The greatest investors have grown by acquiring emotional, analytical, and informational advantages… and they recognize the distortions and problems in Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)-based financial statements.

Warren Buffett: “The net earnings figure… is not representative of the business at all.”

Forbes: “Why GAAP Accounting Rules May Be Damaging to Investors.”

Seth Klarman: “Analysis of reported earnings can mislead investors as to the real profitability of a business.”

To find out how to be a successful investor like the investing greats, join Professor Joel Litman, Chairman and CEO of Valens Research and Founder and Chief Investment Strategist of Altimetry Financial Research, as he discusses his provocative opinions and his no-holds-barred view of the state of Wall Street Research and what he calls “a demise more than ten years in the making.”
