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.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: NASDAQ's bear market & Amazon's buyback
Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at the rally in the NASDAQ and warns that history shows that, even in bear markets, there can be substantial rallies. As he points out, all the problems for the growth stocks that caused the market to fall are still present. He also considers Amazon's buyback plan and stock split, the first time the company has returned cash to investors since its market debut in 1997. Discussing buybacks in general, happening a great deal in the UK at the moment, he cautions investors to see whether the board are also buying into the company.

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.

The Bigger Picture: The U-turn on energy, Putin & unintended consequences & NHS virtual wards
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University, in conversation with Simon Rose, looks at the extraordinary U-turns being made in the field of energy, with oil, gas and even coal coming back, leading to amazing new alliances being made and with ramifications that can't yet be foreseen. He discusses the unintended consequences of Putin's invasion of Ukraine, one of which he fears may be to damage the historic reputation of Russia. And he gets excited by the idea of "virtual wards" being trialled by the NHS.

The Business of Film: The Batman, Ali & Ava, Against the Ice & The Metamorphosis of Birds
Most films are suffering the onslaught of The Batman, says James Cameron-Wilson, looking at the UK box office. This dark version of the Dark Knight, almost 3 long hours long, took £13.5m over the weekend, the 3rd highest since the pandemic. British indie comedy Ali & Ava made #9. James had reservations about Netflix's true-life survival drama Against The Ice, a Danish-Icelandic co-production. But he loved Portuguese The Metamorphosis of Birds, almost a new cinematic art form in itself, out in selected cinemas and on various streaming platforms.

Thought for the Week: The Awful Legacy of Carbon
For the past fifty years, nearly all major conflicts have been driven by economic power granted to tyrants by our dependency on fossil fuels. We must now recognise the awful footprint it has left in terms of human suffering, as well as climate change. The huge rise in fossil fuel prices will bring substantial dividends to those who look for opportunities to invest in the new ways of powering the economy, and could kick-start moves to a safer and cleaner world.

Motley Fool Money - mid-week: Russia - Explaining Sanctions and SWIFT
The fallout from Russia's invasion of Ukraine has investors asking a lot of questions. And while some in the financial media are eager to draw quick and hard conclusions, there are still a lot of unknowns. Bill Mann discusses the impact of U.S. and European economic sanctions, SWIFT (Society of Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications) and why it's so important, Switzerland abandoning its neutrality in favor of freezing Russian assets, his continued interest in the oil & gas industry right now, and an important step anyone should take before making charitable contributions.
