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.
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.

The company that I am currently working for in Tokyo has a cafeteria that serves free lunch to all employees, hence during lunchtime, we would get together for lunch and chat. Occasionally, the topic about money management would come up, and to date, I have yet to find a Japanese colleague who invests in the stock market, citing reasons of either finding it too risky, lack of knowledge, or more commonly, ...
