Equities Lab for the Classroom
Get your students further, and decrease your workload.
With applications in investments and corporate finance, Equities Lab allows students to easily and quickly conduct theory-driven analyses using real world data. Instantaneously obtain all companies in an industry matching given criteria (leverage, market beta, profitability, etc.) or do a deep data-driven dive into a company. Equities Lab allows you to create homework for your class which is autograded and then stored in a table that easily exports to excel to allow easy importing into your university grade book.
Finding oddities within the market tends to take time. With using EL you can isolate companies based on any criteria to use as examples for your students.
In three seconds, I can find 38 examples of why a high Beneish score can negatively affect companies in the long term. Allow your students a way truly understand why they are learning these skills.
To illustrate our survivorship bias free environment, we can look for companies who did not have a close of greater than 0 as of January 1, 2015.
These positions, taken on October, 20, 2014 have each been delisted. To verify that our backtest isn’t affected by survivorship bias, we are looking for a flat spot during 2015. The chart will eventually pick up new investments as there are a number of IPO’s that happened after 2015.
