Analyzing the income statement, much like cash flows, proves more insightful when considering not just the last year but comparing it across multiple historical periods, such as the last 3 or 4 years.

The richness of historical data enhances our understanding, and InvestingPro excels in this regard, allowing for a thorough analysis spanning the past 10 years.

2. Fair Value

This is the essential indicator that shows whether the stock is overvalued or undervalued relative to the market price.

InvestingPro's fair value employs advanced financial modeling techniques akin to those utilized by analysts in investment banks or equity research agencies.

This approach facilitates the identification of undervalued or overvalued companies, providing quick access to crucial metrics such as the stock's average target price, upside potential, and uncertainty.

In essence, the fair value of a stock we intend to evaluate represents its genuine intrinsic value. Serving as an objective estimate of potential, it proves instrumental in fundamental analysis for gauging a company's value based on anticipated future cash flows.
