Free Stock Data Sites to Use for Your Investment Research

Let’s say your close friend told you about a great company to invest in.

Being a prudent investor, you wish to dig up more on the company before deciding for yourself if the company is worth putting your money in.

The thing is you don’t want to spend too much time in this preliminary research phase.

Luckily, there are free websites that aggregate company financial data and more for investors to use in their stock research.

Here are a couple of free stock data sites that I use to find out whether a company is a high-quality one (websites arranged according to alphabetical order).

Jitta

Jitta is a completely free service that provides up to nine years worth of financial data on 19 markets, including Singapore.

Jitta includes quarterly revenue, earnings per share, and dividend data arranged nicely in a table form too.

Morningstar

Morningstar is a famous US financial services firm that provides independent research, ratings, and tools for investors. It’s well-known for its economic moat rating.

Morningstar provides three years worth of financial data with its free account.

It also has valuation, operating performance ratios, and dividend trends information.

If you would like 10 years worth of financial data and analyst reports, you can consider getting the Morningstar Premium account for US$249 a year.

Strike.Market

Strike.Market is an interesting website that combines traditional and alternative data such as website traffic, Google Trends, and Twitter mentions.

It even identifies if a company is founder-led, a trait I specifically look out for in my investments.

On top of the above features, Strike.Market provides patent data, earnings call transcripts, executive compensation data, and the latest news and articles surrounding companies.

If you are into using alternative data for your stock research (especially for the tech companies), you can also consider the following sites:

Tikr

I think Tikr is one of the best out there. The free account provides five years of financial data for US-listed companies. On top of that, it also gives access to company earnings call transcripts.

Tikr’s financial data is powered by S&P Global Capital IQ.

If you want access to global stocks, including Singapore ones, you can consider getting the premium version for US$14.95 per month (annual subscription). Tikr is offering a 50% discount for lifetime if you subscribe before 2 January 2022.

Here’s a snapshot showing the different features available in the free and premium Tikr accounts:

Unhedged

Unhedged is a site that allows investors to track news, tweets, events, and company reports for global equities.

The platform provides eight years worth of financial history, including forward estimates.

Unhedged also includes company earnings call transcripts like Strike.Market and Tikr.

The platform allows you to create your own portfolios to track the stocks that you own as well.

Other Websites to Consider

On top of the above couple of websites we have covered, you might also want to check out other data aggregator sites that are available, such as:

  1. Atom Finance
  2. Google Finance
  3. Koyfin (I feel Tikr is better in terms of features and pricing)
  4. Roic.ai
  5. Simply Wall St
  6. ShareInvestor
  7. YCharts

Hope this compilation was useful for you.
