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.

GOOD DELIVERY, in securities, is the opposite of a fail. The instru­ment and the dollar amounts agree and a transaction is completed as initially executed. "Good delivery form" is when the instrument is properly documented in all respects and therefore acceptable for delivery to complete a transaction.

STATEMENT OF AFFAIRS is a specialized form of financial statement setting out the debtors assets and liabilities - secured, preferred and unsecured. This document is usually prepared on short notice and from incomplete records. It is sworn to by an officer of the company and or by the bankrupt where applicable. The trustee often has a different opinion as to the value of the assets and the extent of liabilities included therein. The formalized statement of affairs is sworn under oath by the debtor before a lawyer or designated legal/court entity.
