Book: Investing Between the Lines: How to Make Smarter Decisions By Decoding CEO Communications by L.J. Rittenhouse.

Overview: 

Proof that Culture and Transparency Do Drive Financial Performance

Investing Between the Lines introduces a revolutionary method for evaluating the financial integrity of a company. You don’t need special access to “insider” information or a degree in accounting to figure it out. In fact, the secret is right in front of you—in black and white—in the words of every shareholder letter, annual report, and corporate correspondence you receive.

Investing Between the Lines shows you how to:

  • Decipher the “FOG” of confusing company communications
  • Decode the real meaning behind corporate jargon and platitudes
  • Separate the facts from the fluff in annual reports and quarterly earnings calls
  • Safeguard your money by investing in companies that steward investor capital

Too often, corporate executives and investment professionals are expected to deliver short-term results. As a result, they are compelled to turn to accounting techniques and unclear language to meet these expectations.

L.J. Rittenhouse lays out her time-tested approach for recognizing at-risk businesses before trouble hits. This is the same method she used to predict the collapse of Enron and the fall of Lehman.

Once you learn the clues to decode CEO communications, you will be able to invest between the lines—to figure out exactly what a company’s CEO is or isn’t telling you.

This thought provoking discussion will be facilitated by Don Minges and co-facilitated by Bruce Fritch and Sherre DeMao.

As a reminder, you don't have to read the book to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!

During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don¹t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you¹re passionate about and would like to share with the group. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
