Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 22-06-2006Don M. Chance
Examines the role and functioning of securities markets. Specific topics include the equity market, fixed-income securities market, and mutual funds. The course presents portfolio and capital market theory, the efficient markets hypothesis, institutional organization, and security valuation techniques. This is a course designed to give you some basic knowledge of the principles of investing, but more importantly to teach you correctly about investing. It is a blend of theory and practice. We learn "theory" because it teaches us how to think. We learn "practice" because that is where we apply what we learned when learning how to think. The point of view of this course is as an institutional investor. In fact a project required for this course is to apply what you learn to develop a long term investment plan for yourself.
Investments [учебная программа]

The objective of this course is to undertake a rigorous study of theory and empirical evidence relevant to investment management. Topics covered include (1) the behavior of security prices, (2) objectives for short-term and long-term investing, (3) diversification, (4) constructing optimal portfolios, (5) modeling and estimating risk-reward tradeoffs, (6) active vs. passive strategies, and (7) evaluating the performance of managed portfolios. Much of the course is devoted to common stocks, but other investments, especially fixed-income securities, will be included. The course does not cover individual security selection and valuation (i.e., this is not a course on equity research or stock picking). The course is applied in an important sense, in that various concepts and approaches are subjected to real-world data. On the other hand, the course devotes less time to the institutional aspects of investment management and is fairly quantitative. Rather than describe the operational details of current practice, the course atempts to provide a lasting conceptual framework in which to view the investment process and to analyze future ideas and changes in the investment environment. The prerequisites are Fin 601 and Stat 621 (MBA students) or Fin 102 and Stat 101 (undergraduates). Given that investment management requires one to understand and deal effectively with randomness, a good grounding in statistics is essential, and familiarity with statistics should extend through multiple regression, covariance, and correlation.
