PART 1

OBTAINING THE ANNUAL REPORT

Obtain the most recent annual reports of two U.S. corporations which are Fortune 500 companies and are traded on a national stock exchange (NYSE, NASDAQ). You will obtain two annual reports so that you will have an alternate if you are unable to use your first choice.

The easiest way to obtain annual reports is to download them from the company Web site. A useful resource is fortune.com. This site provides links to the Web sites of Fortune 500 companies. To obtain an already printed copy of the annual report, if time permits, contact the company’s Investor Relations department.

Do not select a public utility, financial institution or brokerage firm, insurance company, co-operative or government entity. In addition, please note that summary annual reports are not acceptable.

OTHER USEFUL SOURCES ARE:



  • The Public Register’s Annual Report Service (www.prars.com) (800-4-ANNUAL)

  • www.annualreports.com

  • finance.yahoo.com


1. Choosing a company

Choose companies in which you are interested. Perhaps the company has been featured in the news lately. Perhaps you own stock in the company. Perhaps you would like to own stock in the company. If you want to look at a list of possibilities, find a copy of the April issue of Fortune magazine which lists the Fortune 500 or try www.fortune.com

2. Download your annual report and answer the following questions.

Names of companies chosen: (Remember that you will conduct a thorough analysis of one of the companies. Please list the companies in the order of your preference.)

Company Fortune 500 Rank

The assignment is too lengthy, what I have understood that you need all questions answwered for both companies, therefore the fair price for each company is $175. And it is better that I will work on one by one, so you can see that answers are according to need or not. Please mention your deadine, for company number one, thanks.
