What is Financial Analysis?

Financial Analysis sheds light on a company's performance using all the available financial data. Everything about finances is valuable information, and the ability to examine how the movement of money affects business operations. Financial analysts are often the backbone of a company. They use their knowledge to direct business decisions and create long term stability. Financial analysts use historical data to facilitate decision making and make projections about the future.
