MFIN 6620 Equity Analysis (Fall/Spring/Summer: 3 )
This course is intended to provide a practical understanding of equity analysis, which is as much art as science. Understanding the financial theory/formulas is a necessary first step, but in the world of investing, the vast majority of time is spent analyzing the respective industries and companies to derive the earnings estimates to then input into formulas. Students will develop a framework for understanding the following: basic valuation techniques and their application, industry, strategic and competitive analysis, modeling income statements and balance sheets to project earnings, writing research reports, and insight to how you add value in equity research.
