9781604944556: The Truth Behind the Numbers in Financial Statements: A Step-by-Step Guide to Investigating Before You Invest

Inside: Secrets you need to know to protect your nest egg

The economy shows signs of recovering from the worst recession since the 1930s. Savvy investors are already bargain shopping for stocks that are priced well and ready to climb out of the doldrums. But as the saying goes, "once burned, twice shy." It's more important than ever to guard against scams and be very careful about where you invest your hard-earned dollars.

Let this book be your guide. In plain English, you'll take a guided tour of a typical financial statement, and learn:

  • How to cut through the hype in an annual report and, with a few simple calculations, know how a company is really performing
  • Why you should turn a deaf ear to "stock tips," even when they come from a broker or financial planner
  • The red flags to look for in financial statements that indicate the management is trying to pull the wool over your eyes
  • Why footnotes to financial statements are "must" reading for any investor
  • How to use the Internet to research markets, companies, and executives to uncover problems, pitfalls and golden opportunities
  • Secrets the pros use to spot the best performing stocks and bonds ahead of the average investor

The Truth Behind the Numbers in Financial Statements is written by José Roncal, a respected international dealmaker and corporate finance expert with over 20 years of experience in finance. Read this book and you'll understand why Donald Trump called his last book "a great read."
