What is FAST Graphs™?
FAST Graphs™ is the "Fundamentals Analyzer Software Tool;" a stock research tool that empowers subscribers to conduct fundamental stock research deeper and faster. Developed to provide "essential fundamentals at a glance," they are offered as a fast and efficient "tool to think with." Warren Buffett, the greatest capital allocator of all time, says: "There are only two things an investor needs to know; how to value a company and how to think about stock prices." With the FAST Graphs™ fundamental stock analysis research tool at their disposal, subscribers are able to do both those tasks easily and quickly. FAST Graphs™ are offered as the first step in every fundamental stock research project and should be your first step too.
Our graphs provide the essential company fundamental information you need to know in order to make smart investment decisions. Within a matter of minutes, subscribers can examine the relationship of operating results to stock price performance on thousands of companies. The US and Canadian version of FAST Graphs™ has access to up to 20 years of historical fundamental data on thousands of U.S. and Canadian public companies. The FAST Graphs™ stock research tool takes all the hours of manual stock researching of business fundamentals and reduces it to seconds, giving you critical stock research information in an instant.
