Fundamental analysis is paramount to value stock investing and being "greedy when others are fearful” (W. Buffet).

Stock Investing

Retail Investor
A retail investor is someone that manages their own stock portfolio. Typical characteristics of the Do It Yourself (DIY) investor include contrarian points of view and modest budgets that can't afford professional advisors.

Stocks may also be referred to as equities. A stock is a share or percentage of the whole company. The average person can buy stock in any publicly traded company, such as GoPro, Apple, Twitter or Ford. Each stock share has a price per share (PPS). A low PPS such as $5 may not necessarily mean the stock is cheap. For example, the company may also have negative earnings and declining quarterly revenue. This is why further metrics and analysis must be used instead of just looking at the price.

Value Investing
Value investing can be debatable amongst investors. However, it is essentially buying a stock that has been misunderstood. The stock may have succumbed to negative views or simply been overlooked. If the market is concerned of the company's demise the stock will significantly lower in price. It is here that the value investor will be greedy where others are fearful.
