Selecting Graph Items
Selecting items to populate the graph are done so in the drop-downs to the left of the graph area. Each bar is an expandable column and gives you a plethora of options to choose from so you can perform your own comparative analysis between items.
There are 4 graphs available in FUN Graphs:
- Per Share Graph
- Ratios Graph
- Percentage Graph
- In Millions Graph
At any point, you can switch easily between the 4 graphs by clicking on the tabs above the graph area, and below the ticker search bar. Each of these 4 graphs display different information to help you analyze a company quicker and more in depth.
Selecting Yearly or Quarterly graphs
It is extremely easy to switch between Yearly and Quarterly Graphs. Simply click on the tab and the graphs will instantly redraw with the corresponding data.
The Yearly graphs show up to 20 years of data, and the Quarterly graphs show up to 8 quarters.
Selecting Line or Bar Graphs and Arithmetic or Logarithmic Graphs
You also have the option to look at FUN Graphs as bar graphs or line graphs, coupled with arithmetic or logarithmic graphs. To do so, click on the icons located above the graph, and the graph will instantly redraw.
Just like Portfolio Review, you can save a preset so your FUN Graphs will always have the same items graphed whenever you view them. This is helpful because it allows you to look at the specific items you want without having to add/remove them from the default graph.
To save your view, click the Save My View button located above the graph.
