Value investing is about investing in quality stocks that are trading substantially below their potential. The idea is to identify quality businesses when they provide sufficient margin of safety and investing in them for the long term.

Within value investing there are two broad strategies which are used by famous value investors like Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger for wealth creation. My goal is to cover these investing strategies and deliver a comprehensive investing framework that you may use to identify value stocks.  If you are someone who would like to understand the key concepts in value investing and achieve financial freedom then this course is perfect for you.

You don’t need to worry if you don’t know anything about accounting or financial statements or investing for that matter. Because in this course I am going to start by teaching you financial statement analysis, so that you get the basic understanding around financial statements. This is very important for your success in value investing. So in the first three sections we cover:

1. Understanding Financial Statements (including Balance sheet, Income Statement & Cash Flow Statement) for Investing

2. Common Size Analysis of Financial Statements to enhance understanding of the business for investing

3. Financial Ratio Analysis (including activity ratios, liquidity ratios, solvency ratios and valuation ratios) to dig deep before investing in any business

The next three sections are completely dedicated to value investing & investing strategies where we look at:

1. Benjamin Graham's value investing strategy

2. Moat based Value Investing

3. A complete investing framework to evaluate stocks for investing

We will also cover related topics that are as important for your investing. These topics include:

1. How to figure out if a company will be able to sustain its growth or not?

2. Concept of Margin of Safety in Value Investing

3. Additional criterion for the value investing framework to evaluate management of any company

4. Additional criterion related to accounting red flags for detecting possible accounting frauds before investing.

At the end of this course you will have a complete value investing framework to evaluate any business for long term investing. Too many value investing courses cover only how to invest, but do not tell you when to exit. However in investing knowing when to exit is as important as knowing which stock to invest in. Hence this course will also guide you on when to exit your investment in a stock.

So if you would like to start your journey in the value investing world or take it further, this course will be a complete package for you.

Who this course is for:
  • People interested in learning how to invest in the stock market
  • People looking to generate consistent returns using value investing strategies
  • People looking for investment framework to analyze businesses
