What You’ll Learn In This Video

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to find all the information you need to value companies and build financial models – from deal commentary to equity research to historical financial performance.

Hey there,

Welcome to our third hidden, bonus tutorial. We don’t openly advertise this one because we like to reward you for paying close attention to your email and opening messages from us.

In this lesson, I’m going to tackle a common point of frustration in interviews, case studies, and even on the job: how to find the information you need for valuations and financial models.

Here’s what we’ll cover in the video above:

-How to find company descriptions and historical financial statements.

-How to track down public comps and precedent transactions for use in valuations.

-How to find equity research for public companies – even if you don’t work at a bank.

-How to come up with investment ideas, research them, and pitch stocks in interviews.

Enjoy, and make sure you also check out our quick reference guide to finding model/valuation information as well!
