Many people would like to know how to go about valuing stocks and shares and investing in the stock market but the terminology and concepts can be confusing and intimidating. This course is an introduction to valuation and investing and aims to take the fear-factor out of stocks and shares by explaining the concepts behind valuing and investing in a clear and simple manner.

The course covers concepts such as Income Statements, Return On Assets (ROA), Return On Equity (ROE), Price-to-Earnings ratio, depreciation, amortization and many others. This course will be of great interest to business and finance professionals who would like to learn more about, or refresh their knowledge of, valuing and investing in stocks and shares, and to learners who would like to know more about the concepts and strategies behind investing.
