Compare Financial Data for 2 US Public Companies


Last winter we launched Company Financials – a nifty little app that lets you view and graph financial reports for US public companies based on the XBRL data that they have to file with the SEC. Now we’re proud to announce the new Company Financials 2.2 app, which adds tons of new features, including the ability to compare financial data for 2 US public companies side-by-side!

Build your Collections with the MyCollections App


For the longest time, I’ve searched in vain for a collection app that would help me manage my favorite recipes. I have a ton on Pinterest, and an equal number in my ever-growing cookbook collection. The problem is, when it comes time to make a favorite dish, I can never remember where the recipe is and end up spending half my cooking time looking for it. Enter the new Altova MyCollections app: I’ve already started using this for my recipes and other collections, and I’ll never go back.

MyCollections lets you catalog any collection whatsoever – whether it’s comprised of actual objects like books, CDs, watches, or camping equipment – or if it’s your favorite places to visit, your great-hikes bucket list, or your birthday wish list. Oh, and it’s free.

Company Financials App Now Available


US public companies are required to file their company financials – including income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements – quarterly and annually with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These financial reports provide a snapshot of the financial health of a corporation and any investor interested in fundamental analysis will typically be looking at these reports in great detail and performing financial analysis, including the calculation of important financial ratios.

We have just published the free Company Financials App for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows 8.1/10 that lets you explore and analyze US public company high-level financial reports automatically extracted from the XBRL filings in the SEC’s EDGAR database. You can search by company name or stock ticker symbol and view the financial reports of the last four quarters or last four years, as well as charts of annual or quarterly data reaching back several years.

In addition, various financial ratios, such as current ratio, quick ratio, cash ratio, gross profit margin, operating profit margin, return on assets, return on equity, debt/equity ratio, capitalization ratio, asset turnover, free cash flow, and many others, are calculated and displayed for the last four quarters or last four years. This makes the Company Financials app very useful for education purposes, such as business school programs in the area of accounting, finance, or corporate management.
