To cope with this complexity and to derive an applicable asset strategy, analysts distinguish particularly between two dominant analysis methods in practice - the Fundamental and the Technical Analysis - which have recently been supplemented by the approach of Behavioral Finance. With reference to a strict interpretation of the theoretical assumptions of the Fundamental as well as the Technical Analysis these two concepts are mutually exclusive. As a result of this there are a vast number of analysts who either acknowledge the Fundamental Analysis while denying the Technical Analysis and vice versa. The Fundamentals criticize that the technical approach has a lack in academic foundation and is, therefore similar to a kind of reading tea leaves, whereas the Technicals are convinced that the Fundamental Analysis is not able to generate an advantage by analyzing the fundamental value drivers of a stock, because those are already reflected by the current market prices. In practice the Fundamental Analysis seems to have its weaknesses particularly during extreme market phases - e.g. during the New Economy bubble at the end of the nineties - in which the psychology of the market participants gains in impact. At the same time the fundamental aspects are seemingly neglected. Furthermore, the fundamental approach seems to have improvement capabilities particularly in terms of timing.
