3 Project Two BetNet Stock Club Needed: An easy to read worksheet that summarizes the club's investments For each stock, the worksheet is to include the name, symbol, date acquired, number of shares, initial price, initial cost, current price, current value, gain/loss, and percent gain/loss. Michael also has requested that the worksheet include totals and the average, highest value, and lowest value for each column of numbers. Source of Data: The data supplied by Michael includes the stock names, symbols, dates acquired, number of shares, initial prices, and current prices. This data is shown in Table 2 1. Calculations: The following calculations must be made for each of the stocks: 1. Initial Cost = Shares x Initial Price 2. Current Value = Shares x Current Price 3. Gain/Loss = Current Value Initial Cost 4. Percentage Gain/Loss = Gain/Loss Initial Cost 5. Compute the totals for initial cost, current value, and gain/loss. 6. Use the AVERAGE function to determine the average for the number of shares, initial price per share, initial stock cost, current stock price, current stock value, and gain/loss for each stock. 7. Use the MAX and MIN functions to determine the highest and lowest values for the number of shares, initial price per share, initial stock cost, current stock price, current stock value, gain/loss for each stock, and percent gain/loss. Entering the Titles and Numbers into the Worksheet Because the centered text first must be entered into the leftmost column of the area across which it is centered, it will be entered into cell A1. Enter the Worksheet Title 1. Select cell A1. Type BetNet Stock Club in the cell. 2. Press the DOWN ARROW key. The worksheet title displays in cell A1. The stock club's investments are summarized in Table 2 1. These numbers are entered into rows 3 through 10. Table 2 1 BetNet Stock Club Portfolio Stock Symbol Acquired Shares Initial Price Current Price Amazon.com AMZN 10/14/ America Online AOL 12/14/ Broadcast.com BCST 2/2/ EarthLink ELNK 3/1/ ebay EBAY 4/13/ Infoseek SEEK 2/12/ UBid UBID 12/21/ Yahoo YHOO 5/12/ Page 3 of 32

4 Enter the Column Titles 1. With cell A2 active, type Stock and then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 2. Type Symbol and then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 3. Type Date & then press ALT+ENTER. Type Acquired & then press the RIGHT arrow key. 4. Type Shares & then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 5. Type Initial & then press ALT+ENTER. Type Price and then press the RIGHT arrow key. 6. Type Initial & then press ALT+ENTER. Type Cost & then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 7. Type Current & then press ALT+ENTER. Type Price & then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 8. Type Current & then press ALT+ENTER. Type Value & then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 9. Type Gain/Loss & press the RIGHT ARROW key. 10. Type % Gain/Loss & then click cell A3. The column titles display as shown in row 2 of Figure 2 1. When you press ALT+ENTER to add more lines to a cell, Excel automatically increases the height of the entire row. The stock data in Table 2 1 includes a date on which each stock was acquired. Excel considers a date to be a number and, therefore, displays it right aligned in the cell. When you enter a date, Excel automatically formats the date so it resembles the way you entered it. For example, if you enter May 20, 1999, Excel displays it as 20 May 99. If you enter the same date in the format 5/20/99, then Excel displays it as 5/20/99. The following steps describe how to enter the stock data shown in Table 2 1, which includes dates. Enter the Stock Data 1. With cell A3 selected, type Amazon.com and then press the right ARROW key. Type AMZN and then press the RIGHT arrow key. 2. With cell C3 selected, type 10/14/97 and then press the RIGHT arrow key. Type 800 and then press the RIGHT ARROW key. 3. With cell E3 selected, type and then press the RIGHT ARROW key twice. Type 331 and then press the ENTER key. 4. Click cell A4. Enter the data in Table 2 1 for the seven remaining stocks in rows 4 through 10. The stock data displays in rows 3 through 10 as shown in Figure 2 1. Page 4 of 32

5 Enter the Total Row Titles 1. Click cell A11. Type Total and then press the DOWN ARROW key. With cell A12 selected, type Average and then press the down arrow key. 2. With cell A13 selected, type Highest and then press the down ARROW key. With cell A14 selected, type Lowest and then press the ENTER key. Click cell F3. The total row titles display as shown in Figure 2 1. Figure 2 1 Entering Formulas The initial cost for each stock, which displays in column F, is equal to the number of shares in column D times the initial price in column E. Thus, the initial cost for Amazon.com in row 3 is obtained by multiplying 800 (cell D3) times (cell E3). If you enter a formula in cell F3 to multiply the values in cells D3 and E3, Excel recalculates the product whenever new values are entered into those cells and displays the result in cell F3. Complete the following steps to enter the formula using the keyboard. Enter a Formula Using the Keyboard 1. With cell F3 selected, type =d3*e3 in the cell. The formula displays in the formula bar and in cell F3 (Figure 2 2). Figure 2 2 Page 5 of 32

