As an investor, how often do you find yourself lost when you try to read the company’s reports?

Do you have the acumen to understand the industry competitive landscape? Is the industry competitive? Are there any barriers to entry to ward off new competitors? Does the industry have frequent price wars that will destroy the company’s profitability?

When it comes to fundamental analysis, most courses would talk about financial analysis, ratio analysis, PE ratios, and efficiency ratios. Yes, these are definitely important, and you probably are an expert on these already. But do you know the competitive forces that will determine a company’s success or failure? These competitive forces will provide better insights into what will happen into the future when combined with financial analysis.

In this course, we will be mastering the 5 forces analysis framework. This is one of the most powerful framework for us investors to determine the competitive landscape of the industry in a systematic manner.

We will go through the 5 forces in detail that includes

  • Buyer and supplier Power
  • Threats of Substitute Product
  • Threats of new entrants
  • Threats of internal rivalry.

Along the way, I will share my first hand business experience beyond what you learn from textbooks.

We will end off the course with 3 quality case studies. Each lecture includes a review question section to summarize your understanding.

This course shall be conducted by an experience instructor with proven track record.

Unlike some other courses out there where you just hear instructors talking endlessly, and you only see boring text in their power point presentation, this course shall include animations, images, charts and diagrams help you understand the various concepts and I guarantee your understanding.

I promise I will not be teaching generic ideas like you must buy low and sell high. Also, this is also not a motivation class where I preach to you that you must work hard to succeed, or you must have discipline to profit from the market.

In this course, I will teach you exact actionable methods and frame work that you can immediately apply to your investments.

So what are you waiting for? Its time to take action! Go ahead to click on the enrol button. I will see you at our course.
