The Edgar Online Guide to Decoding Financial Statements: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Becoming a Savvy Investor
Despite the passage of Sarbanes-Oxley, navigating through a company’s financial statements can still be a tricky proposition. The EDGAR Online Guide to Decoding Financial Statements covers not only how to find the red flags but also how to find the signs of underlying financial strength. It is absolutely critical to have the necessary tools for effective analysis. Clear and accessible, written in an easily readable, step-by-step style that hits every key element, this book gives you those tools. It will not be long before you can easily maneuver through financial statements. There has not been a relevant financial statement analysis book for the average investor since early 2001 and investing has changed markedly since then.