6 2. Press the RIGHT ARROW key twice to select cell H3. Instead of displaying the formula in cell F3, Excel completes the arithmetic operation indicated by the formula and displays the result, (Figure 2 3). Figure 2 3 Table 2 2 Summary of Arithmetic Operators Arithmetic Meaning Example Meaning Operator of Usage Negation 10 Negative 10 % Percentage =30% Multiples 30 by 0.01 ^ Exponentiation =2^3 Raises 2 to the third power, which in this example is equal to 8 * Multiplication =6.1 * A1 Multiples the contents of cell A1 by 6.1 / Division =H3 / H5 Divides the contents of cell H3 by the contents of cell H5 + Addition =4 + 8 Adds 4 and 8 Subtraction =D34 35 Subtracts 35 from the contents of cell D34 You can enter the cell references in formulas in uppercase or lowercase, and you can add spaces before and after arithmetic operators to make the formulas easier to read. That is, =d3*e3 is the same as =d3 * e3, =D3 * e3, or =D3 * E3. Page 6 of 32

7 Order of Operations When more than one operator is involved in a formula, Excel follows the same basic order of operations that you use in algebra. Moving from left to right in a formula, the order of operations is as follows: first negation ( ), then all percentages (%), then all exponentiations ( ^ ), then all multiplications (*) and divisions (/), and finally, all additions (+) and subtractions ( ). You can use parentheses to override the order of operations. For example, if Excel follows the order of operations, 10*6 3 equals 57. If you use parentheses, however, to change the formula to 10 * (6 3), the result is 30, because the parentheses instruct Excel to subtract 3 from 6 before multiplying by 10. Table 2 3 illustrates several examples of valid formulas and explains the order of operations. Table 2 3 Examples of Excel Formulas Formula Remark =F6 Assigns the value in cell F6 to the active cell. =6 + 3^2 Assigns the sum of (or 15) to the active cell. =2 * K4 or =K4 * 2 or Assigns two times the contents of cell K4 to the active cell. =(2 * K4) =50 /o*16 Assigns the product of 0.5 times 16 (or 8) to the active cell. = (J12*S23) Assigns the negative value of the product of the values contained in cells J12 and S23 to the active cell. =5*(L14 H3) Assigns the product of five times the difference between the values contained in cells H3 and LI 4 to the active cell. =D1/X6 A3*A4 + A5^A6 From left to right: first exponentiation (A5 A A6), then division (Dl / X6), then multiplication (A3 * A4), then subtraction (Dl / X6) (A3 * A4), and finally addition (Dl / X6 A3 * A4) + (A5 A A6). If cells Dl = 10, A3 = 6, A4 = 2, A5 = 5, A6 = 2, and X6 = 2, then Excel assigns the active cell the value 18 (10 / 2 6 * A 2 = 18). Entering Formulas Using Point Mode Point mode allows you to select cells for use in a formula by using the mouse. Enter Formulas Using Point Mode 1. With cell H3 selected, type = (equal sign) to begin the formula and then click cell D3. Excel surrounds cell D3 with a marquee and appends D3 to the equal sign (=) in cell H3 (Figure 2 4). Figure 2 4 Page 7 of 32

8 2. Type * (asterisk) and then click cell G3. Excel surrounds cell G3 with a marquee and appends G3 to the asterisk (*) in cell H3 (Figure 2 5). Figure Click the Enter box. Click cell 13. Type (equal sign) and then click cell H3. Type (minus sign) and then click cell F3. Excel determines the product of =D3*G3 and displays the result , in cell H3. The formula =H3 F3 displays in cell I3 and in the formula bar (Figure 2 6). 4. Click the Enter box. Click cell J3. Type = (equal sign) and then click cell I3. Type / (division sign) and then click cell F3. Click the Enter box. The Gain/Loss for Amazon.com, , displays in cell I3 and the % Gain/Loss for Amazon.com, , displays in cell J3 (Figure 2 7). The represents % =I3/F3 Page 8 of 32

