Comprehensive Case Assignment:
Costco (Ticker: COST), Target (Ticker: TGT), and Walmart (Ticker: WMT) are competitors in Discount/Variety Stores industry within the Services sector of the economy. Because of their similarities and direct competition with each other, they provide an excellent foundation for a Comprehensive Case to bring together all of the principles we will learn in class this semester.
Throughout the semester, in order to bring the lecture material to life, we will be conducting a “Comprehensive Case”. The assignment will consist of numerous parts that will be due at various points throughout the semester (see syllabus).

We will utilize this case template to illustrate and compare these two organizations throughout the semester. It will also become the foundation from which we will do forecasting and valuation for Costco Wholesale during class. Thus, perusing the rest of the 10K filings on SEC Edgar in a bit more detail may prove useful to your overall understanding and quality of learning from this semester-long comprehensive case exercise.
So far, we have reviewed the 10K statements for Costco, Target, and Walmart on SEC Edgar, using that information to populate the Comprehensive Case Template which has been posted on Blackboard. The template provides an overview of the Balance Sheet and Income Statement from the last two years for each company.
Using the information from the Comprehensive Case Template as well as your understanding of the principles covered in the text and lectures, prepare a 2 page written case addressing the following by comparing Costco (as your primary company) to their competitors Target and Walmart:
relating to each?

Basic = 1 Point, Developed = 2 Points, Mastery = 3 Points. Points will be summed up and divided out of points possible to arrive at the grade
