First impression of a share

So you've come across a stock - maybe you read about it in the press or it came up in a stock screen. Now what?

Your first stop is SharePad's unique Dashboard which highlights a company's strengths and weaknesses at a glance. We've picked 24 measures which provide a thorough analysis of sentiment, valuation, growth, returns and financial safety.

The traffic light colouring system gives you a clear visual guide - lots of red, steer clear; lots of green, investigate further.

Dig a little deeper

Once you've identified a stock for further investigation, SharePad's Carousel walks you through the key financial characteristics of each share in more detail.

Around 20 financial charts arranged on four tabs - Key data, Quality, Safety and Valuation - are accompanied by guiding text from Phil Oakley. The carousel is designed to help you learn the key questions to ask and how to interpret the data. You'll learn how to spot tell-tale trends which could signal future trouble.

We believe that the key to investment success is understanding what you are buying. SharePad's superb Dashboard and Carousel will help you become a more successful stock-picker.

Find your own investment ideas

Filtering, or stock screening, enables you to search the stock market for companies that match specific criteria - in seconds. You only need a limited understanding of financial results and ratios to start finding shares with attractive characteristics.

Here's why SharePad is better than other stock screening services:

  • More data history
  • More criteria
  • Technical (charting) criteria
  • Easier to analyse results
  • Filter for funds as well

So easy to use

Our aim is to make investment research fast and easy. SharePad's flexible split-screen format means that you can scroll down a list of shares on the left hand side of the screen and see the chart or financials for each stock on the right hand side of the screen.

Now with customisable multi-window layouts, SharePad enables you to create data-rich workspaces for your investment research, portfolio management, stock screening and trading. Click here to see an example.

Easier to manage all your investments

Many investors diversify their portfolio by investing in foreign markets and alternative asset classes like bonds and property. SharePad includes information on funds, investment trusts, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and retail bonds so you can decide which offer the best value for money.

Get more insight into your performance

Why do broker accounts offer so little information on your performance? SharePad's portfolio tools give you much greater control.

Create portfolios containing all your investments - shares, funds, investment trusts, ETFs and bonds. Record all your transactions including costs. SharePad will automatically record dividend payments for you.

Choose a suitable benchmark index for each of your portfolios and monitor your performance on your portfolio chart.
