About the Course:

The purpose of this course is to educate students on the importance of investing and to provide a background to the main principles and concepts of long term investing. This course begins with the basics beginning from what a stock is, what causes its price movements and how to get started investing and trading. The class will then move into basic fundamental analysis closely followed by technical. Lectures will proceed into a variety of lectures on important investing strategies such as Contrarian, High Yield, Growth @ A Reasonable Price (GAARP), Value, Growth, etc. Finally, we will conclude with group projects/presentations on stock picks with both fundamental and technical analysis. This class is designed for students who are not familiar with investing or may have traded in the past but wish to learn more.
