What is an Overvalued Stock or an Undervalued Stock?

Determining the value of a stock involves assessing its intrinsic worth based on various factors such as the company's financial health, growth prospects, industry trends, and market conditions. 

Identifying overvalued and undervalued stocks requires an in-depth analysis of their intrinsic value. While the intricacies of intrinsic value will be discussed later, let us first focus on the most important parameters for evaluating the stock value.

A stock's value is often determined using a combination of fundamental analysis, technical analysis, and market sentiment. Here is a breakdown of each approach.
