I had a $10,000 surgery when my medical insurance lapsed. I had to fill out a form with the hospital that stated I could not afford to pay it and they forgave it/never went on my credit. If you make under a certain income, the hospital should help you get those off, call the hospital and ask. It may be too late since it’s in collections already, if that’s the case, don’t pay it because it won’t change the negative impact since it’s already in collections. Wait for it to fall off.

"Too be honest, I don't like to play games. I needed to have solid information on how to start a credit repair business and the credit repair process and Credit Consultant Association was a slammed dunk!! I'm a real estate investor and many of the people I see have tremendous credit issues. I felt and said to myself, 'What do I have to lose' and purchased the digital program and printed the material at FedxOffice. Well, it was everything I needed to turn those credit-challenged clients into paying customers. It works and this organization has all the information you need to get the job done and their helpdesk keeps you abreast of all pending changes to the industry. You won't need anything else but maybe more managing tools such as a contacts database software program or simply a file cabinet for clients will work. You just need to know when to follow-up with the credit bureaus and your clients again. That's really all you need and I use my smart phone most of the time for this. Ok, I'm more frugal than most but it's really all that you need if you don't have the funds to invest in a software program. You do not have to pay more to learn the credit repair process very well. You will learn everything with CCA, I promise and will NOT be sorry. The website they offer is awesome too and I purchased this later and was happy with it. Hey, it's nice to help families get into homes. - Martin

In this course, we will discuss fundamental principles of trading off risk and return, portfolio optimization, and security pricing. We will study and use risk-return models such as the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and multi-factor models to evaluate the performance of various securities and portfolios. Specifically, we will learn how to interpret and estimate regressions that provide us with both a benchmark to use for a security given its risk (determined by its beta), as well as a risk-adjusted measure of the security’s performance (measured by its alpha). Building upon this framework, market efficiency and its implications for patterns in stock returns and the asset-management industry will be discussed. Finally, the course will conclude by connecting investment finance with corporate finance by examining firm valuation techniques such as the use of market multiples and discounted cash flow analysis. The course emphasizes real-world examples and applications in Excel throughout. This course is the first of two on Investments that I am offering online (“Investments II: Lessons and Applications for Investors” is the second course).
