In this session, I start by tying up loose ends in earnings, capitalizing R&D, talking about adjusting for one-time charges and accounting fraud and tactics for negative earnings firms. I followed by looking at reinvestment in both long term assets (net capital expenditures) and change in working capital, and why accounting and valuation definitions vary. I ended by looking at historical growth rates, and why choices you make on operating metrics, how you compute averages and time periods matter.
