What is good startup stock analysis

Upper Austria startup starts with Finvaley stock analysis tool

The Stockanalyzer GmbH from Ried im Innkreis in Upper Austria around founder and managing director David Bader presented the stock analysis tool Finvaley this week. This should make it easier for investors to find and compare favorably valued stocks. It is based on the principles of “value investing”, as they were especially shaped by Warren Buffett and his teacher Benjamin Graham.

Finvaley replaced Excel spreadsheets

Bader discovered that such an analysis tool was needed when he himself began to deal with stocks and company valuation. At banks, he was only given information about his own financial products. So he started to analyze stocks himself with an Excel spreadsheet. But because that did not prove to be practicable in the long run, he developed a program from it - from which Finvaley emerged. The claim of the tool: to enable independent and well-founded investment decisions on the stock market - and to be user-friendly at the same time.

In “value investing”, investors try to identify stocks that are undervalued as measured by business metrics and balance sheet data. Investors want to determine an “intrinsic value” of the share - and if this is below the current price, they see their opportunity: Because in the medium to long term, the price should approach this intrinsic value. Accordingly, value investors need patience, the approach is not suitable for short-term gamble. It also differs fundamentally from other investment strategies that are more oriented towards current price developments - such as technical chart strategies for which company fundamentals are not relevant.

Target group: Long-term oriented investors

Accordingly, founder Bader also emphasizes the long-term perspective: “Finvaley is particularly suitable for those investors who push an investment horizon of five, ten or more years”. Finvaley analyzes various balance sheet figures and then uses the company's value approach to put them in relation to the current share price. The user can then see via a simple traffic light system whether Finvaley currently considers a share to be cheap or expensive.

Finvaley relies on a freemium model: With the free package, it is possible to call up current balance sheet data and prices and to track shares. Full access to all Finvaley functions and priority support is available with a premium subscription for 29.90 euros per month. Currently, however, an Earlybird share is running, where you can get the premium package for 7.90 euros.
