I designed a project for a Financial Theory class that was designed to test their navigation skills within the Morningstar Investment Database. The ultimate goal of the project was not to test their analytical skills in deciphering the information presented in Morningstar, but more, being able to take that information and put it into a "flip-book" that they could present to investors.

Mutual Fund Analysis Final Project Financial Theory: BUSN 444 Objective: The overall objective of this project is to provide you with the tools to perform a fundamental analysis of a domestic equity mutual fund. We will not be focusing on ETFs and/or company stocks at this point.Using the techniques shown in class, select a 5-star, no-load, domestic equity mutual fund that fits your investment objective & risk tolerance. The basis for your analysis will be rooted in the information pertaining to the “3 C’s” of evaluating a mutual fund: Composition, Consistency, and Cost. In addition to this, you will also need to provide some fundamental information about the fund which will be listed below. You will be not be writing this as a paper, but rather building a few slides in Microsoft PowerPoint that should be set up in a “flip-book” format. An example of this will be shown in class. You should be able to include all the necessary information required in a fundamental analysis in 7 slides. Your ultimate grade will be determined by: 1) Completeness of overall product 2) Neatness and Organization 3) Inclusion of all necessary information 4) Rationale behind your recommendation 5) Overall Professionalism of project My hope is that by completing this project, you may also have something that is worth keeping in your personal portfolio when you go into future job interviews. This project should take you approximately 6 hours to do a satisfactory job. The 3 C’s: Composition: What is in the fund? Is it heavy in market sensitive, defensive, or cyclical stocks? What type of business sectors are the stocks in? What are the top 5 holdings within the fund? Consistency: What benchmark is your fund tracking with? What has the fund’s strategy been over the long run? What has performance been like? Over 1, 3, 5, 10 years? How has your fund been doing as compared to its benchmark and within its category? Cite the standard deviation and beta measures. What other types of inherent risks are coming along with this fund? Manager risk, strategy risk, style risk, investment risk, etc.

Cost: What is the overall minimum investment to invest in the fund? What is the expense percentage? Is there a load? Is there a redemption fee? Is there a 12b-1 fee? Why do you think there are additional costs, if any, that are associated with your fund? How would I set up this project? 1) Title Slide (1 slide) a. Name of Fund b. Ticker Symbol c. Name d. Brief explanation of why / how you selected this fund 2) Fund Information Slide (1 slide) a. Strategy of Fund b. Type of Fund (using the Morningstar Matrix) c. Total Assets under Management d.
