1. Course Description and Introduction This course introduces the tools for effective financial analysis. The objective of financial analysis is to unearth the underlying economics of the firm. Financial statements are probably the most complete source of information about the firm, and the premiere source of externally verified firm information. The analysis of financial statements is of interest to just about anyone involved in a business. We will analyze financial statements in the context of equity valuation for the purpose of making well-informed investment decisions. ** We will apply the tools of the course twice, first together as a class to Under Armour, and then in your group projects due January 17.
