FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSIS Definition

Bookmark and Share

FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSIS is a method used to evaluate the worth of a security by studying the financial data of the issuer. Performing fundamental analysis will teach you a lot about a company, but virtually nothing about how it will perform in the stock market. Apply this analysis on two competing companies or in comparison to its industry and it becomes clearer which the best investment choice is. See FUNDAMENTALS.
