When you invest in individual companies it can be pretty tricky to manage your portfolio and keep on top of the news. Figuring out what’s causing stock prices to move and why is a big part of that.
At Lightyear, we’re all about building an experience where you can feel more in control and informed. That’s why we've built Lightning Updates!
Stay on top of your stocks
Lightning Updates cuts through the noise with a one line reason as to what could be moving a stock's price significantly higher or lower on a given day. There’s no longer a need to leave the app and sift through multiple news websites to find out what’s going on with your investments today.
You can check out your very own feed of Lightning Updates - which are all related to the companies that you either own or are on your watchlist - right from your Explore screen.

How does it work?
Lightning Updates will appear each day for any stocks that have seen a price move that's larger than usual. Your personalised feed will only be related to the stocks you own or watch, to cut through the noise, but if you want to check out other company updates you can find them on the individual stock pages.
Sometimes, there’s no publicly available news related to a company's large price move, but we’ll let you know if it’s related to the sector, thematic or general market sentiment. This is really useful for keeping a calm head and making more informed decisions.
