    No, I'm not the financial guru like you. So I'll leave it to your own interpretation.

    Slashed his salary but probably gave him a massive bonus and a :censored2:load of stock to make up for it.

    Are they switching over to market-to-market accounting?

    Enron boosted their reported earnings by marking future earnings on financial reports. If they thought demand would be up, they added the profits from that forcasted demand. If it did not happen, they found other demand that they could made a profit on the forecast.

    The story of what they did is really interesting, in a bend over and take it, kind of way.

    Enron was my first experience with day trading------did not work out very well for me (or any of the other shareholders).
