We are dedicated here at Stockopedia to creating the kind of tools that our subscribers need to make better decisions in the markets. But in our dedication to generate the best toolkit for smart investors to discover and analyse stocks we had to put our portfolio ambitions on hold… until now!
We've always supported the ability to create watchlists of stocks and add some simple holdings size and cost prices to the lists, but serious investors need serious tools.

For sure many sites provide a pie chart showing your sector allocation - but frankly that's not very helpful. Our allocation report shows you exactly which sectors you are overweighting versus the market, which stocks are below or above target allocations so that you can find your blind spots fast.
Ratios and Analytics
Ever wanted to know what your overall portfolio P/E ratio is vs the market, or even what the overall financial risk is? We have taken the first step towards this goal with a new Analytics page that tracks all our most popular financial analysis apps on the portfolio level (F-scores, Z-scores etc) as well as the key ratios investors need to…
