An essential course if you are in Capital Market. A Conceptual course for students across the Globe.


The Genesis

Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis are two divergent aspects of Stock Market. If you are looking at investing in Stock Market or Shares for a long term, then it is essential for you to conduct a Fundamental Analysis of the Stocks you intend to invest in. Fundamental analysis involves Industry Analysis, Company Analysis and Analysis of the Financial Statements. While Industry and Company Analysis are subjective and based on general reading material and business news, Analysis of Financial Statements is an Objective thing based on Facts and Figures ultimately culminating in Ratio Analysis based on which you make long term decisions.

The Void

While investors appreciate the necessity of reading, understanding and analysing the financial statements, most small time investors are not able to do so because they do not find a suitable instructor or a course which gives a logical and structured explanation in a simple understandable format. Financial statements at the face of it appear something complicated, which actually they are not. Explaining such financial jargons to non-finance people itself is an art and there is a clear void in this area.

Intent of this Course.

In this course hosted by PRUDENCE Engineering and Financial Consultants, Col (Dr) Shabbar Shahid, an Army Veteran and a post graduate in Engineering and Finance with a Doctorate in management explains how an investor or any person can read, understand and analyse the financial statements and do ratio analysis of any business to determine the financial health of that business. This would help not only in financial analysis of a business but also helps to identify good stocks for long term investment. The intent is to impart conceptual knowledge combined with practical applications.
