Sentinelone Inc Debt Current is relatively stable at the moment as compared to the past year. Sentinelone Inc reported last year Debt Current of 1.14 Billion. As of 06/28/2022, Issuance Repayment of Debt Securities is likely to grow to about 5.9 B, while Total Debt is likely to drop slightly above 25.6 B. Sentinelone Inc Total Assets Per Share are relatively stable at the moment as compared to the past year. Sentinelone Inc reported last year Total Assets Per Share of 25.17. As of 06/28/2022, Net Current Assets as percentage of Total Assets is likely to grow to 2.69, while Operating Margin is likely to drop (5.31) .
At this time, it appears that Sentinelone Inc is an unlikely manipulator. The earnings manipulation may begin if Sentinelone Inc's top management creates an artificial sense of financial success, forcing the stock price to be traded at a high price-earnings multiple than it should be. In general, excessive earnings management by Sentinelone Inc executives may lead to removing some of the operating profits from subsequent periods to inflate earnings in the following periods. This way, the manipulation of Sentinelone Inc's earnings can lead to misrepresentations of actual financial condition, taking the otherwise loyal stakeholders on to the path of questionable ethical practices and plain fraud.

Sentinelone Inc Beneish M-Score Indicator Trends

The cure to earnings manipulation is the transparency of financial reporting. It will typically remove the temptation of the top executives to inflate earnings (i.e., to promote the idea of 'winning at any cost'). Because a healthy internal audit department can enhance transparency, the board should promote the auditors' access to all the record-keeping systems across the enterprise. For example, if Sentinelone Inc's auditors report directly to the board (not management), the managers will be reluctant to manipulate simply due to the fear of punishment. On the other hand, the auditors will be free to investigate the ledgers properly because they know that the board has their back.

About Sentinelone Inc Beneish M Score

M-Score is one of many grading techniques for value stocks. It was developed by Professor M. Daniel Beneish of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and published in 1999 under the paper titled The Detection of Earnings Manipulation. The Beneish score is a multi-factor model that utilizes financial identifiers to compile eight variables used to classify whether a company has manipulated its reported earnings. The variables are built from the officially filed financial statements to create a final score call 'M Score.' The score helps to identify companies that are likely to manipulate their profits if they show deteriorating gross margins, operating expenses, and leverage against growing revenue.
