BFN* 260 - Internet (Online) Investing


Credit(s): 3
Prerequisite(s): No prerequisites are necessary, although familiarity with the WWW is desired, either personally or via CSA* 163 - The Internet .
The course covers the basics of investment types and terminology, and then the specifics of stocks, the stock market, the many types of mutual funds, equity funds, bonds, retirement plans and other “safe” investments and taxes. These are combined with techniques for using the World Wide Web to do research and trade. The emphasis is on familiarizing students with the many internet resources for long-term investing, short-term investing and day-trading, plus methods to research and assemble a successful portfolio commensurate with the students’ needs, investment goals and preferences. The course will be theoretical (with a virtual portfolio and no actual investment advice given).
NOTE: Students are discouraged from actual investing during the course and the College assumes no liability for any investments, inferred investment advice and outcomes, should the student participate in actual investing, during or as a result of this course.
