TCE BidStats

Description:
This course focuses on the valuation of publicly traded equity securities. The tools and techniques include fundamental analysis ("bottoms-up," firm-level, business and financial analysis), preparation of pro forma financial statements, estimation of free cash flows and application of valuation models. The firm's financial statement data constitute a major input to the valuation process. We use cases to illustrate and apply these techniques in several different settings, although this is not a "case course." The goal of the course is to provide students with a strong theoretical and applied understanding of the valuation of equity securities.
