Write your paper, in your own words, using accounting words from our textbook and explaining how these relate to the financial statements of your company
Review the company's MD&A as well as financial statements and the accompanying footnotes. Use this information to prepare your "analytic" results. You may want to seek additional background and comparative data on the business. Yahoo Finance has a "competitors" feature we will discuss in class.
The content of your paper should focus on accounting issues and include words used in our accounting class, including financial accounting as well as managerial accounting. An example would be a discussion on inventory: how it is valued, whether there is a WIP account, and other details you learned this semester.
Use terms from our class and create displays using the SEC 10-K for your company. The use of headings will label the sections in your paper. You should present inventory turnover, days sales in inventory, days sales in accounts receivable, and other financial analysis from our course, both for the current year and as they relate to changes in accounts from one year to the next. Your goal is to explain the financial statements and the information of the SEC 10-K with the knowledge you learn from our class. While not explaining every item in the SEC 10-K, your paper should tell a story and illustrate your mastery of accounting terms and concepts. No more than one page should be devoted to your company's history and non-financial information.
