Pick a publically traded company. Go to Wal-Mart Web site, find their annual financial report. If you cannot find it on their site, do an Internet search. Sometimes these are found under Investor Relations on a company’s site. If you still cannot find the annual report, try another search until you find one (for example, search for “GAP Annual Report”). Search for the economic profit, EVA, and free cash flow in the firm’s annual report, and discuss your findings. Discuss the firm’s operations as indicated by their annual report. Submit your backup in Excel or other.
