Great concise content for free.

Big caveat: Tracking revenue instead of profit, cashflow, etc, can be misleading. Acquisitions in particular are an obvious strategy to increase revenue, but can, depending on the financing, dilute the shareholders, choke cashflow with increased debt, etc. Of course it can be done well, but I would like to hear this discussed or mentioned at least. But in 20 mins and for free, this is amazing! Thanks Harvard!
