qAuthor Paul Pignataro, founder and CEO of the world-renowned New York School of Finance, takes a unique approach to educating you in the fundamental tools for assessing the soundness of a stock investment. Building on a book-length case study of Walmart, he shows you how to perform a deep-dive analysis of that company's financial standing, walking you through all the steps of developing a sophisticated financial model using a downloadable Excel template. While the first part of the book is devoted to building a complete financial model of past and future performance, the second part focuses on stock valuation. Once again taking Walmart as the example, Pignataro clearly and methodically shows you how to use the three analytical methods used by Wall Street analysts to determine whether a stock is overvalued, undervalued, or valued appropriately : comparable company analysis, discounted cash flow analysis, and precedent transaction analysis.q --from back cover.By using Walmart, an American icon that is familiar to all, as a case study, Paul makes financial modeling come alive. Paul trained our staff in Beijing and is exceptionally well qualified to write this book.
