Earnings announcements and other financial statements provide a snapshot of a company’s financial performance and prospects for future growth. But, an incomplete or misinterpreted reading of such information can lead to inaccurate reporting on the true financial standing of a particular company.
CFA Institute invites journalists to participate in a live, interactive Web forum to gain a better understanding of earnings releases and learn what each figure really means for a company’s growth. Topics discussed include:
- What information the earnings reports reveal.
- How to understand the balance sheet, cash flow analysis, profitability ratios, and limitations of ratio analysis.
- How to determine what factors are affecting a company’s earnings.
