In lesson three, we explored the importance of a Balance Sheet. We learned that current assets and liabilities are income streams and obligations, respectively, that a company will receive or pay during the next 12 months. We also learned that the equity of a business was equal to the total assets minus the total liabilities. After determining a company’s equity, we can use that important number to determine the margin of safety that’s associated with buying a business.
