Does being an investment analyst needs to deal with statistical charts and econometrics?

Hi, I'm a fresh graduate and still thinking on whether to pursue career in financial or investment analyst job. The thing is I really like analyzing financial statement of a company and love valuing whether the price is cheap or not and make an investment on it especially on a long term basis. But I hate dealing with complex statistical datas and econometrics. So is there any analyst or other job that allow me to do these things that I love without having to deal with all those statistical datas and econometrics on trend, macroeconomics, etc and still earn good earnings? Please share with me your expert advice, opinion as well as where to get the job on this matter. I'm really grateful for your kind help.
