Please join the webinar, where David Bassett, CFA from CFRA Research will discuss Financial Shenanigans and how to identify discrepancies between reported financial results and a company or industry’s underlying economic reality.

It is no secret that public company management teams use complicated accounting tricks to hide operational deterioration in their underlying business. Using company examples, we point out how revenues, margins, and non-GAAP metrics can be flattered through aggressive accounting or other manipulative techniques.

During this session, participants will learn how to identify these early warning signs through financial statement analysis, and how to review annual and interim reports to find unsustainable benefits to reported results. We will also review several case studies and answer your questions.
