Is financial statement analysis part of your job?
Is it a component of your corporate or personal investment strategy?
Don’t you wish you had an easier, faster way of doing it?
In this scenario, you need to understand and apply financial statement analysis in an efficient manner.
Current and potential employees, lenders, and shareholders read company financial statements with a different goal or purpose in mind. They use financial statements in a variety of ways, seeking information specific to their needs. This CPE course provides an overview of the basic financial statements and how to interpret the information presented within the statements and footnotes.
This CPE webinar provides thorough coverage of how to read and analyze financial statements as well as how the analysis can be organized to identify and assess a company’s value drivers. It begins with videos covering the balance sheet, income statement, statement of cash flows, and the statement of shareholders’ equity. It then moves into the real world, focusing on Home Depot, its key performance measures, leading to complete ratio analysis. Home Depot’s performance is then compared to that of Lowe’s Home Improvement in terms of the basic ratios, more much, more importantly, using an ROE-based model that highlights the companies’ value drivers.
