So-called fundamental analysis refers to security analysis with information on companies provided by company financial reports (balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, etc). Fundamental analysis is usually contrasted with technical analysis. So-called technical analysis or charting refers to market analysis for "market timing" with historical information on stocks provided by stock exchanges (market prices, trading volumes, and derived indicators such as moving averages, volatility and more exotic metrics).
For more information about fundamental analysis, check out the Books & Links section of the Global Value Investing website, especially the book entitled Security Analysis by Graham and Dodd.
