The process of determining the value of a security by examining its numerical,...
An analysis of the mathematically measurable figures of a company, such as the value of assets or projected sales.
the analysis of a phenomenon that uses environmental variables represented by numbers or ranges, often accomplished by numerical modelling or statistical analysis
An analysis that ascertains the magnitude, amount, or size, for example, of the attributes, behavior, or opinions of the entity being measured.
An investment strategy in which stocks are judged based on factors that can be precisely measured such as earnings, revenue, assets, liabilities, etc. By contrast, "qualitative" analysis is based on subjective measures such as the character and experience of management.
Compare with qualitative analysis. A chemical analysis that determines the concentration of a substance in a sample.
Quantitative analysis is the determination of the amount of substances present in a sample.
(Data Analysis) The examination of phenomena using actual observed data with an intention to explain historical behavior and/or predict the future behavior of some phenomenon. Also see Qualitative Analysis.
chemical analysis to determine the amounts of each element in the substance
an attempt to determine the quantity or concentration of a specific substance in the sample
Analysis employing computer-generated models to identify investment strategies that maximise returns for given levels of risk.
Examination of a sample of a material to determine the amount or percentage of its constituents.
Using numbers to calculate the probabilities and utilities of a various options in order to determine the best course of health care.
Is the practice of using numerical techniques in researching securities, markets, strategies and structures.
Quantitative Analysis is a method of explaining past occurrences and forecasting future events through an examination of numerical data.
The procedure used to analyse numerical data. This may include data organisation, validation processes, relationships among variables (eg regression analysis), and inferential statistical techniques.- What is the numerical measuring process
calculations from measured spectra of concentrations of various compounds in a sample.
Interpretation of numerical data
An analysis of a security (or a fund), with the judgement based on financial information such as that found on a balance sheet, income statement or a performance track record. Specific measurable securities or investment factors include cost of capital, value of assets; and projections of sales, costs, earnings, and profits. In the case of a fund, quantitative analysis is mostly based on statistical analysis on the performance track record on an absolute and relative basis, i.e. versus a peer group or a market. Combined with more subjective or qualitative considerations (such as management effectiveness), quantitative analysis can enhance investment decisions and portfolios.
Method of determining the proportion of different substances in a sample, usually on a mass basis, e.g., the proportions of each fibre type in a blend; the proportion of impurity in raw fibres.
An analysis to determine the amounts and kinds of compounds or elements present in a material.
Analysis based on numerical data. Redemption Price The price at which a fund buys back its shares from selling shareholders.
In securities, an assessment of specific measurable factors, such as cost of capital; value of assets; and projections of sales, costs, earnings, and profits. Combined with more subjective or qualitative considerations (such as management effectiveness), quantitative analysis can enhance investment decisions and portfolios.
the determination of the amount or concentration of the components in the sample.
An analysis of objects or processes which is concerned with measuring temperatures or radiant energy levels by assigning numerical values to the characteristics of the displayed scene.
Securities analysis that looks at a corporation's financial data and projections. Such items include its assets, liabilities, sales pattern and profitability. See: Fundamental Analysis; Qualitative Analysis; Technical Analysis
A security analysis that uses financial information derived from company annual reports and income statements to evaluate an investment decision.
An analysis based on objectively measurable factors, such as cost of capital, value of assets, profitability, etc. Contrast with qualitative analysis, which is based on subjectively evaluated information. Although quantitative and qualitative factors are distinguishable from each other, a combination of both types of analyses allows for the soundest business and financial judgment.
(go to top) Investment analysis based on numerical data.
In chemistry, quantitative analysis is the determination of the absolute or relative abundance (often expressed as a concentration) of one, several or all particular substance(s) present in a sample.
