Bloomberg - Equities. Industry and company analysis: Function - Financial Analysis (FA)

This is an introduction to the functions withing the Bloomberg Terminal that allow to research equities and do company and industry analysis. Example used: Maersk and liner shipping industry
  • FA function shows accounting information;
  • FA function shows financial data of the selected security;
  • This function can be used to investigate earnings volatility. Recommended practice is to choose a large public company.


  • Example: Maersk’s net income chart shows periods of positive and negative earnings.


  • FA function provides more information about the selected security;
  • There is no explanation why the data in the columns are missing unfortunately.

Reflection based on the Thesis project: the knowledge of which countries bring the most revenue to the company, narrowed down our data collection and made our choice more informed.
