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.

New Visuals for Portfolio Dividends
Visualization is often easier to understand than numbers. Hence over the weekend, I took time out to add more graphs that would allow you to visualize dividends generated by your portfolio and answer questions about them at a quick glance. 1) Are your dividends growing over the years? What about the cost yield? 2) Are you over-reliant on a particular sector, industry, or stock? These new graphs allowed ...
Close Price vs Last Traded Price
All along, I have naively displayed "Last Traded Price" and used it for all computations in StocksCafe without much consideration. That is until recently, when a user brought to my attention the difference between "Last Traded Price" and "Close Price". This led me to spend time learning about it and ultimately switch to using "Close Price" in StocksCafe instead. Close Price vs Last Traded Price Most ...
