Abstract:In modern finance, machine learning is getting more and more attention due to the massive data increase in recent years. The goal of this thesis was to find out if machine learning is helping investment analysts with making investment decisions. For that goal, different components were determined which are essential for investment analysis. These were Performance, Risk, Growth, and Cost of Capital. To determine if machine learning helps make investment decisions, it was evaluated how machine learning is useful for these components, which methods it has and how they are performing. Several empirical research articles were evaluated and significant findings of these were filtered to answer the research question. Analyzing these components this study found that machine learning is undoubtedly a helpful assistant for investment analysts and should be considered when dealing with important investment decisions. In some cases, machine learning alone is not as effective as in cooperation with investment analysts.
