Question
Choose a publicly traded company that you are familiar with, and reserve the name on the discussion board. Please note that there should be no duplication of companies. Hence, the first posting will be the one graded, and any duplicate postings will result in a grade of 0.

Go to the selected company’s website and look at their annual report (10k). If you prefer, you may also go to the Securities Exchange Commission’s EDGAR database and download the annual report. Review the annual report, paying particular attention to the financial statements and the notes to the financial statements. How are their financial statements similar and different from those presented in the text? Describe the differences, if any, and explain why you believe the differences exist. As a potential investor, what areas do you think you should be most concerned with, if any, based upon the notes? Assuming you had unlimited funds, would this be a company you would invest in? Why or why not? Your thread must be at least 400 words and include 2 peer-reviewed references.
