Basically the title. Has anyone heard of financial analysts (not just limited to bankers, but even corporate finance) using the statistical tool SPSS? I have to buy it for a class I'm taking and I'm wondering if it's worth keeping at the end of the term if only because it will be used once I start working and I can benefit from tinkering with it in my spare time. So have you guys seen this thing used in real life?

    Spss is a really shitty statistical package. In practice almost all econometric modelers use STATA/SAS

    It may have been modified but I don't think SPSS allows for heteroskadastic errors. You can never go wrong learning SAS, STATA, or even R (free).
