To be eligible to earn full credit, your responses to the questions above need to be presented in
your own words instead of a copied and pasted statement of cash flows. Make sure you reference
the cited source(s) for the annual report and the statement of cash flows.
Activision Blizzard, Inc. reported $418,000 net income and $1,376,000 net cash provided by
operating activities in their 2011 10-K annual report (SEC, 2012). As an investor, I prefer
companies that use the indirect method of reporting for their statement of cash flows mainly
because it is the method used by most companies and the method I am most familiar with.
Additionally, because of the majority use, it provides a better basis for comparability from
company to company. However, according to Weygandt, Kimmel, and Kieso (2010) the FASB
prefers the direct method because its basis better reflects the intentions of indicating cash flows
than the indirect method.
