My major in college was Finance, where I learned how to analyze stocks from a fundamental point of view. I’m still mostly a fundamental analyst, but in recent years, I have begun incorporating some technical analysis into my stock research. And having interviewed many financial pros through my work with the Money Show, I’ve discovered that most analysts—especially those that hold stocks, rather than trade them—use a combination of both types of analyses.
Now, you can get advice about how to leverage both methods of analysis to optimize your investing choices—in our Premium Report Comparing Fundamental and Technical Analysis.
Fundamental analysis focuses on the company, as well as sector, market, and economic events. Fundamental analysis looks at the company’s future prospects and estimates the value of its shares, based on a wide variety of factors—including historical and forecasted financial ratios, competition, company management, prospects for its industry, and current and future economic developments.
On the other hand, technical analysis doesn’t give two cents about the value of a company, its financial characteristics, or who runs it. Instead, technical analysts simply focus on supply and demand in the market to forecast future stock prices.
In Comparing Fundamental and Technical Analysis, you’ll learn about the seven key metrics that fundamental analysis relies on for reviewing prospective stock choices:
- Institutional Activity: Learn what percentage is the threshold for not exceeding the amount of a company’s stock held by institutional investors such as pension funds, mutual funds, hedge funds, and insurance companies. If a stock exceeds this percentage of institutional investors, fundamental analysis tells you to stay away to lessen your risk. Find out this critical percentage threshold now in this report.
- Analyst Coverage: Just like institutional investors, analysts can affect stock prices—so, good fundamental analysis sets a tolerance range for the number of analysts covering a stock. If more than the high limit are covering a stock, stay away—and if fewer analysts cover a stock than the low end of the range, likewise stay away (you don’t want to wait a long time for price appreciation either). Discover this key range when you read this report now.
