Well not too basic, actually.
I already know what a gross margin is.
But then, it shouldn`t be too complicated either.
I`m not looking to become an accounting professional, I just want to invest intelligently.
I want to be able to understand where each item on the sheet comes from, whether a decrease or increase is positive or negative, how they relate to each other and how these items are typically manipulated to make things look better than they are.
Practice questions would be nice.
