Acct 1A Corporate Selection

 

 

You will be analyzing and comparing two competing corporations this semester. Before selecting a group below, go to the corporate homepages and be certain that you can find the Annual Reports. To do this, search for the corporation using Google Finance, and input the stock trading symbol provided. You will have a large amount of information, and specifically you want to go to the company homepage. Look at the lower right-hand corner of the Google Finance Webpage and the links to the corporate webpage will be provided. Once the homepage has been found, search for a link to Investor Relations or About the Company. Search for a link to Annual Report or Financial Statements, etc. You must find the report, NOT just the financial statements because you will need access to the Management Report, the Auditor's Report, Notes, etc. Finding the financial statements on financial sites is not adequate. Find the most recent Annual Report available and bookmark this page for future references. Often the reports or in .pdf format so you will need Adobe Reader (Adobe reader is available on all the computers on campus, and in addition you can down load for free from the Adobe corporation to your personal computer. Adobe Reader.
Once you have located the annual reports, and decided on the group you want to study this semester, you will need to sign up by the before the second week of the semester. The sign-up list will be available in the class.
