Our team is based in Chicago and New York with experience at Google, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers , Tribune and WallStreetView.

YCharts was founded out of frustration with current investor research options that focus on snapshot data, real-time prices, technical analysis and ignore the long-term core business trends. It still takes 2-4 hours to analyze a single company’s fundamental business trends and even longer if you try to factor in other companies, industry performance and economic indicators. YCharts eliminates the manual process of analyzing company/market trends and makes them visual, interactive and social.

We’re building a powerful market research tool that combines advanced data analysis, visualizations and proprietary algorithms to help investors analyze companies and ultimately make better investment decisions.” Co-founder & CTO Ara Anjargolian.

YCharts visualizes massive amounts of market information to identify companies with long-term competitive advantages and appropriate valuations. Fundamentals matter and we believe it’s important to understand how companies perform over time and relative to their peers. We cover over 5,000 U.S. companies and manage over 40 million investor trends in real-time. We’re confident that the insights we create from over 10 years of actual business results – are valuable for users who are looking to improve their understanding of company trends. "Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.” Warren Buffett
