Watchlist tip #6: How to dive into more research Add to ...

If you have a stock on your Watchlist that you want to do more research on, just click on the name of the stock.

That will take you to our Stock Profile Page and here there are several tabs that allow you to do more research, such as Charts, Financial Results, Analyst Ratings, Competitors and News Summaries.

Under Charts, you can do basic technical analysis for moving averages and candlesticks. You can also compare charts of various securities for 10 years or more.

The Financial Results page gives you at least 10 years of financial history for a company, by quarterly results or annual results. You can drill into the income statement, cash flow statement and balance sheet here.

On the Analyst Ratings page you can see if your stock is rated “buy” or “sell” by the analysts, see what the consensus earnings estimate is for the next quarter or see if the earnings estimates are rising or falling.

This is just a beginning as there is much more you can do in the Stock Profile Pages.

If you are having trouble finding something, try email globeinvestor@globeandmail.com to reach our technical help people.

Ongoing feedback is always welcome.
