Introduction

Our Stock Valuation Reports provide you with a concise summary of the information you need to make an informed investment decision. After entering a stock symbol, our robust computer model will create graphs of the company's profitability, valuation, and growth rates, all things that may normally take you hours to research and create. You don't need to be a professional investor to make use of this information either, the paragraphs below each graph will tell you whether the output is pointing towards a good or bad stock.

If you want to compare your prospective investment against other prospective investments, we have you covered. In our comparative report section, you can enter up to four ticker symbols, and see how they measure up against one another. This report will give you comparative valuations, comparative profitability margins, and even comparative growth rates. Short paragraphs below each graph will explain how to use this information to make the best investment possible.

You don't need advanced excel skills, investment knowledge or even a high priced subscription service to analyze investments anymore.

Report Fundamentals

Since you have chosen an annual time period, the data here is from the last fiscal company year. The advantage of this approach is that a more smoothed version of the numbers are presented, however; if you believe the company is seasonal, meaning it depends on a particular season for the majority of its sales, then a quarterly graph of these numbers may be desirable.

Revenue

Gross Profit
$241$317$407$564
Net Income

Our graph above shows the annual Revenue, Gross Profit, and Net Profit over time. Steady growth in all of the bars is what you are looking for here, as well as positive net income. A shorter distance between the height of the Revenue bar and the Gross Profit/Net Profit bars shows high margins for the company. Revenue is simply sales, Gross Profit is the money that the company receives after selling a product, while net profit is the money the company takes home at the end of the year after accounting for all expenses.

This graph shows the growth rates of the Gross Profit (Red), the Net Profit (Orange) and Revenue (Blue). What this illustrates is by what percent each of these numbers grew year on year. You are looking for positive growth in each of these categories. The difference between this graph and the pure revenue graph is that here we show what by what percentage Gross Profit, Net Profit and Revenue grew as compared to the previous year.

This graph gives an annual vision of the companies margins. The Gross Margin shows how much money the company keeps after considering only the cost of producing the item (manufacturing and inputs), while the Net Profit Margin shows the percentage of sales that the company keeps after accounting for all expenses (salaries, rent, administrative etc). The higher these margins are the better. The distance between the green and orange bars shows the concentration of expenses. If the orange bar is significantly higher than the green bar, the bulk of the expenses for the company come from non production related costs.

Valuations for a company can be very important, listed above are three of the most commonly used financial metrics; Price to Sales, Price to Earnings and Price to Book Value. The Price to Sales ratio measures how much premium the market has placed on the stock compared to its revenue. Price to Earnings, by far the most popular valuation method, is the premium that the market is placing on the company’s net profit. This should be the highest number of the group. The Price to Book Value is the premium that the market is placing on the company’s total equity, or what is left over when the liabilities of the company are subtracted from its assets. You should see a hump form in this graph, with P/S and P/BV being significantly lower than P/E.
