In StockEdge, there are five types of Edge Reports at your disposal for you to examine and conduct your own research:
Let us discuss in detail the types of Edge Reports:-
The Case Study is a research document that instructs users to utilize fundamental data to analyze a stock from StockEdge. The user can ascertain a stock’s various fundamental data points and how to employ them from StockEdge.
The most pivotal part of the Case Study is the View Report tab, which leads the user to the case study and related links for the stock, sector, and industry. These links enable users to augment their analysis to more precision and refinement. This segment also includes segment-wise sales volume about the company and its sector.
The user can also observe a spider graph of the six qualities of a stock and an edge meter score, which encapsulates the stock’s performance. This section considers six parameters Growth, Profitability, Efficiency, Solvency, Valuation, and Quality of the stock.
We observe the growth metrics of the stock, which include sales, EBITDA, and PAT growth. These metrics provide the growth chances of the company from the previous data. These give us the Growth edge meter score.
We observe the profitability metrics of the stock, which include the EBITDA margin, ROCE, ROE, and PAT margin. These metrics provide the profitability chances of the company from the previous data; these parameters give us the Profitability edge meter score.
We observe the Efficiency metric, which is determined by vital indicators such as the cash flow of the company, the working capital, free cash flow, and the asset turnover ratio.
These indicators provide insights into the company’s operational efficiency and effectiveness, which are significant parameters for the efficiency edge meter score.
We observe the Solvency of the stock, which is determined by evaluating critical metrics such as debt to equity and interest coverage ratio. These indicators show the company’s ability to meet its current obligations and pay its interest expenses.
The current ratio is vital to the Solvency quality, which measures the company’s liquidity. By scrutinizing the Solvency quality of the stock and considering metrics, we can gain a deeper understanding of the company’s financial position. These give us the Solvency quality of the stock and its edge meter score.
We observe the stock’s valuation, which encompasses critical valuation metrics like the Price-to-Earnings (PE) ratio and the dividend yield. These key indicators provide insight into the amount investors are willing to pay for the company’s earnings and dividends, thereby determining the stock’s attractiveness level.
It also mentions the stock’s crucial support and resistance levels, which are fundamental to its potential price movements. These elements ultimately determine the Valuation quality of the stock and its edge meter score, which is an essential measure of its potential value.
We observe the Quality of the stock, which considers the future outlook of the company, its competitive landscape, its sector potential, and shareholding pattern. These factors reflect the qualitative aspects of the company’s business model, strategy, market position, growth prospects, and ownership structure. These give us the Quality edge score of the stock.
All these edge meter scores are summed, and we get the final result for the stock’s edge meter score. This score summarizes the overall performance of the stock based on its six qualities.
