Developed an Algorithm for Calculating DCFs, how useful is this?
I'm a freshman at a semi-target business school, with a strong background in CS (was planning on studying CS before I switched to finance).
I have recently completed developing an algorithm that can perform avaluation on any stock given the ticker (scrapes SEC fillings and uses an API for financials, forecast cashflows by analyzing historical data and growth rates, calculates / data etc). It is also relatively accurate (working on making it more), I spent a few weeks making this. Hypothetically could be used for making a DCF for every stock on the U.S market in < a few min.
A few questions I have:
Is this anything special? i.e. is this a normal thing most funds/banks would already have?
Would this be considered useful to a fund/bank, especially foror general analysis? (Would you find this helpful in your work?)
Any ideas on how I can best word/leverage for networking? Should I mention this in cold-emails or show it to recruiters? Maybe put it on a website so people can use it? Should I make it open source or keep it private?
First time posting, apologies for any formatting issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
