Some of you may have noticed a distinct lack of posts on this blog for the last few months. This is because I have been working on something big behind the scenes.
For the last couple of years I have been trying to set up a new way for investors to quickly and easily analyze stocks. I know of a lot of online platforms that provide information like summary financial statements already, but none have the level of customization that I think is necessary for an investor. I wanted to set up a completely customizable spreadsheet that an investor could personalise to analyze stocks however they want to, and that would populate with reliable data on any stock at the click of a button.
Moreover I wanted to provide this analytical tool cheaper than you can get elsewhere on the web. I have now almost realized this vision, and I have what I believe is an invaluable analysis tool, the only thing left now is to see if other people agree, and to test it out for real. That is where I need the help of my readers.
I need volunteers to use this spreadsheet to analyze stocks and give me their feedback on it. There is nothing in particular I will require from you, simply use it as you see fit and give me any comments you have. This is what I have to offer to any would be testers (and eventually customers)
- Free access, no strings attached. If you are helpful this free access could continue long after the product goes live.
- Data on over 7,000 US stocks both listed and over the counter
- Includes 20 years of historical financial statements on any stock
- Built in models and analysis
The only requirement for now is that you have Excel 2007 or later. There will be a Google Spreadsheet available at launch, but for now I am only testing the Excel version. Here is a preview of what the spreadsheet looks like – IS Excel preview.xlsx
If you are interested, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment below and I will send you the working spreadsheet. As I said, there will be no strings attached, all I ask for is for you to use it, push it to its limits and let me know your feedback.
