ORIE 350 Homework #4 Due September 26, 2006 1. Find the most recent financial statements available on the Internet (finance.yahoo.com or similar) for Costco Warehouse Corporation (COST). Compute and compare the days of accounts receivable, the days of inventory, and the days of accounts payable to those of Wal-Mart (done in class). Remember that we only will use the cash cycle definitions of these quantities developed in lecture, the average collection period defined in Chapter 8 in the text is not used. Answer: The answers will vary slightly based upon when the data was accessed. Since our definitions in class used annual net sales and annual cost of goods sold figures, we will use the annual data. Most recent data is for a August 28, 2005 FYE. Perhaps the 2006 data is available. Net Sales: $52,935,228,000 Cost of Goods Sold: $46,346,961,000 Accts Receivable: $559,171,000 and 335,175,000, averaging to $447,173,000 Accts Payable: $5,502,804,000 and 4,727,418,000, averaging to $5,115,111,000 Inventory: $4,014,699,000 and 3,643,585,000, averaging to $3,829,142,000 Cost of Goods Sold Payables Turnover= Average A/P Cost of Goods Sold Inventory Turnover=

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
