Product description


" Financial Statement Analysis: A Practitioner′s Guide is a well–organized, thorough exploration of the challenges facing practitioners who rely on financial statements to make investment and lending decisions. Reference books about accounting, while valuable for their insights, are seldom this enjoyable to read. This book is different because the authors seamlessly integrate fascinating real–life examples and instructive fictional scenarios into each chapter to illustrate their points. For anyone with a passing interest in the subject, or for new analysts learning the trade, F inancial Statement Analysis is an amazing resource."
Christopher Shayne, CFA, Director of Product Operations for Enterprise Risk Solutions at Moody′s Analytics

"Any book that reaches its 4th edition (updated to 2011) should be good. That′s true in spades for Financial Statement Analysis. Fridson and Alvarez have written a classic. It should be required reading and a constant reference source on the bookshelf of any investor intending to buy individual company stocks or bonds."
Canadian Financial DIY blog

"In the 1990s, Benjamin Graham′s Security Analysis served as [Value Partners ] reference book, but since then they have been using Martin Fridson′s Financial Statement Analysis: A Practioner′s Guide."
excerpt from The Value Investors: Lessons from the World′s Top Fund Managers by Ronald Chan, Bruce C. N. Greenwald (Foreword)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful 11 May 2013
By Thomas Grover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been analyzing financial statements for decades and I have found this book to be a very useful resource indeed. The book is divided into four parts.They are: Reading between the Lines, Basic Financial Statements, A closer look at Profits, and Forecasts and Security Analysis. The narrative is written in plain English, MBA not required for interpretation, and the material is relevant to credit analysts and securities analysts.

If your looking for a functional and useful guide to financial statement analysis, this book will fit the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Financial Statement Analysis: A Practioners's Guide 28 February 2013
By R.M. Salomons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I use this book in my lectures Fundamental Analysis and Valuation for postgraduate students. It is very good supplement to the traditional valuation literature. Not only does it provide a healthy dose of theory in a readable format, but it also offers an abundance of examples. As such the book fully deserves its subtitle. A recommended read for anyone interested in financial statements and finance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Insight - but proof reading neds sum werk.... 1 June 2002
By James Smalley, CFA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a terrific book - brings home the point that financial statements are fluid - that the whole is more important than a single metric. Solid insight into why statements are presented the way they are. Interpretation is outstanding.
Only negative is the editing - specifically in the second half of the book: pg 195 table columns not lined up correctly; pg 214 & 215 Sales forecast is actually history - years labled incorrectly, etc.... Problem is in illustrations and tables - frustrating - but not materially so.
Overall - a great addition to any investment library.
I've also ordered the companion workbook - but as of 5/30 - has not been released.
