I would research 'Fundamental Stock Analysis' in Google and see what's available.
When I traded stocks I used 'Technical Analysis'.
While fundamental analysts examine earnings, dividends, new products, research and the like, technical analysts examine what investors fear or think about those developments and whether or not investors have the wherewithal to back up their opinions; these two concepts are called psych (psychology) and supply/demand.
