Over the years, if there is one big issue I have seen small investors face while searching for businesses to invest in, it is that they find it difficult to read financial statements that companies use to report their performance.
The terms like Assets, Liabilities, and Equity seem like bouncers!
In fact, the very term ‘financial statements’ sounds so over-whelming to most investors, that they don’t look what lies inside an annual report, which is such an important document to read before investing in any business.
But the reality is that reading financial statements in one of the most important skills you must learn before getting into stock picking…
…and it is one skill that would give you an upper edge over 95% of all individuals who are just trying their luck in the stock market, as they speculate in stocks without understanding what they are getting into.
And to help you do just that, I have designed a special course called…

This 2-month online course is aimed to help you gain a deep understanding of how to read financial statements, and in a very simplified manner. Overall, you will…

Benjamin Graham, the father of Value Investing, said that you should buy your stocks like you buy your groceries.
If you focus on the fundamentals of a business, which are reported by companies using financial statements, you shouldn’t go wrong in your investment decisions.
