Business, Legal & Accounting Glossary
The primary purpose of quantitative analysis is to employ quantifiable attributes of a particular company in order to determine its security’s or market’s value. To do so, quantitative analysis practitioners gather and analyze data such as profit and loss statements, company assets, market share, and earnings records. Quantitative analysis may also involve such characteristics as company liabilities, sales figures, trading trends, and alike. Unlike qualitative analysis, which may consider more uncertain factors like the quality of management, branding, and intrinsic value, quantitative analysis looks only at measurable facets. Thus, technical analysis, which employs mathematical models, would be considered part of quantitative analysis.
