Topics include models of shareholder value, a comparison of accrual accounting and discounted cash flow approaches to valuation, the analysis of profitability, growth and value generation in a firm, diagnosing accounting quality, and the determination of price/earnings (P/E) and market-to-book (P/B) ratios.
