Data Collection for Equity Research and Valuation


How do financial analysts gather data for stock valuation and research?
Are sources like moneycontrol or reliable?
Are data gathered only from annual reports? If so, how to collect last 5 years or 10 years data?

As a beginner, how do I learn such analysis which are actually practiced in the corporates? Any reaources?


The most reliable source is to get the Financial Reports from the Company’s website or from NSE/BSE website.

For beginners, to learn about the fundamental, technical analysis and many more, Just go through Zerodha Varsity, It will help you a lot.

It depands upon company to company some use free source like Moneycontrol but many time data not get tally.

Some use paid service like capitaliq, factset, Bloomberg etc.

thanks a lot
