What is Fundamental Analysis (FA) ?

Fundamental Analysis (FA) is a method of evaluating a security’s intrinsic value by examination of related economic and financial factors, both qualitative and quantitative. In other words, Fundamental Analysis is a method of determining a stock’s real or “fair market” value.

Fundamental Analysis (FA) is one of two major methods of market analysis in analysis-related stock trading: Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis.

How do you calculate Fundamental Analysis? Tools of Fundamental Analysis

Fundamental Analysis of stocks includes estimations based on many factors related to the stock, such as: financial information and management commentary, company financial statements, press releases, trade agreements and external politics, company customers and suppliers, the global industry and many more. They can be divided into Quantitative and Qualitative Fundamentals:

- Quantitative Fundamentals:

Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Cash Flows (including Cash from investing, Cash from financing and Operating Cash Flow),

- Qualitative Fundamentals:

Business Model, Competitive Advantage, Management, Corporate Governance.

What is the difference between Technical and Fundamental Analysis?

Fundamental Analysis relies on company’s parameters (or fundamentals). It takes into consideration multiple current factors that may be influencing the securities’ price and may have an impact on the value in the future.

Technical Analysis ignore the fundamentals in favor of studying the historical price trends of the stock. Technical analysts use charts and other tools to trade on momentum and base their investments on the price and volume movement of stocks. They believe that the market already discounts for everything so all news about the company is priced into the stock. Pure technical analysts try to find historical patterns for recognizing future behavior.
