For our first discussion, I have chosen the company Apple Inc. Apple is a company that everyone
knows about in the US and other countries. There is most likely some apple device in almost all
households today. Apple Inc. It manufactures computers, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches,
and computer software.

The profit margin ratio is when the sales percentage becomes a profit for the company. If the
yield is high, it shows that your business is doing well and can pay for itself and then some. To
calculate the profit margin ratio, you must divide net income by net sales.

percent. This could be due to many reasons, but it was primarily due to sales.
In the discussion for this company, the pandemic was the topic of conversation and how it
affected the company. However, what was done to help with it? Stores were closed temporarily,
and individuals were forced to work remotely. The company continued to move forward.

company is positive and will remain firm. They were causing Apple to be a good company in all
standings. If I were asked to rate this company and give my thoughts, I would say that the
company is in an excellent situation. Furthermore, we will continue to move forward positively
with the new products and their software continuing to get better. I say this is a positive
