YCharts is growing rapidly with almost 50,000 unique visitors. We are also contributors to SeekingAlpha and syndicated to many of the top financial publications.
Professional investors have long had the advantage of access to sophisticated analytical tools and market trend data that enables them to make informed, timely investing choices and minimize the risk of loss. Now, for the first time, YCharts is making these same powerful tools and data available to the individual investor.
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
