Cash Flow Statements and Cash Hoards”.
Need help with my Accounting question – I’m studying for my class.
- Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp are identified as companies that have accumulated substantial sums of cash. Microsoft and Apple increased dividend payouts and acquired treasury stock to return some of the excess cash to shareholders. Use the Internet and / or Strayer Learning Resource Center to identify (1) one additional large company that is currently accumulating a cash hoard. Next, evaluate how the company identified in your research can use the cash flow statement to project efficient uses of the cash hoard it has accumulated.
- Suggest at least two (2) advantages and two (2) disadvantages of companies accumulating cash hoards. Provide a rationale for your suggestion.
