This question has been answered

I have to provide one half page double spaced APA text (minimum) on

the condition of the  'right-hand' side of the balance sheet for IBM (my chosen company) in terms of total debt to total equity of the firm.  In other words, provide and analyze the debt to equity ratio (I have provided spreadsheets for this).  I also need to skim through the annual report (i have attached) and need to provide one full APA page of text (minimum) that discusses the impressions on the company's income statement trends and balance sheet trends.  Report on at least one interesting finding from each of the income statement trends and balance sheet trends. List some interesting financial facts about your company.  This could be related to revenue, income, taxes paid. 
I can obviously write the paper up for this but was wondering if I could get some findings from the financials and touch on some of the questions that were asked of me. I am having a hard time looking at all of the financial information and picking out what stands out.
