Earnings Quality Analysis and Equity Valuation

  1. Richard G. Sloan, PhD

Richard G. Sloan discusses evidence on the success of earnings quality analysis in forecasting future earnings and stock returns and earnings quality analysis as a way to identify potential accounting debacles (Enron, WorldCom, etc.). He also reviews current issues in earnings quality analysis, including expensing stock options, fair value accounting, asset impairments, and off-balance-sheet transactions.
