Description

Description:
This course includes 10 videos that provide a 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 a 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.
