I’m studying for my Accounting class and need an explanation.
Think of the everyday business transactions that you engage in as a consumer or an employee of your organization or both. Think also in terms of the value chain that is needed to create the product or service that you buy or sell to the end user. In other words, identify the end-to-end cycle of products from manufacturing to finished goods to market and what value is added in the process.
Select one publicly traded company that has been in existence for at least five years and discuss its value chain. Also, answer the following questions: What industry is it in? What do they sell? Finally, provide a link to its financial data online from the Yahoo! Finance website.
In responding to your classmates’ posts, compare the financial data for the classmate’s chosen company from the Yahoo! Finance site with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) website; on the SEC site, you will run a search on the company name and view the Filings on Edgar. Be sure to consider the 10-K report filed with the SEC as part of your review. What similarities or differences are there in the information provided by each of the sites for the company?
To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric document.
