This week you begin work on a project that will be due week thirteen. Your task is to choose a publicly traded corporation for your project. By publicly traded it means that it must be listed on an exchange such as the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ. This is important because you will need the financial statements and notes for your company. This would be difficult to find for a private company which is not obligated to provide this information. If you are unsure if your company is publicly traded check on their website. In the “investor relations” section they will detail this information.
For your discussion board post please locate the latest annual report for a publicly traded corporation of your choice. Attach a link or copy of the annual report to your post. In your post describe what is found in an annual report. For example, what are the different sections that can be found in them from what you see? Lastly, be sure to locate the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. List in your post which pages you found these on.
Your initial response to the discussion question should be 250-300 words. You must have at least one course (our text) and one non-course scholarly/peer reviewed source in your initial posting. Sources require in-text citations and must be incorporated into the body of the post in addition to a full APA citation at the end of the post.
