Discussion: Would You Invest? If you had to make an investment decision rightnow, such as whether to put $1,000 into one of three companies, it wouldbe helpful if you could rely on more than your personal feelings orsentiments toward a company. As illustrated in this week’s LearningResources, financial statements help provide that additional insightinto a company’s financial health. These statements will not be usefulto you, however, if you do not know how to interpret them and understandthe implications of what the numbers represent. Interpreting financialstatements can be as much of an art as a science because analysts mayinterpret the data differently depending on their goals and outlook. Inthis Discussion, you will locate a publicly traded company, review itsfinancial statements, and determine if investing in the company is agood or bad decision. To prepare for this Discussion: Visit the Nasdaq Company List at http://www.nasdaq.com/screening/company-list.aspx and locate a public company of your choosing. Select the company’s page and scroll down to the Fundamentals section of the navigation menu. Click on Income Statement.
