A company in your pathway that maintains an inventory


Select a company in your pathway that maintains an inventory. Don’t use a company that someone has already used. Please put the company’s name as the subject of your post. (No posting the company name only to hold it. You must make a full post or I will delete it.)

Access a recent (less than 12 months) annual 10-K report for the company using the SEC Edgar search tool or Yahoo or Google finance. Review the report and in and in a minimum of three paragraphs, tell us the following:

  1. When the report was filed and the time period it covers, indicating specific dates.
  2. What are the company’s major product lines?
  3. What inventory methods do they use? (Hint: see the Notes of the financial statements)
  4. List the major components of the inventory and their values.
  5. Include two other items that you found interesting about the financial statements.

Examples of businesses in pathways could be:

AHCD: Dance, Theater, Film production, Social media, Graphics design or architecture business
