17 best online resources for investors!
Each investor has his own list of Internet resources from where he receives all the necessary information.
Based on my experience, I will share with you my list of the best online resources for investors, I will give a brief description of their advantages.
Clicking on the title will take you to the site.
Without exaggeration , one of the most popular resources among investors. Finviz provides comprehensive information for the analysis of stocks and the securities market. Both paid and free use is available. The site includes many interesting sections such as stock screener, news section, insider trading section and others. Let’s look at the key ones:
The “Screener" section provides comprehensive information and stock filters for more than 7,000 stocks traded on the US stock markets. The section is implemented very conveniently and contains all the main and necessary multipliers.
The "Maps" section allows you to track changes in the shares of individual companies, as well as industries and the stock market as a whole. Information is displayed in the form of a kind of table, each square of which is a separate company. The size of the square indicates the level of capitalization (the larger the square, the larger the company), its color indicates the change in the stock indicator you have chosen for a particular period. In addition, the shares of all companies are divided into several sectors, each of which reflects a separate industry of the stock market.
The “Insider” section contains information about insider transactions. The category of insiders includes employees of organizations holding managerial positions and large investors of the company (managers, directors, persons who manage at least 10% of the company’s shares).
Online service of financial news, comments, and analytics. The main direction is tracking a portfolio of shares of well-known "gurus" of the stock market. The main part of the service is paid, but free functionality is enough for the initial evaluation of individual shares . The functionality may seem complicated at first, but even a non-professional will eventually be able to deal with it.
The strength of this resource is the assessment of individual companies. By entering the “ticker” of the stock you are interested in, you will be redirected to a company analysis page containing all the main multiples, comparison of the company with the sector and competitors, and other information. The company’s multipliers are evaluated and compared both in dynamics with the previous periods of the same company and with the industry as a whole.
When analyzing companies, the “30-Y Financials” section is also interesting, where financial indicators and multipliers of the company are collected over the past few years (data for the last 4 years are available in the free version). This service is extremely useful for evaluating a company in dynamics over past periods.
The “Gurus” section contains information about what shares are bought or sold by investment fund managers (the same “Gurus”). I would not blindly trust this information, such a service can be seen as a convenient way to search for new ideas.
Stock screener with more than 50 characteristics and fundamental criteria. In addition, the site has a good functionality for evaluating companies. It looks less attractive, but in terms of its functionality and information content it is in no way inferior to other screeners.
When analyzing companies, the “Financials” section is also interesting, where the financial indicators and multipliers of the company over the past few years are collected. Unlike competitors, the term is not limited, and the indicators are presented for the last 15 years.
Also in the “Top dividend stocks” section there is a list of companies with the highest dividend yield. The service is very convenient for selecting dividend companies.
Website with news sections, expert opinions and investment ideas. There are both paid and free features. Stock screeners only in the paid version. The free version has an interesting functionality for evaluating stocks.
The functionality for evaluating individual shares is quite convenient and informative.
One of the advantages of this resource and the functionality of evaluating individual shares is forecasted for future periods (a couple of years or several quarters) revenue (Revenue) and earnings per share (Earnings Per Share / EPS) and some other data. The information is presented in a convenient and pleasant format.
A domestic site with a good functionality for monitoring and evaluating securities, allowing you to find any information, whether it be issuer news, reports, multipliers, dividend history or anything else. Most of the functionality is paid.
The site has a great stock screener. The main advantage is the ability to evaluate many companies.
Information on dividends is also presented in a convenient format.
In addition, the site has a fairly informative screener for bonds and OFZ.
Another domestic screener for stocks, bonds and ETFs. The information is presented in a pleasant and informative way. Unfortunately, most of the functionality is paid.
The stock screener is one of the best in the Russian-speaking segment, pleasant to look at and quite informative.
Financial information is also presented in a convenient and pleasant way.
Russian-language site with financial news and analytics.
When analyzing individual stocks , the "reports" service contains a company’s financial summary, earnings reports, multiples, and other useful information.
