On January 1 of the current year, MuniServ began operations with $100,000 cash. The cash was obtained from an owner investment by Peter Houston of $70,000 and a $30,000 bank loan. Shortly thereafter, the company ac­quired selected assets of a bankrupt competitor. The acquisition included land ($15,000), a building ($40,000), and vehicles ($10,000). MuniServ paid $45,000 at the time of the transaction and agreed to remit the remaining balance due of $20,000 (an account payable) by February 15.

 

During January, the company had additional cash outlays for the follow­ing items:

 

Purchases of store equipment

$4,600

Loan payment, including $100 interest

500

Salaries expense

2,300

Advertising expense

Discussions
To participate in the following discussions, go to this week's


Discussion link in the left navigation.



  1. 1. LIFO vs. FIFO

    The controller of Sagehen Enterprises believes that the company should switch from the LIFO method to the FIFO method. The controller’s bonus is based on the next income. It is the controller’s belief that the switch in inventory methods would increase the net income of the company. What are the differences between the LIFO and FIFO methods?

    Guided Response:
    Analyze several of your peers’ posts. Let at least two of your peers know if a company is better off it switches from a LIFO method to a FIFO method? Explain your reasoning.

  2. 2. Depreciation

    A variety of depreciation methods are used to allocate the cost of an asset to all of the accounting periods benefited by the use of the asset. Your client has just purchased a piece of equipment for $100,000. Explain the concept of depreciation. Which of the following depreciation methods would you recommend: straight-line depreciation, double declining balance method, or an alternative method?

    Guided Response:
    Let at least two of your peers know if a company would use an accelerated depreciation method for their financial statements or their tax returns. Why do you believe this would be the case?


 





3. Journal
To complete the following journal entry, go to this week's Journal link in the left navigation.


Inventory Journal

Reflect for a moment on the LIFO (Last in First Out) and FIFO (First in First Out) inventory methods. If you were starting a small manufacturing company, what inventory method do you believe would provide the most accurate financial statements? Why do you believe this is the case?

Do you need the answer to above 2 questions (1. LIFO vs. FIFO and 2. Depreciation) only or 1-8 posted earlier or both?

The steps in preparation of financial analysis report include the following: Select a publicly held company Select a benchmark firm to compare your company against. The benchmark firm is typically the largest competitor. Obtain the firm's balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows for the past 5 years. Download or read the firm's annual report. Go to: http://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/webusers.htm. Research EDGAR's database for additional SEC report filings: 8-k, 10-Q. The following table is the type of Excel or Word table that should be used to gather and report your ratio and financial performance data. Note the 5 financial diagnostic categories that should be used in your analysis. Financial Diagnostic Categories Chosen Company vs. Benchmark Competitor 1. Liquidity of Short-Term Assets Current Ratio Cash Ratio Quick Ratio Current Ratio Cash Ratio Quick Ratio 2. Long-Term Debt-paying Ability Debt Ratio Debt-equity Ratio Times Interest Earned Debt Ratio Debt-equity Ratio Times Interest Earned 3. Profitability Net Income / Sales (Profit Margin) Net Income / Assets (ROA) Net Income / Shareholder Equity (ROE) Net Income / Sales (Profit Margin) Net Income / Assets (ROA) Net Income / Shareholder Equity (ROE) 4. Asset Utilization / Management Efficiency Total Asset Turnover Inventory Turnover Measures Accounts Receivable Turnover Total Asset Turnover Inventory Turnover Measures Accounts Receivable Turnover 5.

Place your ratio calculations in the table for your selected companies—primary company and benchmark competitor. Using 5 diagnostic categories, and 3 ratios to assess each category, results in 15 ratio measures per company that will be compared side by side. To validate your research, 5 years of data should be analyzed. The financial analysis report must be written properly. They must include a title page, a table of contents, and a reference page. For the final report, information sources from the web, etc. must be cited properly, using APA style. This means that every table that you cut and pasted or typed from the web must have a source at the bottom of the table AND that citing must also be included in a reference page at the end of the report. The parts of the research paper are discussed below. Your project should include: An overview of the corporation. Provide general information regarding the type of business, products and/or services, location of headquarters, name of CEO, number of employees, and countries of operation, etc. The latest financial statements Get the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement, and the statement of owners' equity for the past fiscal year.

A summary of each financial statement Take each statement and state the key parts in words. Tell a story from each of the financial statements. For example, for the income statement, the story starts like, “Total Revenues in 2010 were $10 billion, while Cost of Goods Sold were $8 billion, leaving a gross profit margin of $2 billion, or 20 percent of total revenues….After taking out interest and taxes from EBIT, the net income was $0.5 billion, or 5 percent of total revenues.” Ratio calculation (include 5 major types of ratios.
