Class Description


What you'll learn in this investing class:

Learn what moves stock prices and how stocks are valued by investors. In this course, you will learn the essentials of valuation (such as P/E ratios and DCF analysis), financial statements, and fundamentals of stock investing. We will analyze recent earnings releases and valuation multiples of companies such as Google and Apple to provide a framework for fundamental investment research.

    The instructor is engaged, very friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. His class could be made stronger by not letting participants pull the class instruction into various tributaries that are too specific for the entire class to benefit from – especially when this is an intro level class. The other suggestion I have is for the instructor to stick to the basics and follow ABCD, rather than CFACDR etc. I definitely learned things - thanks!
