I am an individual investor that eagerly digs into a company's financial data to see what I can learn about it. Deciphering the mysteries of financial reports has been a long-term quest that began when a pre-Internet mailman unexpectedly left some company's formal report at my door. Over time, I synthesized various approaches for fundamental analysis into one ever-evolving methodology to assess performance and value. The Gauging Corporate Financial Results blog describes the analyses I perform and the methodology itself. Writing about these efforts helps focus my thoughts. I share them with the hope I might be helping other investors. I know I benefit from reader feedback.
