The Power and Beauty of Earnings for Investors

BrainBite Evening Lecture: 8 June



What is the relation between changes in earnings and changes in stock prices? To what extent can four basic accounting fundamentals (earnings per share, book value, dividends, and operating income growth) explain variation in share prices? And how can we use this information to identify stocks that may be temporarily over- or under-priced? Join us for this session of BrainBites where Professor Jim Wahlen will discuss the power and beauty of accounting information in the capital markets.

This BrainBite will look at very compelling evidence from empirical research but Jim Wahlen will not drag you into the world of statistics and econometrics. Instead, he will make sure it is intriguing, focusing on the evidence and the takeaways, getting you to appreciate the powerful, dynamic relation between accounting information and share prices and stock returns in the capital markets.
