  • 00:30:00 The balance sheet is a simple way to measure a company's financial health. A company with a strong balance sheet typically has no debt and a lot of cash, which makes it valuable. If a company has a lot of cash and is losing money, you still have to value it, but it's easier than it used to be because basic financial information is readily available. The income statement tells you how much money the company made from its operations over a period of time, and the basic formula is simple: you add up all the money the company brought in from selling products or services, and subtract all the money the company spent to create those products or deliver those services. The net income is the difference between earnings before taxes and net revenues. If a company has raised prices significantly, you can also check its profit margin to see if it's still making a lot of money for each product it sells. If a company is highly profitable and already has to reduce costs to keep up, you can expect it to keep getting more competitive.
