Methods: Basic scientific methods of analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction and abstraction were used to meet the stated goal.
Findings & Value added: In general, earnings of high quality are those that have a high level of persistence, are more predictable, more timely, less volatile and have lower level of earnings management. Earnings management has a negative impact on the quality of earnings if it distorts the information in a way that is less useful for forecasting future cash flows.
