This updated, rigorous, and exciting course examines companies and industries using a fundamental and timeless classical approach first developed by Benjamin Graham in 1934. Instruction focuses on the examination of equities and bonds by taking an in-depth look at the financial statements concentrated on the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement, and financial notes. The tools and techniques used are as relevant today as they were when Graham first developed the basis for value investing. Through case study analysis of actual companies, students learn the tenets of value investing, ratio analysis, and industry analysis. This course draws on subsequent editions of Graham's classic, Security Analysis, considered by many professional investors to be the best book written on fundamental analysis.
