What Is Financial Analysis?

Financial analysis is the process of evaluating a company’s finance-related entities, as well as business budgets and projects in order to determine their potential for growth, performance, and sustainability. This process requires a deep understanding of cash flow statements, balance sheets, and income statements. If done right, the financial analyst will be able to form long-term plans for business activity, set financial policy, and evaluate economic trends.

Comparing to Other Companies

One common and effective way to perform financial analysis is to compare your company against other companies in the same industry. Ratios like return on assets (ROA) can be used to figure out how efficiently a company is using its assets and to determine how profitable it is. In order to have a better picture of where your company stands it can be compared to the ratios of other companies in the industry for a better financial picture.

Fundamental Vs Technical Analysis

The two types of financial analysis are technical and fundamental analysis. Fundamental analysis makes use of ratios such as your company’s earnings per share (EPS), whereas technical analysis involves moving averages (MA) and other quantitative information.

Investment Finance and Corporate Finance

With investment finance, an outside financial analyst is used to conduct financial analysis, specifically for the purpose of investing. Using a bottom-up approach, your financial analyst will analyze a specific company, understanding past performance and predicting future performance for use as investment indicators. On the other hand, a top-down approach looks at high-performing sectors and other macroeconomic opportunities to determine the best company in that industry.
