Abstract

CDW Corporation, based in Lincolnshire, Illinois, has been in business for the past 30 years. Over the past five years, the company has gone public and acquired a United Kingdom-based company to expand its international commerce. As an IT re-seller and solution provider to small-, medium-, and large-sized businesses, CDW is able to create comparative advantages against its competition and increase market share. However, the increase in both scale and scope of its operations has come with a worrisome cost, added debt. As a result of our financial analysis for the suitability of an investment, our recommendation is to hold this stock if owned, not to purchase if interested.
