How to make profits in the stock market — steadily and consistently
Fundamental analysis is an essential, core skill in an investor's tool-kit for evaluating a company on the basis of its track record: sales, earnings, dividends, products, management, etc., as well as the economic and industry outlook. It is a value-based approach to stock market investing — solid and prudent — that typically offers handsome profits to the long-term investor.
Raghu Palat's book will help you master the essentials of fundamental analysis. It clearly explains, with illustrations, all the analytical tools of economic, industry and company analysis, including ratios and cash flow. It shows you how to judge a company's management and its products, and discover what actually lies behind the figures and notes in a company's annual report. And, how to calculate the intrinsic value of a share.
Fundamental analysis will help you base your investment decisions on relevant information, not tips, hunches or assumptions. Doing that will help you make solid, consistent long-term profits. Legendary modern day investors like Warren Buffet and Peter Lynch used basically this approach to amass fortunes on the stock market. So can you.
