Financial analysis of Sotheby's involves more than just checking the Sotheby's stock price, by looking at the financial statements of the company in detail. An income statement is one of the three key financial statements furnished by a company, the other two being the balance sheet and the cashflow statement. Like any other income statement, the BID income statement also itemizes revenue/sales, operating expenses, and profits/bottomline for a quarter or year and reflects a YOY revenue growth of 22.85% when compared to the same period in the past. Revenue for year 2017 is $989.38M and has increased from $805.37M year on year as is evident when you compare the latest figures in the latest Sotheby's profit and loss statement with those of the prior corresponding period.

It is very helpful to read a report on Sotheby's stock analysis. An investor must check the following items in an income statement:

  • Revenue: The money received by selling of goods or services comes under this line item. A YoY growth - See: Sotheby's revenue chart implies that the company is growing. It has been the case with Sotheby's. One must look at stocks with increasing revenues, and stay away from stocks whose revenues or sales are declining.
  • Bottom line: Most businesses like Sotheby's try to grow their profits by growing their topline and by increasing their operating efficiency. A healthy bottom line growth implies a good investment.

The income statement is also called statement of revenue and expense. The BID financials along with Sotheby's historical stock prices provide a lot of details about the firm.
