Introduction to the Course

Valuation is the process of determining the fair worth of a firm or a financial security. Equity Valuation is concerned with estimating the value of the equity securities of a firm. Even people who know how to calculate equity value do not always understand the final results that are obtained.

This course will impart the key financial concepts that you need to value equities.
