Analyze

Every investor has his/her favorite set of metrics that they look at when performing stock analysis and valuation. Therefore, it is difficult to decide which metric to display in SGXcafe, hence most of the time, I simply choose to display information that I am personally interested in. But I want to make SGXcafe more customizable so that it can provide better value to everyone.

Incidentally, a recently-added feature, Screener, can help solve this problem. I have tweaked it such that if you use iScreener to create a profile of metrics that you are interested in, whenever you visit any individual stock page (e.g. DBS) in SGXcafe, you will see your chosen set of metrics for that stock. The median value for that stock's sector is also included as a benchmark for ease of comparison.

Compare

Sometimes, investors are more interested in comparing metrics across several companies rather than looking at them individually. Hence, I have also added another feature, Comparator, to enable you to easily compare your selected set of metrics across a maximum of six companies.

I hope these new features will be useful in your investment journey.
Happy Investing!

A Simple Trend Analysis of Dividends
One factor that affects whether I purchase a stock or not is how much dividends it gave out last year, and for how many years it has been doing so. This is because when I purchase stocks, I am hoping mainly to benefit from dividend gains rather than capital gains. One obvious question would be: how much can we rely on the dividends that was paid out in the past to predict future dividends? One might ...
