Jingcai Vision: Defensive City, Peter Lynch teaches you to quickly look at cash flow and liabilities
Equity investment has always had an interesting phenomenon, that is, despite strict supervision, listed companies have disclosed almost all the information that should be disclosed in the prospectus, quarterly report and annual report.
