We said it then, and we’ll say it again: knowledge is power. We believe that retail investors should have the same friction-free access to tools professional investors have to make informed investment decisions. That’s why we’ve extended our free tools and analysis to our web app for investors that prefer investing on the big screen.
Here’s a quick overview:
Metrics: A sleek overview of the main metrics to look at when making an investment decision - market cap, EPS, P/E ratio, Beta and dividend rate & yield. We have a detailed rundown on all the main metrics here.
Analyst Ratings & Price Targets: Here you will find information about a stocks’ performance from world class analysts — both price targets, as well as buy, hold and sell recommendations. If you’d like to learn more about analyst ratings & price targets, check out this article.
Financial Performance: This is a high level overview of a company’s revenues and expenses. Useful for seeing how profitable the company is, or whether it’s struggling with cash flows.
Earnings Performance: This is both in the form of reported performances from earnings calls which look into quarterly results of companies, as well as a graph highlighting expected earnings vs actual earnings to establish whether companies beat or miss their targets.
News: Written and streamable news content to keep you up to date on your investments and what might be moving the market.
