StocksCafe x Morningstar

StocksCafe recently signed a deal with Morningstar. In case you have never heard of Morningstar, here is a wiki article about them. Basically, Morningstar is an established company that provides a wide array of products and services to both retail and institutional investors.

With the recently signed deal, StocksCafe will now be getting financials data directly from Morningstar. It is a significant improvement from what StocksCafe currently has as the number of metrics will increase from less than 100 to more than 500. Furthermore, the historical data will increase from 5 years to more than 30 years.

Basically, whatever financials data that you can find in Morningstar will be available to StocksCafe. You can compare the differences here: Morningstar's Apple vs StocksCafe's Apple. You might have noticed that StocksCafe is still missing many metrics. It is just because there are so many of them that I am still in the midst of porting everything over.

In addition, the deal also included London exchange. So StocksCafe will finally have fundamental data for London-listed companies (e.g. GSK).

The main limitation is that all these financials data only include companies and not ETFs / Mutual Funds.

What's next?

1) I will continue to work on the financials page ( example) such as adding more metrics, grouping the metrics for easier viewing and including all features that are currently available in the profile page ( example).

2) The profile page will eventually be deprecated (end of life will be March 2021).

3) Screener will also be updated to use data from Morningstar. I will announce in another article once that is ready.

I hope you are as excited as I am to be switching over to Morningstar for more comprehensive financials data in StocksCafe!

Happy investing!

@seekingprivatereturn Nope. Did not get that. But it does seems like Morningstar have everything. It is just a matter of how much I can afford to pay :)

yhy - Hi @evankoh, just realised that some of the values from Morningstar are not represented well in the Financials tab. Using Apple's Income Statement as an example, revenue for 2019 09 (Morningstar) and 2019 Q3 (StocksCafe) are the same, but 2020 03 (Morningstar) and 2020 Q1 (StocksCafe) are different, as for StocksCafe version it is actually adding up the values from the previous quarter as well.

CaveatEmptor - You are awesome Evan! I have been cross referencing data sets from morning-star separately along with your own data as morning-star is more comprehensive in some areas. Looking forward to your continual innovations in stocks-cafe

Infrastructure Improvements
I just realized that it has been almost a month since I last wrote in here! I wanted to drop a quick note so that people know that StocksCafe is still in active development :) Apart from all the bug fixes and touch ups here and there, I have been spending most of my energy on upgrading the infrastructure of StocksCafe. Previously, everything about StocksCafe is basically packed into one server. As ...

How "unlucky" can you get from investing?
Investing in the stock market is often deemed as risky and difficult by many. Here, I would show how a simple strategy would perform for a someone who does not know much about the stock market and is very unlucky when it comes to investing. Firstly, for someone without much knowledge in investing, index investing is ideal because it gives good diversification with just one stock. Also, rather than ...

Invisible Updates
On average, I spend one to two hours a day working on SGXcafe. Sometimes, the features added are large and obvious. At other times, they are essentially invisible to most users. Today, I would like to share a few "invisible" feature updates that have been made recently. 1) Desktop view on mobile phones As mobile phone screens become larger, there have been requests to view the standard desktop view ...
