DESCRIPTION
This course will introduce students to the traditional Graham, Dodd, and Buffett Value Investing framework as it has evolved over time (VI Framework). The framework explicitly takes into account the fact that for every security you decide to buy or sell there are other investors who take the opposite position and they may be right. As you will see in the course, the VI Framework as it stands today is suitable for making investment decisions involving growth stocks as well. The learning objectives are: (a) Develop an in depth understanding of the VI Framework. (b) Demonstrate your grasp of the VI Framework by applying it in your stock selection project. (c) Present the analysis in an organized manner and develop the ability to work in teams by defining individuals' roles and tasks and managing conflicts for successful completion of group projects. This is a lecture and case-based discussion course with group homework case assignments and a final group stock selection/evaluation project. The course will also have guest speakers from the industry.
