complete a brief paper on any topic covered in this course.
You should:
Cite the textbook and at least three articles from legitimate periodicals on the topic. Web sites generally do NOT qualify.
Discuss implications of these for a specific firm of your choice (e.g., Hewlett-Packard, Walmart, or Marriott Hotels).
The paper should focus on how management of the firm can use the ideas in question—NOT on what the firm is currently doing.
Quality is important than quantity, and people differ in their writing styles, but a length of 4-5 pages double-spaced (not including the biographical listing) is generally reasonable.

Let’s assume you have $1,000 to invest. You
need to identify a company that you would like to invest in using that
$1000. Choose early, because only 1 student is allowed to invest in
each stock. Use a finance site such as Yahoo to get the following information
about your stock:

Write
down 3 reasons why you want to purchase this stock
52
Week Low and 52 Week High for the stock
Date
that you are making your investment, and the current stock price on the

The
number of shares you are able to purchase with your $1000 (include partial
share amounts)
You should write your post in paragraph form, using
full and grammatically correct sentences. Failure to include any of the above
items will result in a 1 point deduction from your assignment grade for each
item not included. Your post should incorporate the use of the Pick analysis and
make a connection to course concepts.

Course text: Economic Parables By
David Cowan,
**YOU MUST HAVE ACCESS TO THIS TEXT AND INCLUDE A REFERENCE TO
IT FROM CHAPTER 7**
INCLUDE INFORMATION FROM CHAPTER 7
Prompt quuestions (choose 2):
• How do you define wealth? How do you feel about your wealth and how you acquire it?
• Is consumerism a bad thing? Do you see a difference between consumerism and consumption?
• When does our attitude toward wealth and consuming create a barrier between us and God?
• As part of faithful discipleship, how should we change our ideas about wealth? Can you name three things you could change today? If so, how could you change them?
• Do you worry too much about paying your bills and about your job security? Is it tempting to think you are at the mercy of economic forces beyond your control—beyond even God’s control?
• Is it possible for a Christian to be rich and a good disciple? Is there a threshold of wealth that a Christian cannot cross?
• Do you think it is more difficult to be a disciple in today’s economy than in the economy of Jesus’ time? What differences are there between the two situations?
• Do you think churches and theologians are too negative about globalization and the free enterprise system? What should they be telling people with plenty of money?

our analysis should be based on fundamental analysis, current events, industry trends and your own opinions. You must also
electronically submit a working financial model in Excel for your firm, since this is one of the primary
goals of the class. The bulk of the grade will be based on content, but your paper should also be well
written and look professional. You should supplement your report with charts and tables to support your
case.

I would like you to prepare a cap (capitalisation) table (I’d assume in Excel, but if you prefer something else, no problem with me) for a fundraising round of an imaginary company, Eastern Promises Inc. This company was founded by 2 co-founders, Joe and Bob, each having a 50% equity stake, and they also agreed on creating an option pool (ESOP) for their employees amounting to 10% of the company. The current shareholding thus is Joe 45%, Bob 45% and ESOP 10% (altogether represented by 1,000,000 shares). Joe and Bob agreed with a new investor, The Rocketship Fund, on a $5 million investment round (out of which $4M shall be provided by Rocketship and the remaining $1M shall be split 50/50 by the two existing investors (SAFE holders, see below)) at a $30M pre-money valuation. The company also has 2 outstanding SAFEs (attached), which are going to convert into equity as part of the above-mentioned equity round. The Rocketship Fund also insists on the ESOP’s expansion so that it again represents ~10% equity of the company post the equity round’s completion – this ESOP expansion will take place after the equity round (and will thus dilute everyone). Please send me a cap table showing your thought process & the resulting equity stakes (shares & percentage) of everyone.
I need the table to look as simply as possible and I also need to see notes with thought process! Everything you do/calculate I need to see it clearly explained.
