Indepth analytical mathmatical approach to investing. Really helps to understand the factors that go into investing. So many formulas that were hard to follow, even though I took a lot of higher math. If you are not a math thinker, this will be difficult. I ended up thinking, how many investment brokers really use these methods (probably not many) and what factors and tables are already figured out for you if you knew where to look or how to use them. I would have liked more examples on evaluating a security using data that is already available, and where to find it.

Great presentation of this topic by professor Slezak. I'm a practical, active trader, who doesn't subscribe to the efficient market hypothesis, and didn't expect to align with many of the concepts presented here. Still, I wanted to gain an understanding about how portfolio management is formally taught. To my pleasant surprise, there were many gold nuggets for me in this course. Do recommend a genuine interest, some finance background, and comfort with math, as a prerequisite. I had all three, and it still took a good bit of work to get thru. That said, it was well worth it for the understanding that I got. On the humor. Well, this is not SNL material. I give Slezak credit just for trying.
