Course Name: Fundamental Analysis

The underlying theme of the course is "quality of earnings". Many topics covered in the course touch on management's propensity to "play games" to hype earnings. The issue is whether it is ethical behavior to do so or not. It is stressed with the students that it is necessary to "read between the lines" to understand what is being said by management.
