capital structure is developed.
A. Develop a stem-and-leaf display
B. Use the stem-and-leaf display to answer the following questions:
? What does the grouping of the data in the stem-and-leaf display tell you about the prices per share for the 30 Dow Jones companies?
? What is the price-per-share range for the majority of the companies?
? How many companies have a price per share of $36?
? What is the most frequently appearing price per share?
? What should be considered a relatively high price per share? What percentage of the companies has a price per share in this range? Which companies have a price per share in this range, and what is the price per share for each?
C. Use the Wall Street Journal or another business applications such as the internet to find the current price per share for each of the 30 Dow Jones Industrial Average companies. Construct a stem-and-leaf display for these data and use the display to comment on any changes in the prices per share since April 2004.
