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.

Portfolio Changes: Current Cost vs Closed Cost
Wrong Total Cost Recently, a user highlighted that Total Cost in StocksCafe was computed wrongly and he (I assumed it's a he based on the username) is correct. I previously computed Total Cost as "Sum of [buy price x number of shares] for each stock currently in portfolio". However, this is inaccurate as he has pointed out, and I agree. Therefore I have changed the definitions of Total Cost and also ...
A Quick Update
It has been a week since the survey. Thank you to all who responded to the survey. The survey results are quite open to interpretation. If we simply look at the absolute number of people willing to pay to keep SGXcafe going, the logical choice would be to close SGXcafe as it is far from sufficient. However, if we look at the percentage of people willing to pay, it is quite encouraging as 42% of the ...
