Before investing one should read a report on Post stock analysis. It helps to look at the following income statement items:

  • Topline: A growing topline, as seen from the Post revenue chart, as isn't the case with Post indicates a sagging business. One needs to compare the QoQ topline or sales growth of POST stock with its peers like BRFS stock and SMGBY stock to see if the growth compares well with what can be expected from a company in that industry.
  • Bottom line: The word bottom line comes because it is usually the last line of the income statement and refers to the actual profits after deducting all expenses from the revenues. POST stock had a healthy bottom line growth.

The income statement is also called the profit and loss statement. Apart from the POST income statement, one can check the Post historical stock prices to check how the price has moved with time.
