Dynamic Company, a telecommunications equipment company, has used the LIFO method adjusted for lower of cost or market for a number of years.

The company is considering changing its method to FIFO adjusted for lower of cost or market in the future. Explain how the accounting conventions of consistency, full disclosure, and conservatism apply to this decision. If the change were made, why would management expect fewer adjustments to market in the future?
