FN205 - Personal Investing
Fall 1997

This course is an investment course specifically designed for students who are not finance, finance/economics or accounting majors (FN, FE, and AC majors should take FN340 and will not be allowed to enroll in this course). This course explores commonly-used investment vehicles such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, futures, and options. A primary goal is to provide an appreciation of the risk/return trade-offs offered by various investment alternatives. Among topics discussed will be short sales, brokerage fees, and investor scams. Particular emphasis will be placed on distinguishing between "fundamental," "technical," and "efficient market" approaches to the stock market. The course will also address investment in real assets and collectibles such as real estate, art, antiques, stamps and coins, precious gems and metals, even sports cards.
Prerequisites -- EC101, EC102.
