financial websites for quoting the financial ratios
Focal Company: Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MRK)
For your focal company’s financial ratios, you cannot use just any financial websites for quoting the financial ratios for the focal company. The only reference source is the focal company’s website or 10K information.
You must drill down to the focal company’s website in locating the “raw” financial ratio (that is, the income statement and balance sheet, or annual investor report), and use these financial data to compute the financial ratios on your own by showing the actual financial data in all the financial ratio computation formulae. In other words, show the actual math of computing the focal company’s financial ratios on your own, not “cutting and pasting” them from anywhere else.
