Earnings reports and jargon
I would say that all earnings reports accentuate the positive and obfuscate the negative. My favourite jargon is from a UK retailer that used to talk about investing in gross margin when they actually meant discounting prices. While we are on the topic I thought it interesting that Trump is advocating 6 monthly reporting instead of 3 monthly. There might be some cost savings and it would free time for management to focus on running the business instead of doing investor roadshows. Not often I agree with Mr Trump.
