We will be hosting a Speaker Series call with Jack Ciesielski, the CEO of the Accounting Observer (AO), tomorrow (June 9th) at 11 a.m. EST.
Our topic will be the ongoing impact of overly volatile foreign currencies on the financial statements of some of America's most important companies. While most analysts and portfolio managers are up-to-speed on the earnings impact of FX translation, there are less obvious consequences including:
- Devaluation of foreign cash reserves which impacts cash flow
- Common equity degradation which increases financial leverage
- ROE implications depending on the direction of financial leverage
The AO will outline which sectors in the S&P 500 have the most sensitivity to various FX implications and also distill impact to the company specific level for the largest constituents of the index.
