This course develops the basic tools necessary to analyze publicly traded securities of all types. Basic models for valuing common stock will be examined, and the role of fundamental and technical analysis in price determination will be examined. Basic models for valuing riskless bonds will also be examined using spot, or "zero" rates as the basic building block. Finally, "arbitrage-free" pricing models will be used to value risky debt, options and futures. Students interested in a career in the capital markets will be interested in this course. In addition, many of the other finance option courses build upon the material developed here.
