About the Course

This will teach you to do the proper "stock picking" among a series of given stocks, which is an essential skill for any equity research analyst.

There is a better way to incorporate the data into Google Sheets. Instructor needs to update the course by incorporating these techniques. Additionally, the course needs capital asset pricing models (CAPM) and DCF models to be more robust. As a starting point, it was good.

Thank you

What I would have liked the most is that all the ratios and calculations were more deeply explained since I just calculated things without knowing what for. Also, I used different data from the instructor therefore the questions of the quiz were impertinent. It shouldn't have asked about the numbers, it should have asked logical questions, the why of things. Although it set the basis for screening stocks, there's still theory I need to learn to at least know how to evaluate.

Basic level introduction for the uninitiated stock enthusiast. The Instructor leads and the learner learns through immediate practice. Relative Pricing framework has been used to develop a simple and basic screen for stocks. This is not a final step towards valuation, this is the first step, which shows how to collect data and form ones own screen. Skills learnt can be easily translated towards doing ones own valuation using models such as DCF, DDM etc. For anyone who is new and is interested in analyzing stocks, but is afraid of using spreadsheets, this course acts as an icebreaker and shows that it can be easy for anyone to assimilate data from different sources and implement a simple screen. Lastly, be wary that opening too many tabs in the cloud browser can cause your google sheet to crash.

A straightforward yet insightful course in which I was able to understand how to interpret basic financial notions, and allowed concepts that I've learned in school to be put into practice.

Screening is actually a big process, would appreciate if some more tools can be added in the lectures to analyse the companies and scree them for investments.

I would like to know why the instructor chose the stocks used in the project. Would it be more beneficial to compare stocks that are in the same industry? Also more explanation on the meaning of the ratios would be nice. The videos could have been edited better to reduce errors.

Pensaba que el screening sería con python, pero lo hace a mano y luego calcula algunos ratios. No me parece interesante.
