Motley Fool Money: Financial Metrics that Actually Drive Profits
A company's financials are more than just a set of numbers. They can tell a story that helps us understand the core of a business and where its growth opportunity lies. John Rotonti talks with fellow Motley Fool senior analyst Auri Hughes about the financials to watch before putting your money into a publicly traded company. They discuss profit drivers in a company’s balance sheet, the portions of a 10-K to which investors should pay close attention, and metrics that provide insights about a company’s growth prospects.

Motley Fool Money Mid-week: "It's almost everything for the Russian economy"
That's how Bill Mann describes the importance of the oil & gas industry in Russia. As we take stock of where we are at this moment, Bill discusses ripple effects for European countries, whether seizing property of Western companies would spell the end of foreign investment in Russia, why Energy Secretary Granholm's recent comments give him hope, rising raw material costs affecting companies like McDonald's and Domino's Pizza, and the J Curve. Plus - If Russia provides just 3% of America's oil supply then why have gas prices spiked in the US? Ricky Mulvey talks with Nick Sciple to get some context.

Motley Fool Money: Why We Never Try To Time The Market
A sudden upswing for stocks late in the week is only the latest reminder of why it's a bad idea to try and time the market. Jason Moser and Ron Gross share data that proves staying in the market is much more efficient (and lucrative) for investors than jumping in and out, and discuss: Etsy increasing their seller transaction fee, Block's transaction revenue growth, Home Depot and Lowe's getting different reactions from similar 4th-quarter reports, and the latest from Beyond Meat, Mercadolibre, Fulgent Genetics, and Booking Holdings. Chief Investment Officer Andy Cross talks with Jeff Green, CEO of The Trade Desk, and Jason and Ron answer a listener's question about how to build a portfolio. Jason's radar stock is Zoom Video and Ron unveils his "Resilient Basket" of stocks! (Costco, Disney, Domino's Pizza, Home Depot, Microsoft, Target).

After another rough week, it's worth remembering that great businesses thrive in volatile markets. So how can investors separate companies at risk from stocks that are experiencing a momentary drop?

Also, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Rory Kennedy discusses her new Netflix documentary, 'Downfall: The Case Against Boeing', and Emily and Jason ponder the threat of an avocado shortage in America and share two stocks on their radar: Upstart Holdings and Etsy.
