Stock price lists: what extra information you can draw from them?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

For following up on the miners I often report on, daily closing prices of all quotes do the job. But a wealth of other information can also be added. 

Generally I use a portfolio kept in Yahoo to provide closing prices on a recurrent basis. For each quote, the last trading date and time come next to the last stock price, the absolute and relative daily variation, opening price, highest and lowest price over the session and volume traded are what you get in a download.

On screen you may choose the summary view, which is in fact rather extended. The yearly (rolling 52 weeks) highest and lowest price is now also added. In graphic mode, you get a tiny bar chart of where the stock price is relative to those yearly extremes. Earnings per share is one more interesting characteristic in this view.

When asking for a performance view, the aggregated gain or loss since inclusion on the list are now also added. 

You can make an “adapted” view where you may include the company name next to the quote, estra’s such as the latest bid & ask (usually this is delayed info), the market capitalization, Price/earnings ratio and the price to book value ratio are also interesting to have … 

More of those fundamentals are shown when choosing right that: the fundamental view of your portfolio. It then includes a forward P/E estimate, latest dividend and its payment date, Trailing and forward dividend yields.

Different views mentioned on top. Here the “Performance” view is selected. (click to enlarge)

Not all views are very useful. The ‘elemental’ view just gives you the quote and the last price.

Some more statistical analysis on the complete list is to follow soon.
