Course Objectives:
Security Analysis exposes students to applied equity valuat ion techniques employed by finance professionals.   
Valuing a firm’s stock is a difficult task that requires a variety of macroeconomic, industry, and company-specific forecasts. The valuation process is rarely black and white. Two individuals may reach completely different conclusions from the same information. While there is no such thing as a “good” or “bad” assumption, some are clearly more supported than others.
You will not become an expert in one semester. Our primary goal for the course is to cultivate a solid understanding of basic valuation techniques and develop an aptitude for analyzing the primary drivers of a company’s value.  You should leave the course with the knowledge of how to apply several   valuation   models,   and   an   ability   to   comprehend   investment recommendations.
