Modern Security Analysis FIN 467 Course detail

With the economic crash of 2008 still ringing in the market's collective ears, the value investing philosophy has never seemed more relevant or sound. But in the 80 years since Benjamin Graham and David Dodd's "Security Analysis" took the investing world by storm, much has changed in the investing environment. Working from the simple guiding principle that "safe and cheap" is the most reliable way to minimize investment risk while maximizing long-term returns, "Modern Security Analysis", taught by Fernando Diz, Ph.D., will develop an investing approach that has made fortunes for many in all economic climates. The bottom-up approach you'll discover looks at companies not merely as aggregates of operational cash flows and earnings - their pure going concern attributes - but also as entities actively involved in wealth-creating "resource conversion" activities.
