AuthorTopic: Best company for understanding FSA

Hello all,

I am interested in studying the FSA while I have the Financial Statements (BS, IS, CFS, etc..) in front of me of a company.

The thing is that I am looking a good example for starting and not a very complicated company with several branches, etc...

So, does anyone a good real example of a company for study? The idea is take the FSA of that company from sites like Edgar...

Thank you very much

Good luck to everybody.

Obviously you want to stick to the books and study guides, but I like the idea of looking at a real world company while doing this to help it stick more. One idea might be to look at a single product yet profitable biotech company. I'd imagine something like Alexion (ALXN) would be a good bet. They are only recently profitable, so taxes shouldn't be coming directly into play yet which will make things simpler.

Note: I haven't actually looked at ALXN financial statements in any detail, so I can't swear that any of the above is true, but the little I know about the company suggests it might be. I also haven't gotten to the FSA text yet, so I don't really know what is involved in that section either.

I am using your study notes and I know of at least 5 other friends of mine who used it and passed the exam last Dec. Keep up your great work!
