20 Jul: Fundamental analysis vs technical analysis my own experience for stocks

Invest in stocks

Which stock analysis is better, fundamental analysis or technical analysis to choose stocks to buy or stocks to sell?

Being a CFA charterholder I strongly support and start with fundamental analysis when analyzing stocks to byt, stocks to sell, investing in stocks. My financial analysis is based on analyzing trends about key financial metrics, profitability, liquidity, solvency, leverage, efficiency and valuation. A great stock if it is overvalued according to my financial analysis is not a great investment.

Technical analysis is very useful for trading and investing. But the main caveat of it is to simply buy or sell stocks based on the technicals ignoring the fundamentals. It is like buying a used car without any inspection at all. Yet, the stock market can be irrational, momentum stocks with poor fundamentals or a stock price that is excessive according to their intrinsic value can continue moving higher.

Stocks to invest in using fundamental analysis and technical analysis
Stocks to invest in using fundamental analysis and technical analysis

If there is a dilemma for stock investing, stock trading, the answer to me is straightforward. Starting from due diligence and fundamental analysis that is thorough and supportive for any stock can offer better risk-adjusted returns for stock trading, stock investing.

Fundamental analysis for stock trading

It takes time to analyze companies and their shares. But would you rather chase any stock and buy it risking to invest at the top? Investing takes risks into consideration all the time.

Technical analysis for stock trading

Can you time the stock market and individual stocks to buy or sell? I do not think so, but being also a trader I have seen that timing can become better if you use technical analysis, without meaning it is a 100% guarantee for success in trading. There are no guarantees in stocktrading, it is too risky.

Would you rather chase shares just because they are having a strong momentum? And ignore if they are shares of a profitable company or of an unprofitable company? In any case, a profitable company is a better choice not ignoring the valuation of its shares.

Stock market news

“US stocks and oil rebound after historic meltdown: April 22, 2020.

Stock snap two-day losing streak

US stocks snapped a two-day losing streak and finished higher on Wednesday.

Investor sentiment received a boost from additional stimulus measures passed by the Senate and a rebound in oil prices, even though the factors that depressed markets earlier in the week persist.

The Dow finished up nearly 2%, or 457 points.
The S&P 500 ended 2.3% higher.
The Nasdaq Composite closed up 2.8%.”

“Stocks close in the red.
US stocks finished lower on Monday, amid a historic selloff in the oil market.

US oil futures settled in negative territory for the first time in history as demand for the commodity remains thin and storage capacity in the US is at its limit. The May futures contract is also about to expire, which made trading more erratic.

Economic news

“Five million more Americans file jobless claims as Covid-19 downturn deepens – as it happened. More than twenty million unemployment claims have been filed in the last month across America. US initial claims hit 5.2m last week.

Another wave of grim economic news has shown that America’s economy is sinking into its worst recession in decades.

Another five million US citizens filed jobless claims last week, taking the total laid off since the Covid-19 lockdown began last month to over 22 million.

Economists believe America’s unemployment rate could have already risen to 15%, with further layoffs likely in the coming weeks.”
