This course covers a central issue in finance: the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH). The EMH states that security prices reflect all relevant information and implies that investors cannot earn excess profits. Evidence in support of the EMH and contrary to it is studied. The implications of efficiency impact all financial managers and individuals in their financial decisions. Topics include: what actions can a financial manager take to maximize shareholder wealth, why do prices fluctuate, and technical versus fundamental analysis. The course focuses on valuation methods like DCF and CAPM.
