This unit explores value investment principles used in investment strategies. Both investment strategies and company strategies are analysed to examine how to translate a company's strategy into shareholders' profit. The unit also provides students with the skill set of analysing and interpreting financial reports, identifying good investment and avoiding financial scandals. Great investment practitioners' (Benjamin Graham, Warren E. Buffett and Charles Munger) works are studied in detail.
