How to Read Financial Statements and Financial Journalism

Series: PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0 - 2019

Personal Finance and Investing Fundamentals 2.0 - Financial Statements and Financial Journalism

Journalists — financial and otherwise — are not paid to compare carefully the strongest pro- and con- arguments of a proposition. Strong incentives push journalists toward producing loud click-bait. There is no day of reckoning for their views, as there is for investors who do as suggested. Readers, for their part, tend to click what confirms their own biases. How can an investor separate the wheat from the chaff in financial journalism? How can an investor look at the financial statements of a potential investment and decide for herself what the numbers mean? These are the topics for this webinar.

This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in the subject. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.
