Richard's Story

How did you pick investments before you used Stockopedia?

Until I subscribed to Stockopedia a couple of years ago I would search for promising companies by scouring newspapers, magazines and finance websites. I would follow up on this by checking RNS news and the company's website, possibly going as far as scanning the annual report. This was time-consuming and very hit-and-miss. Often a company would crop up on my radar after it had shown a strong run, leaving me worried that I would be buying at or near the top.

Has using Stockopedia changed your approach to investing?

Since subscribing to Stockopedia, it has been possible to instantly access a history of accounts, director dealings, financial ratios, current broker forecasts and the proprietary StockRanks. This gives me a clear overview of any company's strengths and weaknesses. I can easily drill down deeper into those companies that look most exciting. The articles and discussions available are an invaluable source of ideas and perspectives, and the example screens are a great way to learn how to find the right companies.

Has Stockopedia impacted your investment results or quality of life?

The ease with which I can research a company using Stockopedia has greatly improved my investment performance, in particular by helping me to steer clear of the potential disasters that had previously cancelled out the winners and dragged down my returns. I find that I need to spend far less time on research, leaving more time for relaxing and enjoying life.

What's your advice for investors that are just starting out?

New investors would be very lucky to have a mentor by their side to show them the pitfalls, guide them in finding quality companies and illustrate the best techniques. Stockopedia can be that guide.
