Students will learn to analyze equity securities using the basic EIC (Economy/Industry/Company) framework used in the financial industry, paying special attention to financial statement analysis. Students also will learn the primary valuation techniques used to estimate market values for equity securities. Additionally, students will learn about the equity markets by studying current and expected changes in market structure and function, and by studying alternative methods of making equity investments. The analytical framework and valuation techniques, as well as the practical market information students learn in this class will be useful for careers in corporate finance, asset management, research, sales, trading, financial market regulation or financial journalism.

Current Events: Students will be expected to read the wsj.com and Bloomberg.com every day before class and will be encouraged to check the markets periodically using the internet. You will also need to follow my twitter account: joeperfetti for additional links to news items of interest. At the beginning of each class we will talk about the markets. Discussion will be voluntary for the first few classes, but cold calling will be fair game thereafter. Grades:
