Investment decisions are the most vital decisions for any business corporation. The success or failure of a business and also its growth highly rely on these decisions. The world has witnessed unprecedented growth in financial markets over the past few decades. Investment in financial assets is seen as the most prospective investment by corporations as well as individuals. In India, the security markets have grown parallel with the Indian economy. New innovative financial tools were introduced in the security market in the last two decades. Looking at the prospects of growth many individual investors have also diverted their savings to the security markets, which increased the capital flow in the economy.

In the first chapter the concept of ‘Time value of money’ is explained. It begins with an understanding of the concept of interest and further explains the computation of Simple interest & Compound interest. The concept of present value and future value are discussed in detail in the concluding part of the chapter.  The investment decisions are totally dependent on the time value of the cash flows arising from the investment decision and therefore a clear understanding of the concept is necessary.

The second chapter deals with ‘Annuity’.Various types of annuity are explained with the computation of their present value and future value. The chapter includes computation of ordinary annuity, annuity due; perpetuities, etc with detail explanation and its computation. The chapter also includes a discussion on the computation method of cash flow with uneven cash flow streams.

The cash flow in the form of a dividend from an equity share is uneven and variable. Thus their valuation is complex and needs a detailed understanding of the methods.

The method of interpretation of financial data is explained in a very simple layman language. Although the chapter gives just the insights into the security market, the objective was to give an overall idea of the ways in which stock market data is presented and analyzed.
