Too much talk of fair value?

BVWireIssue #67-3
April 16, 2008

“I have always looked forward to reading the BVWire™ and consider it a ‘must-read,’” writes Charles Schreiber Jr. (Walnut Creek, CA).  But according to one of the ‘Wire’s earliest reader polls (see issue # 49-2), just over half (51%) of respondents dealt on a daily basis with companies with sales between $1 million and $5 million.  “The BVWire that once had a great deal of practical information seems to have been redirected to FASB and international accounting standards,” Schreiber says.  “Those of us dealing with companies under $5 million may find [this] interesting from an academic prospective but useless from a practical prospective.”  BVWire should reevaluate its content, he suggests, to align more closely with the needs of its audience.
