Q&A by Don Bright


I am part of a small group of traders and investors, most of us pretty new to the business. We spend a lot of time doing research, checking charts, fundamentals, technicals, and all the rest. A newcomer to our group is telling us we should really just focus on analyst reports, because it’s easier to rely on these “experts.” What do you and your team of traders rely on?


Let’s go through the list, and then I’ll answer your question regarding analysts directly. First, we are big fans of doing research ourselves. Of course, we have teams who share in the work, but when it comes to the individual trader, especially one with fewer than five years’ solid experience, doing it yourself is almost a must.

Fundamentals are very important, especially for longer-term positions. We focus on factors like price to book value initially. The book value (BV) is basically the value of the company based on assets minus liabilities and can be thought of as similar to the BV of your car. You wouldn’t want to pay $10,000 for a car with a book value of $5,000, right? Sort of similar with stock valuations.
