Title: The Best Investment Analysis Tools (and Data Sources) that Money can buy
Post by: saltybit on February 16, 2020, 11:58:27 AM
If money/cost was not a barrier, which existing investing tools or data sources would you want to have and why?

I'm particularly interested to hear about examples that everyday investors don't have access to.

Can you give some examples? It's not clear what you're asking.

Why buy when you can get it free from libraries:  ValueLine, Morningstar, Barrons, WSJ, FT, NYT, WashingtonPost & USAToday
Visit university with free Bloomberg,FactSet,Capital IQ & Thomson Reuters
Also read 10K & 10Q from sec.gov for free

I don't believe in information edge.

I really like TIKR. I suppose some of you got the beta invite as well. For me, it beats atom.finance and koyfin because TIKR supports foreign stocks, while the other ones donít (at least not yet). All free so far, but I suspect they will offer a premium Tier.

Charts, fundamental tables, valuation metrics, news,filings, CC transcripts all in one place.

Does anyone know of any good free stock screeners?

Something that can handle more sophisticated queries like ROIC, international companies, etc?

For daily news a Bloomberg terminal is the gold standard but Iíve found Fidelityís daily news alerts to be strong, I have it set up as a 8:30am daily email for sec filings press releases and headlines.  Used to also use Google Alerts but the quality has gone way down in recent years. 

Credit card data and satellite data (how much traffic at a retailer or oil in a storage tank) are more useful for trading than investing.  GLG expert network and sell side research analysts are probably still more informative for longer term market consensus.

Scraping online inventory listings and predicting index add/removals.  I read somewhere that nearly 10pct of internet traffic is now automated scraping for financial interests, dunno if right but thatís believable.

Try screener.co

It has like a really retro Ycharts for a very small monthly cost. They have a free one-month trial to test it out.

They've recently included the 13-F of a number of investing gurus. It is also quite comprehensive with the transcripts of conference calls and industry presentations.
