We simplify stock research by conveying key information in just a few charts. They’re very easy to understand – the greener the bars are, the stronger the company is. We focus on operations, growth, and value so you’re not overwhelmed with data.  And by measuring each company against its competition, we provide critical context by making ‘apples-to-apples’ comparisons. After all, different industries have different standards when it comes to performance.

Here’s an example. Let’s call this Company X, and we’ll look at its operations metrics first.  It’s a pretty solid operation, ranking average or better amongst its industry peers.  Most impressive is its cash to debt levels:

OPERATIONS

Next, let’s examine its recent history to get a sense of where it may be headed.  Here we see that its earnings took a steep dive a few years ago but have rebounded nicely and looks to be trending up (note: it would be wise to find out what had taken it down in the first place):

GROWTH

So, we’ve determined that it’s a solid company, with healthy financials and the ability to rebound from bouts of hardship.  However, we can tell by this last chart that there’s not much value in the share price.  It’s a popular stock and it’s priced very high relative to its current financials.  Clearly the market thinks its recovery will continue and lots of growth is expected in the future:

VALUE

Therefore we’d probably want to hold off on this one, but not forget about it in case the price does drop for some reason.  Put it in your watchlist and come back to it some other time. This is why patience is necessary. Because it is a popular company, the price may continue to rise and it could very well tempt you. This is where discipline must be called upon.  There’s very little margin of error, and more risk when the price is this high. Time to look elsewhere.
