Stock selection is a dilemma for most of the investors. You are unable to understand which stocks to select or what the right way for stock selection is. Going by what you hear, you may buy stocks that can be either overvalued or undervalued.

Being a long-term investor, you may want to hold quality stocks for the future that can help you with long-term wealth creation. But here, picking up stocks randomly does not help.

You need to take a structured approach, and you need to learn the entire psychology of a stock, right from understanding the intrinsic value of the stock to a detailed understanding of each of the components mentioned in the company's financial statements. 

Here, you will also be required to learn the various ratios, and most importantly, you will have to understand the financials of the company. 

There are situations where you research a stock, buy it & hold it as a long-term investment to gain good future returns, but over a period of time, you realise that the valuation of the stock is overpriced. Thereby making your investment decision wrong & you fail to gain the decided returns from that stock. 

However, if you understand the intrinsic value of a stock, you can diversify your portfolio by selecting stocks from fundamentally strong sectors. This will allow you to have a more strategic approach towards investing. 

We have created a stock valuation course to provide you with a strong foundation and rationale for your investment choices. It will give you the skills necessary to understand the market without being influenced by market noise or emotional reactions.

Stock Valuation Made Easy is a self-paced course that will help you identify the fair value of a stock. This course will help you by providing a practical and in-depth understanding of financial statements. At the end of the course, you will be able to understand the value drivers and make decisions unaffected by short-term price changes.
