The FAMINE 5-step Investment Process (F+A): Filtering And Analyzing by Mikael Syding
And here’s a full list of the 16 videos and PDFs you will get access to:
1) The Three Foundations Of Superior Investing: Strategy, Patience & Managing Losses: Learn how a strategy can set you apart from the crowd, how to have the patience to wait for the right opportunities, and why you need a method for managing losses.  

2) Powering The Feedback Loop Of Systematic Investing: The key to investing is being systematic, to manage information without biases, and to harness the power of continuous adaptation and improvement. Since human memory is fallible to say the least, you need a trade diary: a financial commonplace book.

3) The Competency Ladder Of Investing & Controlling Your Emotions And Minimizing Mistakes. THE FIRST RULE OF INVESTING: the upside takes care of itself as long as you make sure to minimize the downside. Every investor makes mistakes, and the less experienced you are, the more mistakes you typically make. Learn the most common mistakes and how you can avoid them.

4) Understanding Intrinsic Value, Statistics And Psychology: Fundamental vs. Technical Analysis. Have you ever been confused about how to combine fundamental analysis and technical analysis? In this part of the course I show you my process (which begins with valuation and ends with an overlay of TA) and give suggestions for how much time to allocate to each of the parts.

5) Controlling And Evaluating Your Investment Style: Traders, Investors And Gamblers: If your investment style doesn’t suit your personality and temperament, then you won’t be able to stick to it long-term, or refrain from letting emotions, impulses and hunches control you.

6) Identifying Your Investment Style: Grit Or Focus, Time Constraints, Numbers Or Charts: In order to gain an edge, or devise a workable strategy for that part, you need to know yourself and your main talents for processing information, thinking, and behaving on the market. This then becomes the base upon which to practice and improve, to develop your investment style.

7) The 4 Pillars Of Not Losing Your Money: Strategy, Diligence, Patience, Cool: Sprezzatura is the art of studied nonchalance, of making impressive and hard won skills look inborn. The twelve traits of Sprezzatura investing can be loosely grouped into four investment imperatives: Have a plan. Do the math. Wait. Be Unemotional. Taking these lessons to heart and adapting them to your personality, you too can, given enough time and effort, make investing look deceptively easy.

8) Pillar 1: Crafting A Strategy That Can Be Evaluated And Refined: Having a strategy means having a system for making investment decisions, that you apply consistently and rigorously comply with.
9) Pillar 2: Doing The Math, Verifying Replicability & Assuming Responsibility: Be curious in investigating reality. Be open to exactly what reality entails, what the empirical evidence actually tells you, and how you can make practical use of it. Sometimes the truth hurts, but better sooner than later, better the ego than the wallet. Don't be stubborn; Look for and allow new empirical data to change your investment thesis. You can't close your eyes to reality. Well, you can, but that won't stop the train, lion or stock market.

10) Pillar 3: Patience To Finalize Your Research & Wait For Optimum Entry And Exit Points: As a value investor I'm used to waiting; sometimes when buying a cheap company in the middle of a bursting bubble; sometimes when holding off buying when other investors are chasing story stocks. Bide your time and wait until the target manifests your desired margin of safety. 

11) Pillar 4: Checks And Balances That Counter Your Counterproductive Emotions: Learn how to defend against your most destructive emotional whims, beginning with the two big ones that all investors face: hubris and complacency. 

12) The FAMINE 5-Step Investment Process (F+A): Filtering And Analyzing: Learn how to filter and analyze potential stocks with important metrics such as Price/Earnings, Price/Book, Price/Sales, EV/EBIT, P/B, Dividend Ratio, Debt/EBITDA and Price/Cashflow.

13) The FAMINE 5-Step Investment Process (M+IN+E): Modeling, Investing & Evaluating. Learn how to build a financial model used to arrive at a stock valuation (for example, based on the metrics above), how to size your investment appropriately, and the key factors to keep tabs on as you evaluate this investment over time (and decide to buy more or sell your position).

14) The Most Effective Key Ratios To Screen For Attractive Stocks: Some of the most effective indicators and ratios include Hussman’s cyclical margin adjusted CAPE, relative P/S, relative P/E, P/CF, EV/EBIT, EV/ EBITDA, DSO change, RoE, P/B, Non Fin Mcap/GVA adjusted for international business.

15) Key Ratios Summary: Features And Drawbacks of Using The Best Key Ratios: Although it all boils down to cash flow and valuation in the long term, shorter term human herd behavior is a much stronger force. All key ratios are flawed, none is enough in itself, all are unrealities that enable triangulation of the reality signal.

16) Syding’s Screening process: A Practical Stock Search; Using P/S, Growth Trends, Margins, Balance Sheet And CEO Comments: I go through my own personal, typical, stock search process.
