Allow charting of historic fundamental ratios

Hi - for people like me who are interested in analysing companies' fundamental data it would be good to have a section in the website where for a given stock we can plot historic fundamental factors, such as P/E, P/B, P/FCF and many others so that we can appreciate the evolution of these factors much better. Ability to export the chart in an Excel format would be great too. Possibility of adding the market and peers average over time would be beneficial too.

You already do this to some extent on the stock report with P/e and div/yield. So it should not take much to implement an extension of that.

Please let me know if this make sense.

Great job anyway.

    How is this idea coming along?
    Sounds a great feature if added.

    Can we please have an update on this? It says "started" but it's been over 5 years since the initial request was posted already. Is there a planned completion date?

    I want to take this idea further. Don't just chart the ratios. Chart the *implied stock price* if it trades at the high, median, and low historical values of a ratio, at any given point in time. Gurufocus does this very well, and I showed one of their graphs in this thread:

    Yes i would like to see this please. Just as you can add the RSI indicator to the charts it would be good to have a P/E indicator that you can add, to monitor the P/E as price fluctuates.

    to be able to put PE ratios and other ratios
    on the graphs so we can see what is influencing the price action the most

  • osinv commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Totally agree, having similar graph functionality as fastgraphs for the european markets would be fantastic.

  • cuanduncan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please can you include an annual analysis of price to book ratio (you show annual PE) in each stock's stock sheet - to give a sense of the direction of PB over time. Many thanks.

    When I prepare a PE chart showing PE trends and including a couple of years forecast it can be very helpful in understanding how the stock is rated or is rerating. It also clearly indicates whether a stock is trading a below the average. It would be helpful to have both PE trailing and PE forward and up to 2 years forward based on current earnings forecast. See example attached.

    directionally, understand the movement of PE for a stock helps me understand how the rating of the stock is trending. If I can see back say 5 years and follow the movement in PE (generally I chart one year forward PE and current PE on the same chart) and then I would calculate a 5 year average PE. I find this a powerful graphical way of getting a sense of market sentiment to the stock.

    Could we see some common company accounts rations calculated, e.g. gross margins, current ratio, etc?

  • tborrill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Allow a line on the stock graphs showing both the current P/E and the average P/E over a customisable period of time, to help when valuing stocks.

    I'd like to see a chart of market capitalisation - that is to say share price x shares in issue. This would be useful for both small caps which raise funds and large caps with buy backs. Ideally two lines, one issued shares and a second diluted.

    Hi all,
    I used to create graphs of earnings relative charts combined with price charts from which one could see earnings relative movement, price relative movement and PER relative movement all in one chart. Simple as long as you have the data download facility. Email me if you want me to send you one of my old spreadsheets.

    Charts showing Market Cap v Time and Total issued shares v Time. Will give truer picture of organic growth against serial 'placers/issuers' of shares to fund expansion.

  • mpat89 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Ability to chart weekly/monthly historic and forecast P/E ratios of the indices to compare current market valuation of price to earnings against historic market valuations of price to earnings. This will make it easier to see where we're at in "bubble" and long term value points. Timing of investments into the stock markets can greatly impact overall returns even after 20 year periods with the influencing factor being P/E ratios at the time of investment.
