Hello guys !! I am a newbie in Finance and trying hard to know the cash-flows and valuation of most of the asset types. I chose 'Options, Futures and other derivatives by John C. Hull' book to cover these concepts. Do you guys think that I made the right choice? Anything else you would like to suggest and advice me? BTW, if some of you are already going through this book, we can together form a study group specifically for this book. Do give me a buzz...

    Hull is useful if you are interested in pricing derivatives. For simple cash flow modeling look at the books by http://simonbenninga.com/

    HI Peakit, Please clarify whether you are looking for a book/material on valuation of a company or valuation of futures/options/derivative contracts. John C Hull book would be useful if you are looking at pricing derivatives, however for valuation of stocks/companies you can look at other books by authors like Ashwath Damodaran, Warren Buffet, Benjman Graham, etc.

    For options you can also consider some books published by CBOE which are high quality and very comprehensive. I dont recall the name of the book that I have read, but there are several publications from CBOE which you can consider.
