Suggestions for anlaysing the stock:

1: What is the definition of energy stock & which are the energy stocks listed on the ASX. Choose one stock.

Key Points you could cover in doing a SWOT analysis on the stock:

  • i:Are you confident that you understand what the company does? Do you believe its customers will continue to want its products or services for years to come? 

  • ii: Over the past five years, have the company’s sales and profits grown steadily? Are profits growing as fast as, or faster than, turnover? 

  • iii:Are earnings per share growing steadily, in line with sales and profits? Or are there extreme peaks and troughs in the EPS graph that are likely to recur? 

  • iv: Are the people who run the company doing their job well? Are they producing a good return on funds employed? what is the track record of senior executives? Which industries have they worked in before? What are their past success stories? 

  • v: Has the stock weathered the economic crisis?

  • vi: Look at the financial indicators for the stock? Price range of the stock in the last 52 weeks? EPS, DPS, Dividend Yield, Capital Growth, Takeovers, Mergers, Sector comparisons?
