CFRA’s robust, independent forensic research methodology uncovers important differences between reported financial results and a company or industry’s true financial health. To assist investors with idea generation and understanding financial statement risk, CFRA’s Biggest Concerns List provides an expertly curated portfolio which seeks to identify manipulative accounting schemes which mask deterioration in a company’s underlying business.
During this informative 30 minute webinar, CFRA highlighted important market relevant accounting topics that investors need to know for 2019. Participants learned of the significant changes under the new lease accounting guidance for US and IFRS companies and how the changes will impact key performance metrics. In addition, we discussed the implications of the new revenue revenue recognition guidance for 2019 growth targets. Finally, we highlighted the performance of companies flagged on our Biggest Concerns list and examined several key case studies.
