Burford is one of the largest (if not the largest) firms in litigation funding - a relatively new multibillion industry whose historically strong returns have begun to attract significant investments from pension funds, endowment trusts and the like.  The company is popular with investors. Those looking to get a feel for the company as an investment over the past few years would do well to…

Despite ongoing Brexit uncertainty, the FTSE All-Share has actually been on a tear of late, up by more than 10% in the year to date. What’s more, on a forecast PE of less than 13 and a forecast yield of around 4%, it looks like there is plenty of room for growth - and the biggest success stories are sometimes not obviously cheap stocks, but…

Last week we got a great crowd of retail (and professional) investors down to the Holborn WeWork to pitch their best investment ideas. It was a night of good fun, tasty pizzas, and great ideas. If you’ve never been to one of our StockSlams, they are worth checking out. Retail investing can be a rather solitary pursuit, so these events are a great way to…

I once observed two people facing the wrong way in one of those wave pools - it didn’t end well for them.  What looked like a pleasant chat was interrupted by an artificial tsunami. They resurfaced after a second or two, coughing and spluttering, alive but very wet. Looking at the year-to-date performance of Stockopedia’s 60 or so Guru Screens, I’m beginning to see how…

We should be thankful that stock analysis is generally quantitative. The net profit margin is net profit divided by revenue. A company’s gearing is the ratio of debt to equity.

Very interesting... In future, we should be able to disaggregate the various Ranks to get a more detailed picture. One point I would propose is that as momentum declines at these various companies, 'value' increases, and so the balance of factors supporting the overall StockRank must shift. This is just my assumption, but the share price decline might be pushing the earnings yield, dividend yield,…

Thanks Ramridge! It's a fascinating situation - I feel like I've barely scratched the surface really...You can find the historical StockRank for a company on its StockReport page, under the share price chart (on the new site). I don't think they can be downloaded yet, but we will be improving and expanding StockRank charting capabilities going forward.On the old site, you can click the print…

Thanks oaktree - I'm finding the historical StockRanks charts very useful in general.

Hi jonesj, Generally using the "contact support" function is your best bet (the green speech mark button at the bottom right on desktop, or the "contact support" option of the profile pic dropdown menu on phone or tablet). The suggestion then gets added to our product board, where it gets discussed by the team. I've just added your vote for long term data to our…

Cursed indeed! Quite the tumble we're experiencing - I've seen a few comments from people online saying they are happy to keep their powder dry for the time being.
