Obtain the most recent annual report for the two companies that your group has chosen. The reports should contain at least three (3) years of income statement data and two (2) years of balance sheet data.
Analyze at least 3 (three) items on the income statement for each company that would be important to an investor and or user of the financial information, and discuss whether each company’s performance related to these items appeared to be improving, deteriorating, or remaining stable over the two years. Justify your answer.

Justify your answer.
Analyze each company’s investing and financing activities for the most recent year as identified in the statement of cash flows, specifically identifying the two largest investing activities and the two largest financing activities. Discuss whether you agree or disagree with the investing and financing strategies that each company appears to be employing.
Identify 2 (two) items not included in (or derived from) the financial statements that you think would be important to someone considering whether to invest in each company. Discuss your reasons for believing that these two items about the company would be important in making an investment decision. (Hint: you might want to consider items discussed in other business classes.)
Compare the results you obtained above for both companies. Based on the analysis done by your group on the financial statements, if you were making a decision to invest in one of the two companies, which company would you choose? Why? (Note: your answer in this section must include some financial issues, but your answer need not be limited to a discussion of financial issues.)
You must submit the entire annual report for each company being discussed. (these can be submitted in electronic format)
Your analysis must include page references to relevant portions of the annual reports, and the relevant portions of the annual reports must be highlighted. Your report must also contain appropriate quotation marks for quoted material and appropriate references for material taken from sources outside the financial statements.
Your analysis (body of the report, excluding Title page, Table of Content, References and Attachments) is limited to 6 to 10 (six to ten) pages, and must be typed, double-spaced, and have at least a 12-point font. (This report should be submitted electronically via Canvas in Excel, Word and or pdf format.)

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
