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, from what a stock is, what causes its price movements, and how to get started investing and trading. Next, we'll move into company analysis and the importance of understanding the metrics associated with a stock. This will cover the majority of the first half of the class. After the midterm (see below), we'll move into simple modeling and have a brief interlude about technical techniques, just to give you a full preview of investment strategies. 

Grading is based primarily on participation in class and with homeworks. There is also a small midterm paper and a more heavily weighted group final presentation that will give you an opportunity to demonstrate all the techniques you've learned over the course of the semester. 

How to Enroll:

Please come to our first meeting on 1/28 (180 Tan Hall) to find out how to enroll. In the event that we have more students interested than we have seats for, we will have (extremely casual) group interviews in order to gauge interest in the class.
