Introduction to Financial Analysis
ECON 227
Fall 2012
Section: 01  

The course introduces students to the primary sources of information and data used in equity and debt valuation and portfolio management. Both corporate finance and investment finance topics will be covered: financial statement analysis; micro- and macroeconomic analyses of how industry trends and economic growth impact corporate performance; discounted cash flow analysis; asset pricing models (bonds, DDM, CAPM, APT); portfolio theory; and, time permitting, capital structure. This will be a very intense, inquiry-based course with significant hands-on work analyzing data of publicly traded companies.
