Research Project (finance)
I would like you to find TWO recent (nothing earlier than August 2018, and preferably very recent) news stories that relate to material we have covered in this course. For each story, either paste the link or write the title of the article (you do not need to write a formal bibliography), and then provide no more than three paragraphs (and preferably just one to two) on how the article related to the course. You can also add some additional information (see what this means in the example I give below when I write “I learned in class that…….”). The stories
should cover different topics: in other words, do not send me three stories on the bond market. Once again, see a small sample assignment below.
TIPS: The best source is probably the Wall Street Journal or Bloomberg, but any source is good. Many stories in the Wall Street Journal are not available for free. There are two ways to access them:
1. Google the exact title of the story. Sometimes other sites pick up the story and present it in full.
2. Use the online tool at the FAU library. Follow these steps (note: if you are doing this off campus, at
some point you will need to enter in your OWL Card number or MyFAU login information). By the
way, if you are on campus, the physical library has paper copies of the Wall Street Journal and New
York Times that you can look through.
a. Go to fau.edu
b. Click “Current Students”
c. Click Library
d. Click Electronic Journals
e. Type in Wall Street Journal
f. Click the first link under the fourth category “Wall Street Journal. Eastern Edition”
g. Towards the bottom, there is something that says Browse specific Issues. Click 2010 to 2015.
Then keep clicking until you get to the most recent issues. Browse the title of the stories and
then click on something you like.
3. Another source is the CFO Journal. Just google “CFO Journal”. Other
