How to Read Financial Statements and Financial Journalism (Series: PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0)
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.
