Probably a stupid question but here we go - is there a quick way to find all non-recurring items in an annual report?
I just find it takes a lot of time (too much for every comp) because every company does it differently - some list it separately in the P&L (best case), some have a dedicated note, some don't have anything and then I go to impairment / M&A notes if they exist.
Do you guys have some Ctrl-F checklist you go through, do you just know by heart which companies report it how or do you just not care and go through every note?
