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.
the course is good and explanatory. But headers like earnings, etc have changed in Yahoo finance. Eg: Net debt is not visible in yahoo finance etc,
This project on Stock Valuation was great it taught me, how to estimate the future stock value of any company that was excellent.
Lovely project. I could understand better how ratios in valuation work, Thank you very much Coursera! Kind Regards\n\nCláudia
