GuruFocus Interactive Charts Featured by Today Barron’s

January 28, 2012

Over the past month, GuruFocus released its newly developed Interactive Charts. We are still improving the chart functions. Today the chart was featured by Barron’s Electronic Investor column. Here is the link to the Barron’s article.

These are the excerpts from the article:

GuruFocus (www.gurufocus.com) starts with the particular, the portfolios of modern valuation innovators ranging from Kenneth Fisher to John Paulson and on to Warren Buffett. It then dissects their portfolios to find insight, and tracks their every trade.

Following a 22% plunge in the share price of British retailer Tesco (TSCO.England) in two weeks, Buffett began adding to his position. Some might worry about catching a falling knife, but Buffett has earned a reputation for finding value at a discount over several decades. Tesco shares have been selling at an earnings multiple of 9.7 times; 1.6 times book value; and a multiple of 4.8 times cash flow—all 30% to 50% below their five-year averages.

Many of the charting features on GuruFocus are free to visitors. But, in general, the most recent and actionable data are saved for those who sign up for its $249-a-year premium subscription. All data points on a company's income and cash flow statements and balance sheet for the last 10 years are charted, as are ratios like price/tangible book value, which are particularly relevant to the methods and models of Graham and his disciple Buffett.

Selecting multiple metrics to chart requires just a click or two. And besides line charts, GuruFocus offers the popular candlestick format that packs more daily-pricing information into each zig or zag. Data being charted are easily exportable to a spreadsheet, and charts can be clipped and kept in several graphical formats.

The goal for GuruFocus Interactive Charts is to make analysis and valuation as easy as possible. The poll in this page shows that 2/3 of users think this page is user-friendly. Only about 10% thinks that it is not user- friendly. If you think it is not user-friendly, please let us know how to make it friendly to you.

Please try the interactive charts here. Please leave us your suggestions in the comment area. We appreciate it!

The full features of the interactive charts are for Premium Members. But as a free member, you can already a lot of functions on the charts. If you have not, we invite you for a 7-day free trial of GuruFocus Premium Membership.
