Analysis of Financial Statements Worksheet

Use the worksheet below to determine if a company has the coveted Durable Competitive Advantage. Calculate the ratios and equations using the values found in the company's financial statements.

Understand the Business

Is the company very well known or has a recognizable brand name?

 

 

What does the company do and how does it make money?

 

 

Does the company pay dividends?

 

 

 

Determine if the Company has Good Management

Who is the CEO and Chairman of the company? Who are its Board Members?

 

 

Is the CEO, Chairman, and Board Members smart? Are they dumb? Are they innovative and productive? Or are they old and obsolete?

 

 

Google or find YouTube videos of the CEO, Chairman, and Board Members. Do you like their face? Is your gut feeling about them good or bad?

 

 

Does the company's management look out for the interest of shareholders? Or are they greedy and they are in it for themselves?

Strength of Durable Competitive Advantage

If the company's 10 Year Earnings Per Share is rising, it means the company may have a Durable Competitive Advantage. In that case, we should analyze the company's Financial Statements to find out the strength of the company's durability. If the company's earnings is erratic; going through periods of losses or no profitability, then the company most likely does not have what we are looking for. In that case, stop here, there is no point in proceeding.
