No, they're not credible. They may or may not be true or accurate. Sometimes they are. But those statements are made solely for the purpose of bolstering the company and the value of its stock. Hope that helps.

Audited financials are credible, the public comments of a company are not.

I give no credence to any statements made about the health of a company until I have researched deeply to determine whether the publicly available information is correct. If you ask an egg-seller how fresh his eggs are - he'll tell you they're so fresh, you'd need a time machine to get fresher. HE HAS AN AGENDA - HE WANTS TO SELL EGGS As you say - the CEO should know just about everything about his/her company. BUT SOMETIMES THEY LIE. As an individual with possible interests in a company - you HAVE TO DIG to find the real figures.

Ignore the words. Follow the money. On the Yahoo Finance page for any stock, look at "Insider Transactions". There is a whole body of research on Insider Trading (legal type). In general: - Management (CEO, President) trading is a better indicator than directors. - Cash trades matter more than exercising options or regularly scheduled sales. - Better indicator for smaller companies than large. - Recent trading matters more than older.
