About the Course

In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to compare the performance of different securities using financial statistics (normal distributions) and the Google Sheets toolkit to decide which one performed the best in terms of risk-to-return (risk-to-reward) metrics. This will teach you how basic risk management using quantitative analysis is done and is applied in calculating mean returns of the stock, variance, standard deviation, the Sharpe ratio, and Sortino Ratio. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We're currently working on providing the same experience in other regions. This course's content is not intended to be investment advice and does not constitute an offer to perform any operations in the regulated or unregulated financial market....

Amazing instructor and the teaching is done without any assumptions of the student having prior knowledge, implying every detail required to understand a topic is covered.

Very informative! Speaker knows his craft but some background experience if this will be helpful for predicting stock profitability would be helpful as well!

I was typing along with the instructor and got confused. I was hoping for him to dictate what short-hand keys he was using.

Its good, but seems like the instructor new with GSheet. Need more on explaining the underlying meaning of the numbers, e.g. why Sortio value 0.30 is better than 0.10. Other than that it is good for beginners to compare the stock performance

This is very much suitable for beginners. It could also include explanations about Sharpe and Sortino ratio in detail to get the most out of the project. It's real-world application can be explained a bit deeply.

Could've explained more about implication of the ratios in stock performance, was expecting a more in-depth learning experience. But anyway good content.

Slow paced but good, selective detail. Not sure it's worth CAD$13, should have just asked Google
