GREAT short course. As an amateur, i wish the intstructor would have explained the jargons a little better but then again it is not supposed to take you through depths.
Lovely project. I could understand better how ratios in valuation work, Thank you very much Coursera! Kind Regards\n\nCláudia

Excellent way to start understanding fair value calculation. (though Elon Musk may not like the example used)
