[An investor] will do better if he forgets about the stock market and pays attention to his dividend returns and to the operating results of his companies.- Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor
Why Use StockFR?
Based on our core Fundamental Reporting model integrating operating performance and share buybacks' net impact, StockFR provides a quick but comprehensive summary of fundamental performance for individual companies. StockFR then relates the fundamental performance back to share price returns via a fundamental/valuation attribution. Please click here for a sample report describing each of the five sections in a StockFR report:
- Classic Fundamental Reporting chart: A simple but comprehensive visual summary of overall net asset value (NAV) growth, changes in ownership interest (OI), and cumulative dividends.
- Fundamental Reporting Snapshot Table: Shows the net asset value (NAV) at the start of the period and then the NAV, changes in ownership interest (OI), and cumulative dividends throughout the period. The aggregate growth in shareholder value (change in NAV + OI + divs) is then computed as an annualized return on the starting NAV.
- Trailing 12M Fundamental Reporting: This table is essentially reflect a generalized version of dividend yield. In addition to the dividends paid, this table shows the increase/decrease in NAV and OI. It calculates each quantity in dollars and as a yield ($ value divided by the share price at the end of the period).
- Entire Period Returns: Calculates the fundamental return as the aggregate growth in shareholder value relative to the starting NAV. Also calculates the price and total returns. Returns are calculated for the overall period but also presented as annualized figures.
- Stock Return Attribution: We decompose the stock total return over the period into its fundamental (NAV or book value), valuation (P/B), and dividend components. We also include dividend growth over the period. All figures are all annualized.
Whether you are interested in a quick snapshot of performance or a detailed breakdown of the fundamentals and stock price returns, StockFR is the most efficient and comprehensive tool available.
