Basic Fundamental Analysis - Investing in shares

Fundamental analysis attempts to determine the value of a company by analysing the financial data from the annual report and other qualitative data about the company and environment in which they operate.

Fundamental analysis is based on the idea that if the ‘basics’ (or fundamentals) of a stock are right, it’s most likely going to be a good long term investment regardless of short term price fluctuations.
