Additional information about The Stanford Video Guide to Financial Statements

Want to get more out of financial reports? This entertaining story gives you a revealing look at the accounting standards that dictate how calculations are made, and the assumptions that can make a surprising difference to your bottom line.

Stanford professor George Parker provides both line-by-line explanations of the three key financial statements used by US companies, and offers logical, common-sense approaches to interpreting what they reveal about profitability, value, and the ability to pay bills.

The Balance Sheet

  • What does this company own?
  • How much debt is it carrying?
  • How much money have investors put in?

The Income Statement

  • What is the sales volume?
  • What kind of expense is the company incurring?
  • How much money is the company earning?
  • Which income figure should I look at: operating income, income before interest and taxes, or net income?

The Cash Flow Statement

  • Will this company be able to pay its bills?
  • Where's their cash flow coming from?

In this accounting video, you'll follow along as Dr. George Parker tracks the progress of Jill and Perry, non-financial managers assigned to evaluate the financial statements of two restaurants their company has targeted for acquisition. Learn not just textbook definitions, but real world meanings and business consequences.
