If you are going to actively pick individual stocks, it would probably be in your best interest to understand the data behind them. This site offers troves of market data that can help you make a more informed decision.
First, we help you interpret the “Summary” page. This is where you can find a description of the business, as well as important dividend and volatility information. Out of all of the pages you read, this one is the most basic and potentially the most important.
Next, we help you interpret the “News” page. Current events lead to constant fluctuations in share price. This article helps you carve out the most important headlines that you should be aware of.
After that, we help you interpret the financial statements. This includes the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. You can learn a ton about business’s income, assets, and debt from these statements.
Finally, we take all of the information above and lay out a variety of calculations and metrics. These can give you a much better idea about a stock’s potential income, growth, and risk.
Note that this is a lot of dense information. Rather than reading through it, you may be better off simply referencing it as you want to learn a little more about the stocks you are interested in.
