1.1 -Introduction

Fundamental Analysis (FA) is a holistic approach to studying a business. When an investor wishes to invest in a company for the long term (say 3 – 5 years), it becomes essential to understand the business from various perspectives.

Let’s learn more about it in this video.

In the following video, we will learn about the mindset of an investor.

We recommend reading this chapter on Varsity to learn more and understand the concepts in-depth.

Key takeaways from this chapter

  1. Fundamental Analysis is used to make long term investments.
  2. Investment in a company with sound fundamentals creates wealth.
  3. Using Fundamental Analysis, one can separate an investment-grade company from a junk company.
  4. All investment-grade companies exhibit a few common traits. Likewise, all junk companies exhibit common characteristics.
  5. Fundamental Analysis helps the analysts identify these traits.
  6. Both Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis should coexist as a part of your market strategy.
