How to Pick Stocks and Beat the Market: Create Wealth by Investing in Stocks teaches concepts of business strategy and performance through an examination of valuation as value-creation. This course surveys and applies the interrelationships between business strategy, execution, performance, and valuation: in other words, plans, actions, cash flow results, and forecasts.

Traditional and advanced performance and valuation techniques are examined in specific relationship to valuation issues, such as: behavioral finance; competitive advantage analysis; business strategy; and execution. This course tackles guiding insights for fundamental valuation through macro theme identification, idea generation, bottoms-up analysis, and asset allocation strategies.

Applications range from corporate finance to investment management to strategic business planning. It focuses on the link between strategy and valuation – converting qualitative understanding of company initiatives into quantitative forecasts and ultimate impact on valuation – and the reverse. For this reason, it covers fundamental and quantitative techniques, which have been dubbed Quantamental™ linking planning to actions to results to forecasts.
