So we've added a few things to the site. Some more still to come, but we thought we would give this a test run.
We've added charts all over the place. Where you will find them extra useful is in looking at experts past comments. The charts next to comments are from that date on, for a month. Once subscriptions start you can get six months of information on the chart. Note that we can't guarantee the information in the charts, so you should use them only as a rough guide. As such we need to opt-in to use the charts, so we know that you understand this. To opt-in, head over to your profile page and check the box. If you have problems logging in, contact us with the email at the bottom of the page. (StockChase Site Problems).
We also show a chart of the company for up to the past 6 months on the company pages.
Often people have a question they would like to ask, but find it hard to talk on the phone on air. Marketcall and Marketcall at noon will take questions from tweets. You don't know tweets, not a problem. You can ask your question and we will send it off for you.
Lots of benefits with this. It will have it's own anouncement.
We've expanded the portfolio system so that it tracks the date you bought, if an expert had inspired you to buy (and their comments on that stock from the week before) the cost of buying and selling. (As well as charts of course). Subscribers will be able to have alerts about stocks.
Thanks again to everyone who helped us by participating in our survey. We have taken your suggestions and concerns to heart and have made plans to update our site again. New features have been in the works for the past few months and should be ready to be implemented in the next few weeks. So stay tuned and watch the front page for more details.
On another note, here are the most popular stocks mentioned by the experts in September. Crescent Point Energy Corp (CPG-T) and Toronto Dominion (TD-T) were both nominated for Top Picks twice this month. Three experts also considered CPG-T a buy and one expert suggested buying this stock on weakness. TD-T was mentioned as a buy by two experts and as a buy on weakness once. BCE Inc. (BCE-T) was also a popular stock this month with one Top Pick, one strong buy, three buys and one hold. Furthermore, Telus Corp (T-T) was not nominated for a top pick but 6 different experts did recommend buying this stock. So look over the comments made by the experts and see if you can pick a winner. Good Luck and Happy Investing.
Thank you for taking part in the survey. From the results it appears that our users are VERY serious investors, and most people have made money with the site. Some people have made a lot of money, which we are overjoyed at. Your success means our success.
Many of the comments and ideas have got us thinking in new directions, (Stay tuned!) Keep in mind that this survey is anonymous, we don't know who wrote what, and so you should take the results with a little grain of salt. We are very happy with the response, and think that you would be interested in seeing what the other investors who use StockChase have to say about us.
Recently I've been asked by two separate people about StockChase's portfolio. Both were questions about where it is. So this post is explaining how to use the portfolio tracker as well as two nice little tricks at the end.
StockChase doesn't actually have a portfolio tracker, as we only track stocks that have been mentioned on the shows, and this probably misses some. (Hint: call into the show to get your stock on the site!) But that said, we've been at this for twelve years and track the majority of all stocks in North America.
We do have a tracker that will track your portfolio (to the limit of the stocks we track) and you can see what comments have been made about your stocks, and by whom and when.
To do this first log in. The site needs to know who you are in order to know what your stocks of interest are. If you haven't registered, It is a simple process, and there is a link to me at the bottom of the page if you have problems. I can usually get things moving quickly.
Once you have logged in, you can set the stocks that you are interested in, in your portfolio. This located at the menu under your name (once you have logged in). You can search for companies by name or symbol, and as you type it looks up possible stocks. For instance typing "goo" brings up 3 possible stocks. Click on the one you want, and then click the Add button. The stock will be added to your list.
To see the comments about your stocks, look under the "Find Opinions" menu, where there is an item "Comments from experts about <Your Name Here>'s portfolio"
From there you can do all the normal cross-referencing of experts and companies that you can normally do.
And after patiently reading all that, here are the nice little tricks I promised you earlier.
