[SOLVED] You should answer all of the

[SOLVED] You should answer all of the questions listed below as they relate to the financial statements of any U.S. public company of your choice in its latest annual report. Please use the Securities and Exchange Commission web site as your primary source for financial statements.  All publicly traded U S companies have their annual reports called the 10-K available through the Securities and Exchange Commission web site.

Instructions for use of the site are as follows:  About half way down the home page is a box titled Search EDGAR, free access to over 21 million filings.  Enter the company name or ticker symbol.  That brings up a page called EDGAR Search Results.  In the line "filter results"  enter "10-K" in filing type and hit search.  That will bring up recent company annual reports. Note: You have a choice of "Documents" or "Interactive Data." Both contain all the information.  "Interactive Data" uses Excel and provides the best access to information for questions 1, 2, and 3. "Documents"  provides information that is easy to read for questions 4 through 8.  After you click on Documents, click on the red letters and numbers to the right of the "10-K" heading.

Also you can find the financial statements of any U.S. public company by visiting Morningstar, Yahoo Finance or MSN Money, and using the stock market symbol for your chosen company (which can be looked up on Morningstar, Yahoo Finance or MSN Money).  Please be aware that sometimes these services omit some numbers in order to fit their preferred formats. Many companies have links to the Annual Report as filed with the SEC.  It can be found on the Investor relations page of the company web site.  

If you work for a U.S. public company, you may want to use the financial statements of your company - but the choice is up to you.

1) What 3 items of important information does the income statement reveal about the financial performance of the company over the last three years? 

2) What 3 items of important information does the balance sheet reveal about the financial position of the company over the last two years? 

3) Can you identify the major sources of funding used by the company from the information presented in the company's annual report?  Please look at the Statement of Cash Flows, formerly called the Source and Uses of Funds Statement.

4) Who is responsible for:

      a) the issuance, and

      b) the content

of the company financial statements? (Note: this information may be difficult to find.  Look for statements by management and the independent auditing firm.)

5) What assurance, if any, is there that the financial statements are in compliance with GAAP, and are free of material misstatements? 

6) Of what use, if any, are the notes to the financial statements? Give an example of something learned from the footnotes of your company.

7) What can you learn from the Business Section of the 10-K?  Give two facts learn from reading this section.

8) What can you learn from the Management Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (MD&A)?  Give two facts learned from reading this section.

HP company

10-K Annual Report for year ending December 31, 2016, filed December 15, 2016

What 3 items of important information does the income statement reveal about the
financial performance of the company over the last three years?
Decrease in revenue in the last three years
Most of HPQ revenue comes from sales of the computers products commonly laptops. Over
the last three years from 2014 to 2016, the revenue of HPQ Company has been going down.
From 2014 to 2015, the revenue reduced by 7.3% while in 2015 to 2016 by 53%. Reduction
of revenue is as a result of the separation of HP into two individual public trading companies
i.e. HPQ and HP Inc. This can also be as a result of an increase in the cost of production.
However, since the operating expense reduced in 2016 by 72% as compared to 2014, this
means that the business was undergoing a reduction in production.
Operating income reduced by a large margin in 2016
In 2014, the operating income of HPQ was 7.131 billion, in 2015, 7.185 billion and 2016,
5.471 billion. Changes in 2016 are equal to 24%. This can be attributed to the reduction of
production capacity evident in reduced operation expense by 72% which was a result of the
separation of HPQ from HP Company. Besides that, the overall net income of the company
has reduced since 2014. In 2015, net income reduced by 42% while in 2016, it reduced by
1.5%. This clear indication that the company is improving drastically as it tries to manage its

Earnings per share reduced
The quality of shareholder’s income reduced from 2014 to 2016. Despite that the diluted
earnings per share from 2014 to 2015 remains constant, meaning that the value of investors in
those two years remained unchanged. However, in 2016, the diluted earnings per share
reduced from 2.62 to 2.48. This can be attributed to the reduced operation by the company
hence has resulted in a reduction in overall income. When overall income is reduced, we
expect the shareholders to experience the same as they are required to share both returns and
failure of the company. In 2015, the company separated, and that also lead to the division of
stock and capitalization value. The distribution of share is the main reason for the reduction
of diluted earnings per share.
