In these letters, Mauricio intends to raise awareness of problems, mistakes, and limitations in using accounting data while selecting stocks. This month, he assesses BP and United Continental – two companies from different countries, sectors and accounting norms.

These two cases are meant to illustrate the importance of using corporate economic data instead, which definitely leads to very different conclusions. He will also detail VIA’s current fundamental statistics on our main investment universes (US, Europe & World).
