When you’re deciding whether to buy or sell a stock, do you look at the fundamentals or the technicals?
A fundamental analyst would say that the best way to evaluate a stock is to dig into its financials and its business. In their view, a stock is a winner if the underlying company is consistently innovating, generating cash and providing value to its shareholders.
Technical analysts prefer to evaluate a stock based on its charts. In their view, a stock is a winner if its share price and trading volume display specific patterns and trends that have been proven to lead to significant moves.
So… which one is better?
