Welcome to OIG’s second meeting.
We had our first tutorial about a new approach to the new stock. We gave a shot introduction about fundamental and technical analysis. All the board members will give you a brief introduction on some perspectives in these two analysis methods. Our primary sources of this a wonderful website that is good for beginning investors as well as beginning learners in financial market.
Fundamental Analysis, also called the traditional qualitative analysis, is a method of evaluating a security that entails attempting to measure its intrinsic value by examining related economic, financial and other qualitative and quantitative factors. Fundamental analysts attempt to study everything that can affect the security’s value, including macroeconomic factors (like the overall economy and industry conditions) and company-specific factors (like financial condition and management).
On the other hand, technical analysis is considered as a quantitative analysis. It is a method of evaluating securities by analyzing statistics generated by market activity, such as past prices and volume. Technical analysts do not attempt to measure a security’s intrinsic value, but instead use charts and other tools to identify patterns that can suggest future activity.
We also talked about some important measurements of the stock such as PE, EPS vlue and analysis about the general performance stock over time. For more knowledge about these two methods, you can go the website of Investpedia to watch many examples and videos to explain the difference by simple demonstrations.
Even though there are many indicators in both analysis methods. There is nothing that will tell you the exact stock to buy or the future performance of the stock as there are so many variables in the stock market.
