Have you ever wondered how they do it? How do those accountants see through the numbers so quickly, talking about trends, margins and ratios with the ease of coasting down a cool stream in a canoe with their favorite brew sliding through the water on a short leash? We can help.

Join us for an introduction to financial analysis and we will show you how they do it and how you can quickly become your own analyst.

Topics Covered

  • Develop a horizontal analysis of a publicly traded company
  • Produce the key liquidity, leverage and profitability ratios for the company
  • Complete a vertical analysis of the company
  • Participate in a demonstration and practice of this analysis using our Microsoft Excel Model to analyze a real life Balance Sheet and Income Statement of a publicly traded company

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize how to apply horizontal, vertical and ratio analysis to financial statements
  • Identify positive and negative trends and use the MD&A of the annual report to betterunderstand the reasons behind them from management's perspective
