Title: TIKR.com | Free Beta with Coverage of 50k+ Global Stocks
Post by: Garpy on September 01, 2020, 01:39:11 PM
Hi COBF community,

Hope you and your loved ones are well and safe. We were encouraged by a number of COBF members to post here, as they thought the community would find value in what we are building.

We have created a powerful equity research platform for fundamental investors at TIKR.com. Powered by S&P Global CapitalIQ, we have coverage of 50k+ stocks globally. We have financials, consensus estimates, valuation metrics, transcripts, filings, ownership data, and more. Our platform was built from the ground up with the value investor in mind!

We would love to have you join our free beta and look forward to hearing your feedback. Please use the following link to register: https://app.tikr.com/register?ref=COBF

Shameless plug:

This is my favorite website for fundamental research. The main thing has going for it is that all the information is in one place (valuation metrics, fundamental, balance sheet, income statement, CC transcripts) and most importantly, it works for most foreign stocks as well.

While other websites like Koyfin have nicer charts, none of them offers information on foreign stocks, at least not in their Beta implementation.

Agree, great product.

Why not keep it free after Beta and just IPO with a huge DAU count thereby escalating the valuation to stratospheric heights ? Everyone else is doing it...

This is a really clean and crisp tool. I have been using it for last six months and greatly benefitted from it. One issue I have faced is that the security page does not show the current price of equity in real time. Sometime it is dated by a day almost. Other than that, I really like it.

How is the data quality?

It is good, not sure where the database is getting filled from - CapIq or Bloomberg or something internal.

How is the data quality?

Appreciate all of the support! Our data is institutional-grade and is powered by CapitalIQ as well as several other data providers and our internal data. In terms of stock price quotes, given we are still in beta it’s currently last close data. However, we definitely will launch with real-time / 15 minute delayed data in the near future!

Concern is not price data but fundamental data.

And in fairness, problem is not with you guys but the vendors who provide this data (Cap IQ etc.).

Their line items descriptions are never 100% accurate, particularly during transitions such as before-after mergers, or sub-items/one-time items which are not accurately described or transcribed from the actual 10k/q to the CapIQ database.

In other words, I'll be looking at some company's financials, it will say something like "one time item" or "other" which contains maybe 4-5 different line items summed together, and then I will still have to open the company filing to understand what the nature of these items are. And it's annoying and I sit there thinking why do I bother with this, I should have just opened up the 10Q in the first place.

Looks good. Is there any plan to get financial data back before 2004? What is the plan for pricing? Thanks!
Title: Re: TIKR.com | Free Beta with Coverage of 50k+ Global Stocks
Post by: Garpy on September 03, 2020, 10:08:29 AM
We certainly hope to add financial history going even further back. As we grow TIKR, we'll have the ability to reinvest back into the business and continue to improve it.

Which gets me to your second question on pricing. TIKR is currently free as we're in beta. We will always have a free tier but will likely add some paid subscription tiers in the future with premium features/data. Our aim is to empower even individual investors with an institutional-grade investment research platform. We therefore plan for TIKR to be available at a highly accessible price point. We haven't finalized pricing and have instead been focused on adding as much value as possible to our users. But if you have thoughts on what pricing should be, please feel free to DM us! Our goal is for TIKR to be a no brainer value investment :)

I would suggest you create a poll here on pricing bands and let people vote. Many people would be lazy to DM. I think I will pay for it as long as it is reasonable and shows current equity pricing. Good luck Garpy.

Could you add a feature to graph the user portfolio performance (whole portfolio, not individual stocks; something like, https://www.portfoliovisualizer.com/backtest-portfolio). I do not prefer to pay different companies for different features; all the features under one website is more desirable).

For the commercial products, I just hope that a Tier including international stocks is available that is affordable for individual investors.
I don’t need an API Or any fancy power tools. I honestly just look at a better version of yahoo finance.

Just a thought but perhaps you guys should go after Yahoo's finance's market.  That product has gotten worse over the years and Google has basically exited.  Morningstar has gotten worse too.   There is a need for a good basic free product.  Not sure of the economics though.

Nice product so far. It would be good to see the dividend yield for a company in the overview.

I like thi service a lot. I've recommended it to several friends. However, I found that the company files page was slow to update to current filings which I was able to get. Hopefully they can fix the lag.

I took a look. It has a lot of data and it looks pretty good. Still, I won't pay for TIKR since M* for free is good enough for me.  ::) Just MO though.

I can also get M* for free through a library, but it’s a pain going through the library website and quite frankly, the M* user interface sucks. I would pay a little for convenience.

Edit - I just realized that the Boston public library gives access to CapIQ. Cool!

TIKR is a great tool but I'm wondering how people track things like SEC filings. If you have 100 stocks you follow how do you follow the SEC filings on those stocks? Do you use something like Feedly? Or is there some other way to do it, maybe within TIKR?

The answer is simple. (Almost ) Nobody does this (Tracking filings off 100 companies).

Thanks. Secinfo does the same thing (also for a fee) but Feedly works fine.

Thanks so much for all of the feedback! We really appreciate your support.

We definitely plan to build a powerful equity screener and this is near the top of our priority list. We also plan to build a newsfeed for your watchlist so that you can easily track news, filings, etc.

We are continually working to improve the platform but excited to share some recent updates:
  • We have officially launched the ability to chart multiple companies for Financials, Estimates, and Valuation tabs as was requested
  • You can now search through the holdings of 20k+ investors globally. Go to “Track Investing Gurus” and then use the search bar
  • You can also now view LTM data in Financials and Calendar Year data in the Estimates tab
  • You can set the Default Year To Start Viewing Financials & Estimates Data. This can be selected in Account Settings and should make it easier to view the data based on your preferences

Thank you for your support!

Love it. Is there any way to toggle to common-size income statement?

Is the plan still to have a free tier, if so the functionality that would convince me to be a paying subscriber (assuming the price is not off) is:

- ability to populate and update excel with the fundamental data (as opposed to just a copy function)
- ability to create, save and chart bespoke combinations of fundamental data 
- flexible screener that also could screen on bespoke combinations of the fundamental data

with nice to haves being:
- word search all the call transcripts at once
- etf holdings and data.

Just my input to the conversation

I would love to see a feature where we can choose to see the financial statements as originally reported. Also, where we can just click on the "date" of the financial statement and it will redirect us to the original quarterly/annual report.

This is something that Morningstar offers and it has been extremely useful for me.
