The net realisable value of stock has fallen below cost yet the owner refuses to adjust cost of goods sold [1]calculations

    In this prudent concept, losses should be recognized; so that precaution can be taken. but profits should not be recognized until they occur. It is called conservatism since this is old concept.

    I feel if the stock market value falls, the prices should not be adjusted, why? because point blank, you bought the product at the price before the fall, so you will lose alot of money that way. so I agree with the breach.
