Nicole Mills XACC/280 Week 7 Checkpoint Lisa Pendleton “We use various tools to evaluate the significance of financial statement data. Three commonly used tools are these: Horizontal analysis evaluates a series of financial statement data over a period of time. Vertical analysis evaluates financial statement data by expressing each item in a financial statement as a percent of a base amount. Ratio analysis expresses the relationship among selected items of financial statement data. Horizontal analysis is used primarily in intracompany comparisons. Two features in published financial statements facilitate this type of comparison: First, each of the basic financial statements presents comparative financial data for a minimum of two years. Second, a summary of selected financial data is presented for a series of five to ten years or more. Vertical analysis is used in both intra- and intercompany comparisons.

    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.
