If you want to learn how to be a professional value investor, this course is for you. This course is not for the faint of heart. There’s a lot of material. You don’t need much by way of prior knowledge, but you do need to make a significant time commitment. You’re first going to learn how to determine the level of quality of a business. This requires a detailed understanding of financial statements, financial metrics, return measures, soft factors (management quality, composition of board, competitive advantage, etc.), and red flags. And you won’t just use this independently, you’ll put them within a broader framework. You’re then going to learn how to value a business. I will cover many valuation techniques. That way you can apply the one that makes the most sense given the circumstances. Ideally, you want a divergence between quality and price. That is, you want to buy a company that is high quality at a fair price, or an average quality business at a below average price. The idea is to always look for those mis-pricings. But unless you know how to assess quality and how to come up with a correct valuation, you’ll never learn how to find geniune mispricings. Lastly, all throughout this course we’re going to help you build a mental framework that helps you to make smart decisions when things get tough. There is no specified time that this course will take. I recommend viewing the content multiple times. Pause and digest when necessary, and when you get it, move on.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to take control of their own investments.
- If you don’t want to make the time commitment you will not get much out of this course.
