A Stock Analyst is an individual responsible for analyzing the organization's investment, advice recommendations, and track investment data. The nature of such investments varies from company to company.

Some essential tasks performed by a stock analyst are using data analysis to predict gains & earnings of the organization, advising clients on the management of transactions, &providing support to senior stock analysts.

Types of Stock Analysts:

There are two types of stock analysts:

Buy-Side Analysts: These stock analysts work together with the fund managers at mutual fund brokers and financial firms.

Sell-Side Analysts: This type of stock analyst works for giant investment banks. The roles of both types of stock analysts will depend on the type of industry they are working in.

Aspirants to make a career in analyzing the stock market can look upon job roles like stock analysts. However, they must possess strong quantitative and analytical skills to work like mutual fund professionals. Stock analysts are generally hired by banks, insurance companies, stock-broking firms, and mutual funds companies.

  • Recommend investments & collection of investments, otherwise known as portfolios
  • Evaluate historical & current financial data

Important Qualities for a Stock Analyst

Stock analysts must have strong analytical & quantitative skills, problem-solving ability and, be passionate about the markets. Like financial advisors or stockbrokers constantly track the market's pulse for a change in trends, stock analysts study investment data to withdraw accurate conclusions from this data.
