A company’s financial reports are used for various reasons, including determining how the company is doing in the financial market. You decide to evaluate the effects of economic and market conditions on the Fortune 500 company selected in week one. Completing this exercise provides you with financial market research to present to your management team to inspire new KPIs and policies.
Use the previous year’s financial reports research you completed in Week 3.

- Evaluate economic conditions that influence company performance. Consider political, environmental, currency (money), global economics, and government influences on economic conditions.

Conclude how the market conditions that year influenced the company’s performance, such as interest rates, Federal Reserve Bank monetary policy changes, or other market conditions relevant to the company you selected.
