Fluctuating revenue is a genuine risk of being in the stock market, shouldn't the participants face up to that risk instead of it being hidden by the companies' accounting tricks?

I wish they would. :)

In my time in accounting and finance there was nothing worse than having an unexpected spike in either direction when it came to revenue - you'd think the world was coming to an end, even though at the end of the year, we always came reasonably close to what had been forecast anyway.

Life has fluctuations, but apparently, revenue shouldn't...
