New Stock Summary Page Feature: Performance Charts

We have added a new section to our popular stock summary page

We are pleased to announce that we added a new "Performance Charts" section of our popular stock summary pages.

GuruFocus' stock summary pages contain a wide range of information for a stock, including financial strength measures, profitability measures, our exclusive GF Valuation Line and much more. Figure 1 illustrates a sample summary page for Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB).

New "Performance" section shows stock performance compared with competitors

Figure 2 illustrates a sample "Performance" chart for Facebook and competitors like Google parent Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL)(NASDAQ:GOOG) and China-based NetEase Inc. (NASDAQ:NTES).


Figure 2

The "Performance" section contains a performance chart, annualized returns over specific time periods and the total return of the stocks each year over the past 10 years.

As Figure 2 illustrates, Facebook returned a cumulative return of approximately 105.8% over the past five years, compared with Alphabet's return of approximately 131.5% and NetEase's return of approximately 139.4% over the same period. On an annualized basis, Facebook, Alphabet and NetEase returned 19.42%, 19.89% and 31.69% over the past five years.

You can add other stocks to the performance chart

You can add other stocks to the chart by either entering the stock ticker in the "Add ticker" field or using the "Compare" drop-down menu. Figure 3 illustrates the "Add ticker" command for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

The "Compare" drop-down menu allows you to add other competitors to the chart. For example, Figure 4 illustrates a chart that adds Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) and Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) into the "Performance" chart.

Very good feature and kudo's to the development team. I assume the returns include dividends. One suggestion is also to add the ability to specify a particular time period, i.e., from and to dates rather than just years.
