ACC 616 Walmart Annual Report Project Worksheet
For this assignment, combine the Annual Report Project from Weeks 1 and 3, along with the following additional requirements:
- Calculate the Current, Debt/Equity, and Inventory Turnover ratios for WALMART.
- Locate a competitor that is involved in the same business as WALMART. Provide an analysis of the same ratios calculated above. What do these ratios tell you? Is the company you have chosen performing better or worse based upon these ratios?
- Compare and contrast the GAAP, IFRS, and tax issues that WALMART and the competitor face.
- Read the article, “A Blueprint for Digital Companies’ Financial Reporting,” provided in the study materials. Discuss any “drivers” that may apply to WALMART and where that information should be disclosed to investors.
- Provide an investment recommendation that examines whether WALMART is a good investment decision.
