Discuss the use of ratios in analyzing financial statements. What are the benefits of using the ratios discussed in your text when analyzing the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement of an organization?

Write a 3 page paper discussing the use of ratios in analyzing financial statements. What are the benefits of using the ratios discussed in your text when analyzing the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement of an organization? If you had to choose two key ratios to analyze a company in your chosen industry (Medtronic company, or any company in healthcare field), which two would best serve your purposes, and why? Determine which two specific ratios will give you the most important information for your analysis, and create a heading in your paper for each ratio. Use specific ratios, not ratio categories. For example, explain the inventory turnover ratio, not “asset management ratios.” Identify which statement provided you with the numbers for each ratio and explain how the ratio was calculated (e.g. “divide the cost of goods sold, found on the income statement by the inventory, found on the balance sheet”). What would you hope to learn about a company based on these ratios? What are the dangers of overanalyzing using ratio analysis? What additional information is important to consider in addition to the information gleaned from ratios?
Please use and cite at least three sources, one of which may be the textbook, using correct APA format. This paper should be written exclusively in the third person.
