If that is why you enrolled in my course, you will be disappointed. Success in investing comes from the deep understanding of the probabilistic risk/return tradeoffs in all investment asset classes: equities, fixed income, real estate, etc. The course is an overview of investing fundamentals. In equities, we study the theory of portfolio diversification and asset allocation used by passive investors. You deepen your understanding of the theory through an Excel CAPM project. We learn the discounted cash flow valuation used in active investing. We study the organization of stock markets and order entry. In fixed income, we study price and yield calculations, bond types, and the duration approach to managing interest rate risk. Using the learned asset allocation fundamentals, and through additional research, you will prepare a financial plan for your life. The course ends with an introduction to options. COURSE MATERIALS Required Text: Bodie Kane Marcus, Essentials of Investments, 11th Ed. (978-1260013924) Recommended: WSJ semester subscription: https://r.wsj.com/PROF1ub1 The textbook provides the theory and introduces you to solution methods. The lecture videos review the theory and guide you step-by-step through the solution to Homework Part A. Then you complete Homework Part B on your own to reinforce your learning. While you must master the technical details, you must also learn the deep philosophy of investing. WEEKLY OPENING TIMES Our weeks run Thursday to Wednesday. Each week’s content will be opened one week in advance. You will have until Wednesday at 5:59PM to complete and submit Canvas Homework Part B for the week it is assigned in. Each week will be capped by a live webinar on Wednesday 6pm. mailto:[email protected] https://r.wsj.com/PROF1ub1 FINAN 6360 | Page 2 GRADING RUBRIC Homework Part B 20% Projects 12% Midterm Exam 34% Final Exam 34% Total: 100% HOMEWORK AND HOW TO STUDY TO SUCCEED There are two types of homework files posted on Canvas for each week. Part A: This is what I review in the week’s lecture video. Each A file has a “What you will learn?” and “Why you should learn this?” heading as well as a “Today’s Story” narrative to guide you through the material. You should review this first as you prepare for the week. Then you should read the assigned textbook reading focusing on a) being able to solve all the problems in the A file by yourself and b) the theory behind each exercise. Then you should watch the lecture video. The A file is designed to serve as a template for your own notes when you watch the lecture. The video contains the solution to the worksheet. The solution is not posted online; I do not want you to focus only on the mechanics. Part B: This is what you will do at home and then enter your answers on Canvas for grading. No late acceptance; Canvas will have a hard cutoff. You may also choose to challenge yourself with end-of-the-chapter problems on your own. PROJECTS You will work on two projects each worth 6% of your grade. 1. CAPM Project You will download stock price data, compute risk/return statistics, create diversified portfolios, estimate portfolio betas, and produce efficient frontier and CAPM graphs. The project requires intermediate proficiency with Excel. Strictly follow the instructions posted on Canvas. You can post questions/intermediate spreadsheets in the CAPM Project discussion board up to one week before the project is due. 2. Financial Plan Project You will produce a written lifetime financial plan for you (and your family). This will require you to do online research into investment allocations and to develop an Excel spreadsheet projecting your income, savings and investments through life. This project will require a lot of time (many hours and days). FINAN 6360 | Page 3 On a first-come/first-serve basis, you can volunteer to have your plan presented during Week 9 Live Session. This will earn you up to 2% of the course grade as participation credit. In order to do that, you need to prepare the spreadsheet driving the plan well in advance, have it approved by me (as complete), and you need to video-record and upload your 10-minute presentation. Everyone else who is not selected for Week 9 will submit their plan as Word document on the due date. LIVE WEBINAR Weekly Q & A webinars will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 to 6:55 PM. Due dates for Homework Part B are Wednesdays at 5:59 PM. Webinars will focus on last questions and discussion, so reading, video and homework assignments need to be completed prior to the webinar. Tips for engaging on Zoom webinars: 1. Sit in a well-lit and quiet place. 2. Unless you’re talking, stay muted to reduce background noise. 3. Keep your video on during the webinar to connect to your instructor and classmates. 4. Be mindful of what’s going on behind you or use a virtual background such as the University of Utah professional virtual backgrounds. Please Note: You may not share, distribute, capture, or download the webinar. This material is subject to the University of Utah's copyright policy that all students previously agreed to, which prohibits unauthorized use and distribution without permission. MIDTERM AND FINAL EXAMS Exams are not simple concept checking tests, but proficiency exams. They check whether you are able to apply all the concepts in real-life situations and logically or numerically determine the complete solution to a problem. The format is somewhat cumulative fill-in-the-blanks at times supplemented by multiple choice concept questions. The exams will draw heavily on the material contained in homework part A and B. The concepts may also come from the lecture videos and the textbook. Exams are closed book/notes. Have blank paper, a pencil and a calculator ready. A link to a blank Excel sheet will be in the exam instructions. Each exam will be open for 2 hours. The exams will be proctored by me via Zoom at 6pm-8pm on specified dates. If you have a U- sanctioned conflict, you are required to schedule a different time to take the exam that same day at a different time; do it now please. DISCUSSION BOARDS I will post investment topics on the discussion board throughout the course. Please share thoughts on the topic and reply to others’ ideas for up to 2% extra credit (based on quality of analysis). If you subscribe to the WSJ, you might be able to come up with your topics to post. https://brand.utah.edu/communications/virtual-meeting-backgrounds/ FINAN 6360 | Page 4 UNIVERSITY OF UTAH POLICIES Americans with Disabilities Act Statement The University of Utah seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services and activities for people with disabilities.

Arrangements with the Dream Center will not jeopardize your student status, your financial aid, or any other part of your residence.

It is my intent to present materials and activities that are respectful of diversity: gender, sexuality, disability, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, and culture. Your suggestions are encouraged and appreciated. Please let me know ways to improve the effectiveness of the course for you personally or for other students or student groups. In addition, if any of our class meetings conflict with your religious events, please let me know so that we can make arrangements for you.
