AbstractThe study of finance seeks to explore the possibilities, causes, and effects of money market trading. The objective of every financial analyst is to understand what moves the market and how one can benefit from its dynamics. There is little agreement between investors and analysts over which investment paradigms and modes of measurement and prediction are viable. The six financial viewpoints that will be discussed in this paper, though different in content, share one authentic theme: the value of experience. Although GenSpring (advocates of passive investment), Don Seeley (advocate of using financial statements to predict companies’ success in the market, and advocate of the importance of frequently overlooked financial information), Bob Kuberek (advocate of using performance attribution to measure value added by managers, and advocate of fixed income strategy analysis), and Peter Brimm (advocate of stockpicking strategies) may have different views as to what matters when investing, they all derive meaning from experience in the field, whether it’s using statistical analysis, historical analysis, or mathematical analysis.
