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 class strives to provide participants with a sound understanding of how financial markets work, rather than providing get-rich-quick trading schemes. The principles taught in this course are stressed by value investors such as Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham.
