Fundamental analysis: Asset valuation part 1

Fundamental analysis is a cornerstone of investing. By using historical and present data, fundamental analysis of a business involves analyzing its financial statements and health, its management and competitive advantages, and its competitors and markets.

When applied to futures and forex, it focuses on the overall state of the economy, interest rates, production, earnings, and management. When analyzing a stock, futures contract, or currency using fundamental analysis there are two basic approaches one can use; bottom up analysis and top down analysis.


  • To evaluate its management and make internal business decisions
  • To make a projection on its business performance
  • To evaluate its management and make internal business decisions
  • To calculate its credit risk

The biggest factor of fundamental analysis involves delving into the financial statements (also known as quantitative analysis). This involves looking at revenue, expenses, assets, liabilities and all the other financial aspects of a company. Fundamental analysts look at this information to gain insight on a company's future performance.




At our next meet up we will explore a detailed study on Fundamental analysis. This will be part 1 of a 3 part series, the next two meetings will follow up with Charting and Technical analysis. During the second half of the presentation professional trader, Ivan Brown, will break down specifics while looking at various market charts. Everyone is welcome to attend; novice investors and seasoned vets will both have a great time.