9 Copy Formulas Using the Fill Handle 1. Click cell F3 and then point to the fill handle. Drag the fill handle down through cell F10 and continue to hold down the mouse button. A border surrounds the copy and paste areas (range F3:F10) and the mouse pointer changes to a cross hair (Figure 2 8). 2. Release the mouse button. Select the range H3:J3 and then point to the fill handle. Excel copies the formula =D3*E3 to the range F4:F10 and displays the initial costs for the remaining seven stocks. The range H3:J3 is selected (Figure 2 9). 3. Drag the fill handle down through the range H4:J10. Excel copies the three formulas =D3*G3 in cell H3, =H3 F3 in cell I3, and =I3/F3 in cell J3 to the range H4:J10 and displays the current value, gain/loss, and percentage gain/loss for the remaining seven stocks (Figure 2 10). If you copy downward, Excel adjusts the row portion of cell references. If you copy across, then Excel adjusts the column portion of cell references. These cell references are called relative references. Page 9 of 32

10 Determine Totals Using the AutoSum Button 1. Select cell F11. Click the AutoSum button twice. (Do not double click.) 2. Select the range H11:I11. Click the AutoSum button. The three totals display in row 11 as shown in Figure Rather than using the AutoSum function to calculate column totals individually, you can select all three cells before clicking the AutoSum button to calculate all three column totals at one time. Determine the Total Percentage Gain/Loss 1. Select cell J10 and then point to the fill handle. 2. Drag the fill handle down through cell J11. Note: The formula, =I10/F10, is copied to cell J11. The resultant formula in cell J11 is =I11/F11, which shows a total club gain on the club's, holdings of or % (Figure 2 12). Note: A blank cell in Excel has a numerical value of zero. Page 10 of 32

11 Determine the Average of a Range Using Keyboard/Mouse 1. Select cell D12. Type =average( in the cell. Click cell D3, the first endpoint of the range to average. Drag through cell D10, the second endpoint of the range to average (Figure 2 13). 2. Click the Enter box. Excel computes the average of the eight numbers in the range D3:D10 and displays the result, 675, in cell D12 (Figure 2 14). Thus, the average number of shares owned in the eight companies is 675. Page 11 of 32

12 Determine the Highest Number in a Number Range 1. Select cell D13. Click the Edit Formula box in the formula bar. Click the Functions box arrow and then point to MAX. 2.

24 Conditional Formatting Excel lets you apply formatting that appears only when the value in a cell meets conditions that you specify. This type of formatting is called conditional formatting. You can apply conditional formatting to a cell, a range of cells, the entire worksheet, or the entire workbook. Usually, you apply it to a range of cells that contains values you want to highlight if conditions warrant. For example, you can instruct Excel to bold and change the color of the background of a cell if the value in the cell meets a condition, such as being less than zero. For example, assume you assign the range J3:J10 the following condition: Condition Cell value is less than 0 Value 1 relational operator value 2 A condition, which is made up of two values and a relational operator, is true or false for each cell in the range. If the condition is true, then Excel applies the formatting. If the condition is false, then Excel suppresses the formatting. What makes conditional formatting so powerful is that the cell's appearance can change as you enter new values in the worksheet. Apply Conditional Formatting 1. Select the range J3:J10. Click Format on the menu bar and then point to Conditional Formatting. (Figure 2 43). Page 24 of 32

25 2. Click Conditional Formatting. If necessary, click the leftmost text box arrow and then click Cell Value is. Click the middle text box arrow and then click less than.

Click the Patterns tab. Click the color red (column 1, row 3). Click the OK button (Figure 2 45). 4. When the Conditional Formatting dialog box displays, point to the OK button. The Conditional Formatting dialog box displays as shown in Figure Page 25 of 32

26 5. Click the OK button, Click cell A16 to deselect the range J3:J10. Excel assigns the conditional format to the range J3:J10. Any negative value in this range displays in bold with a red background (Figure 2 47). The middle text box in the Conditional Formatting dialog box contains the relational operator. The eight different relational operators from which you can choose are summarized in Table 2 4. Table 2 4 Summary of Conditional Formatting Relational Operator Description Between Cell value is between two numbers Not Between Cell value is not between two numbers Equal to Cell value is equal to a number Not equal to Cell value is not equal to a number Greater than Cell value is greater than a number Less than Cell value is less than a number Greater than or equal to Cell value is greater than or equal to a number Less than or equal to Cell value is less than or equal to a number Page 26 of 32
