how to read company reports

31 Oct 2007 on learning

Public listed companies' annual reports are found freely on their websites for their shareholders and they can be pretty long, but i found that browsing through gave an immense view about business and finances. There must surely be a better way to analyse them...

and a report usually has the following parts...

  1. Chairman's letter
  2. Stock history
  3. Financial Statements - Balance sheet, Income Statement
  4. Products of the Company
  5. Competitive Analysis
