Hey guys, I'm trying to do my own equity research/pitches and able to do the basis of it but getting stuck at the valuation aspect of the pitch. I use models for DCF,M&A,LBO from free video lessons via youtube and other resources but dont have a benchmark model that I can relate to, if my models are even accurate to what would be used within the industry. If anyone have a template that they've used and have confidence in it, I'd love the chance to get my hands on them (any excel models). Appreciate it fellas. Cheers

Have you found interns' modeling proficiency to be mostly interchangeable, or do interns' Excel skills vary a great deal? And can this impact the decision as to whether an intern eventually gets a FT offer?

I am a first-year analyst in a quant-ish hedging type job. I took advanced derivative classes in college so I was comfortable handling questions about hedging strategies. On the job, I realized most of these "strategies" are too complex to be evidenced in excel and had to pick up some new analytical skills. I found online courses boring/general/long. My colleagues' code was somewhat more helpful/related to my projects but hard to understand and modify for my needs. If you're in the same boat and looking to pick up some new tools quickly to quick-start your project or beef up your resume, here
