Bauer Financial Reports Inc. of Coral Gables, Fla., is offering a report that compares an institution's present performance to selected previous periods. The report can be used to measure a competitor's performance to assess its growth and profitability.
The company reconstructs call reports, then adds, column for column, the reporting data for the period selected. The periods do not have to be sequential; any five periods over the past five years will be provided. Next, Bauer calculates the percentage changes on a line-by-line basis - comparing each selected period to the most recent period. The report is $125 per issue.
