They Say/I Say, Chapter 8
They Say/I Say, Chapter 9
“Essential Skills for Academic Papers,” pages 41-52
Fully explain each idea so someone who hasn’t read or hasn’t seen what you have will understand your insight or question.
Reference the source you’re referring to in your responses.
Properly format titles, as you’ll see above (so that all keywords are capitalized; the titles of long works are italicized; the titles of short works are placed in “quotation marks”).
In a sentence or two, explain what Nigerian novelist and essayist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie means by a “single story.” (definition, analysis)
Be sure to refer to the author’s profession, the author’s name, and the properly formatted title of her work. (It is a short video, so the title placed in quotation marks. All keywords are capitalized.)
Here, you’re sharing Adichie’s ideas, so use a voice marker (signal phrase) to demonstrate that you are referencing her ideas (not your own).
Use MLA in-text citations to identify the timestamp location or transcript page of the related passage(s).
In a sentence or two, explain the problem with stereotypes, according to Adichie. (analysis)
Again, you’re referring to Adichie’s ideas, so use a voice marker (signal phrase) to demonstrate that you’re referencing her deas (not your own).
Use an MLA in-text citation to identify the timestamp location or transcript page of the related passage(s).
In three or more sentences –
Share an example of a “single story” you’re familiar with. (synthesis)
Explain what makes this a good example of a single story. What is untrue about it? (analysis/synthesis)
Explain how we could rethink this single story so it is more complete. (analysis/synthesis)
When writing for an academic audience, edit out any instances of “you,” “your,” “you’re.” Use the third person (e.g., readers, professionals) or second person plural (ie: we), instead.
Explain in one-three sentences what media theorist and educator Neil Postman means when he uses the terms “word weavers” and “world makers.” (analysis)
Interpret and explain in one-three sentences how these terms relate to your work as an academic writer. (synthesis)
Refer to the author’s profession, the author’s name, and the properly formatted title of his work in your response. (It’s a chapter in a book, so the title placed in quotation marks. All keywords are capitalized.)
Use MLA in-text citations so your reader can find the passages you’re referring to easily.

Fundamental analysis evaluates a stock based on its intrinsic value whether it is better than market value or not.
When the value is higher than the market price, analyst recommend their clients purchase these stocks and if not,
they recommend they sell them. They base the valuations on past and present data. These are all based on financial
statements. Analysts look at the economy, earnings, assets, expenses, liabilities and anything else that determines the
company’s wealth for determining if a stock is worth purchasing or not.
Technical analysis evaluates a stock on the based off charts and trends and analysts predict the price of the stock.
When analyst review this, only past data and is based on charts with price movements. These charts use algorithms
to determine if there are any changes such as trends in a bear or bull market. Being able to identify these even in the
slightest margin can be successful. They address factors in the market that can affect the prices of the stocks.
Based off of these, I think fundamental analysis would be my strength out of the 2. Not that I would say I am good
at either, the analyzing the prices and the P/E, Debts, Liabilities, Profits and so on. I also on my own look at the
dividend if there is any and also the dividend yield. Yields tell you how volatile a stock is. The higher the yield the
more volatile. The less the more stable. Computers and analyzing graphs, (algorithms), is tricky and even though
they are less to look at compared to the items listed in the fundamental analysis, they move so quickly and to find
when they are peaking or not, prolonging or falling short, is not my forte.
This class has taught me a lot and I hope that I can retain this all for my own use on purchasing stocks and bonds. I
wish you all well!

“Technical analysis is the study of the various forces at work in the marketplace and their effect on stock prices
(Gitman., 2017).” Technical analysis uses a variety of tools to compare and contrast the history of activity in the
financial markets. These tools would include weighing risk and return with tools like Beta, risk free rate of return,
positive and negative correlations, standard deviations, as well as the Sharpe, Treynor and Jensen measurement
scales. The use of intricate tables and graphs help to formulate a vision of just what the financial markets are doing
and map the ups and downs that systematic and unsystematic risk has on the overall market.
“Fundamental analysis is the in-depth study of the financial condition and operating results of a firm (Gitman.,
2017).” Fundamental analysis uses financial reports from firms that participate in the financial markets. Analyzing
financial reports over the past three to five years provides a picture of the financial and operational health of a
corporation and allows an investor to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the corporation.
Personally, I prefer fundamental analysis over technical analysis. This is most likely due to my accounting
background and my familiarity of financial reports. I prefer to dig into financial reports using key financial ratios to
determine the overall wellness of a corporation. Looking at their rate of growth and their profit margins to weigh
the risk and return of an investment with that corporation.
