From this screen, we can view the main sections and features of InvestingPro, now let's focus on what to look at when analyzing a stock using this tool:

1. Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Income Statements

These are vital data entries for any investor when evaluating a company. In fact, they represent the strength and health of the company at any given time. And they show the difference between assets and liabilities, as well as capital.

Analyzing the income statement, much like cash flows, proves more insightful when considering not just the last year but comparing it across multiple historical periods, such as the last 3 or 4 years.

The richness of historical data enhances our understanding, and InvestingPro excels in this regard, allowing for a thorough analysis spanning the past 10 years.

2. Fair Value

This is the essential indicator that shows whether the stock is overvalued or undervalued relative to the market price.

InvestingPro's fair value employs advanced financial modeling techniques akin to those utilized by analysts in investment banks or equity research agencies.

This approach facilitates the identification of undervalued or overvalued companies, providing quick access to crucial metrics such as the stock's average target price, upside potential, and uncertainty.

In essence, the fair value of a stock we intend to evaluate represents its genuine intrinsic value. Serving as an objective estimate of potential, it proves instrumental in fundamental analysis for gauging a company's value based on anticipated future cash flows.

3. Financial Health

This self-explanatory strategy is determined by ranking the company on over 100 factors against companies in the Balance Sheet sector operating in Developed economic markets.

4. Rival Analysis

InvestingPro allows investors to compare any company in the market with stocks of companies in the same industry.

By going to the compare section we can analyze the stock by comparing it with its competitors based on performance and valuation. This is a very important step to take before closing the deal on any stock as there's always a chance that you are in the right sector, just with the wrong stock.
