ST-Value Investing

Value Investing is designed to equip students with an historical perspective of the stock market and to acquaint them with some basic techniques for analyzing opportunities for investments in publicly traded companies. Such opportunities, it is assumed, are based in market inefficiencies that detach price from value and on the value-creating role of companies. As such, the course draws deeply on what we know about crowd psychology and as well on the approaches to analyzing the profit potential of specific companies. In effect, Value Investing is about investing in public companies the old fashioned way ? one company at a time. Along with concepts/tools from psychology, strategy and finance, this course draws upon the teachings of Benjamin Graham, Philip Fisher, Warren Buffet, and on more modern practitioners such as Bill Miller and Seth Klarman.

Prerequisite: A working knowledge of Microsoft Excel or equivalent spreadsheet software
