>>1091658 People that don't know you won't put forth the effort to understand you if you're a bit unusual. Basically just do what you're told, smile where appropriate, and try to get on people's good side. If you don't talk much, then you have less spaghetti on your hands. I'm a pretty talkative person but I think my coworkers at my old co-op probably aren't really aware of that, because it's safer to keep that for when I'm alone with my friends.
Also, have a sense of humor about mistakes. Being self-deprecating too often can make people uncomfortable, but if somebody jokes about something harmless that you messed up, just laugh and say something like "yeah not one of my finest moments" or whatever. Everybody can connect on minor embarrassments and it'll make you seem more human with minimal effort.
Hello /biz/ recently I've been getting interested in this sort of field and I've been thinking of majoring in finance. However I would like to know about the math of it all. I'm pretty decent in it although it's a very boring subject to me which discourages me. I've seen most financial majors only need to take up to a calculus 1 class or a calculus for business. I've already took statistics (got a B).
Anyways most people say all you need is basic math really once your out so I guess I just wanna ask is this true? Is calculus really important?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I majored in accounting and we did the introductory finance course which covered thinks like time value of money, bonds, annuities/ perpetuities.
It was pretty easy, most of the math was high school level or the data analysis (fancy name for entry level uni statistics) which you said you got a B in.
Not sure what later courses would be like.
As for accounting, a large portion of my course was tax/financial reporting issues, which was fairly irrelevant to stock traders outside pre or post tax dividends and capital gains tax. (I'm in Australia).

>>1091529 when are people going to realise that the majority of these countries will never truly develop? by the time they theoretically would we will either be compelled to kill them all since our population is becoming more and more unsustainable or they will virtually be slaves to us (to a higher degree than they are now)
Back in my day people worked for a dollar. Nowadays you've got your "youtubers" making "content". You know what content is sonny? Content is making something original: writing a book, making a movie, etcetera. But now you can make money from commenting on a movie or reading from a book. Jesus Christ. What's next? We gonna pay people for blinking? Subscribe to my patreon if you want to watch me breath. Jesus Christ. People make money from drawing stick figures and playing video games. Jesus Christ. Every 'Youtube Comedian' tries to be like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You just wait young man. In 20 years people will drop out of medical school because they'll decide that it's too hard. Because why should anyone have to work hard? We'll have no teachers, no scientists, just a bunch of Youtubers. Oh, your dying from something treatable? Well, there is nothing to be done. Watch this video.
So there is this thing called I/B/E/S (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institutional_Brokers'_Estimate_System) where analysts submit their analysis for different forecast periods and then monthly they publish the average and deviation of various measures like EPS.
So the mean EPS from IBES is the typical consensus estimate that is probably being talked about.
The numbers have been widely studied in academia. Both the mean and the standard deviation, as well as, changes and misses. Pretty much everything.
>>1091640 Thanks, this helps and let me google more in depth. So for like a restaurant they would take the monthly same store sales estimates, plug them in a model and out comes the analyst eps. Now the I/B/E/S puts that number into another model weighted with other analysts (on the basis of success and newness of knowledge), then out pops the final estimated eps.
