 Fundamental analysis

Fundamental analysis is a security or stock valuation method that uses financial and economic analysis to evaluate businesses or to predict the movement of security prices such as stock prices or bond prices. The fundamental information that is analyzed can include a company's financial reports, and non-finanical information such as estimates of the growth of demand for competing products, industry comparisons, analysis of the effects of new regulations or demographic changes, and economy-wide changes. It is commonly contrasted with so-called technical analysis which analyzes security price movements without reference to factors outside of the market itself.

A potential (or current) investor uses fundamental analysis to examine a company's financial results, its operations and the market(s) in which the company is competing to understand the stability and growth potential of that company. Company factors to consider might include dividends paid, the way a company manages its cash, the amount of debt a company has, and the growth of a company's revenues, expenses and earnings. A fundamental analyst may enter long or short positions based on the result of fundamental analysis.

 Stock valuation

Investing
There are several methods used to value companies and their stocks. They try to give an estimate of their fair value, by using fundamental economic criteria. This theoretical valuation has to be perfected with market criteria, as the final purpose is to determine potential market prices.

 I found this great article on the net

Investing
The DOW, Where to Next

By The Tactical Investor

For some reason the Market seems resilient to any kind of significant correction, every time one gets a slight feeling of satisfaction that we might be correcting, the market seems to bounce back and attempt to reach new highs.

 A special note from a trader to you

Investing

a special note from a trader to you...

First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit our web site. Learn Investing will be your school if you choose to take the course. But even if we never meet, we would like to talk to you about a few things concerning commodities and trading.

"... I have been sitting here in the office today upset. Upset because I just heard on a CNBC news brief that a commodities brokerage local to my area was just brought up on charges of defrauding their customers. They misrepresented the potential risks and profits of commodities to unsuspecting "traders". ("traders" because these people probably did not have any sort of education on how to trade.) I'm upset because the report said that 109 of 120 accounts lost money.. money I'm sure these people could not afford to lose. They were lured into trading too often and unnecessarily..."

This brokerage is not alone in using the deceptive tactic of enticing their customers into over-trading. We often warn new and fellow traders that some brokerages feel it is more important to stick their clients with as many commissions as they possibly can rather than allowing traders to act according to their own methods and risk tolerances.

So are we trying to talk you out of trading commodities? Of course not! We love to trade - it's what we do! But let us make this clear those "traders" lost their money because they did not make their own trading decisions! They had no trading plan. This is why we want to stress how important it is that we -- as traders -- learn to rely on our own trading decisions and trade within our own risk tolerances.
