Fundamental analysis is a critical component of stock analysis. It is quite accessible, extremely valuable and contrary to popular misconception, you dont really need a finance degree to get a basic understanding. However, the problem of fundamental analysis is that it can very easily get quite complicated, but it does not have to be.
Fundamental analysis is built on the idea that the stock market may price a company wrong from time to time. Profits can be made by finding under-priced stocks and waiting for the market to adjust the valuation of the company.
By analysing the financial reports from companies you will get an understanding of the value of different companies and understand the pricing in the stock market. Fundamental analysis can also be performed on a sector basis and in the economy as a whole.
"A fundamental analysis is all about getting an understanding of a company, the health of its business and its future prospects.it includes reading and analysing annual reports and financial statements to get and understanding of the company's comparative advantages, competitors and its market environment."
