The end result of such analysis is to trigger a buy or sell or hold decision.
To make net return on investing capital in the stock market, you need to make a decision to buy and then make another decision to sell to realize the profit or to hold for the coming stock dividend.
Two questions to ask yourself:
- Does focusing on more and more stock analysis lead you to a firmer and easier decision-making to buy or sell stocks.
- Since you have started to step up your stock analysis (fundamental or technical or both) further and deeper, does it really help to step up your total net returns on your investing capital too?
Nothing could be further from reality. More analysis may not necessary means more net returns for some retail investors as more analysis may not help to make decision-making easier but may actually make it even harder to decide when to buy or sell.
Switch to Investing
If you haven't been making more money from the stock market with more stock analysis, may be it is time for you to cut down on stock analysis to make it simpler and easier to make decision and start investing.
When you start to focus on the investing part, you will tend to focus more and more on money, portfolio and risk management. Soon you will realize that stock analysis is just one part of a much bigger picture of successful investing.
