Introduction to fundamental analysis 101

Hello and welcome to another DCORP Academy course on investing! This time we will guide you through the wonderful world of fundamental analysis.

According to Investopedia, fundamental analysis is ‘a method of evaluating a security in an attempt to assess its intrinsic value, by examining economic, financial and other qualitative and quantitative factors’. The goal of fundamental analysis is to produce a quantitative value that an investor can compare with a security’s current price, thus indicating whether the security is undervalued or overvalued. Although fundamental analysis seems to be used most often for valuing equity/stocks, in this course we will look at how we can use fundamental analysis for valuing other assets, including cryptocurrencies.

So, buckle up and let’s enjoy the ride! Hopefully, after this course you will:
