6 Types of Stocks to Strengthen Your Portfolio, According to Peter Lynch

 

image (5)

How did Peter Lynch, one of the world’s greatest fund managers, achieve an average annualized return of 29.2% for 13 years straight?

He turned a million dollar into 27.9 million in just 13 years…

How did he do it!?!?

Screen Shot 2561-03-15 at 17.33.29 (1)

Peter Lynch’s mastery transformed a million into 20 million in just a decade.

Lynch was able to accomplish the feat partly by categorizing stocks into 6 groups. That helped him tackle the risks inherent in each type of stocks properly, so he could produce such phenomenal returns.

For us ordinary investors, his idea could help you pick stocks that align with your investment goals and acceptable risk level, on top of investing in good companies at a fair price.

For example…

When you’re middle aged with a bit of money set aside for investment, you’d be willing to risk more for higher returns.

But when you’re retired, you might be willing to risk very little, so you’d be satisfied with returns just slightly above inflation rates.

Knowing which stock-group a company belongs to means you can pick the right investment that will propel you toward your goals.

Here are the 6 types of stocks you should pay attention to, according to Peter Lynch.

BX

1. Slow Growers

Slow growers are large-cap companies whose earnings are, if not stable, growing at a lower rate than that of the economy. Their market prices don’t fluctuation much, thus aren’t very lucrative when it comes to capital gain. But they do offer high dividends, sometimes as high as 7-10%, rendering them suitable for low-risk investors who don’t expect sky-high capital gains.

Basic ratios for analysis

– Low price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) and price-to-book value (P/BV) ratio

– High dividend payout ratio

– Dividend yields might be as high as 7-10% per year

– High market capitalization

Caution

If a company is part of a sunset industry, there’s a high chance its performance is slowing down, too.

PG

2. Stalwarts

These are large companies with strong fundamentals, making them very resilient to economic uncertainties. Despite their modest profit growth of around 10%, they are well-known and respectable companies in the eyes of the public, are relatively low-risk and can quickly recover from recessions.

 

Basic ratios for analysis

– Earnings per share growing steadily at the rate slightly above that of the market

– Low debt-to-equity ratio

– Big market capitalization

Caution

These can sometimes can be mistaken with cyclical stocks. So make sure your Stalwarts’ operations aren’t affected heavily by volatile resources such as the prices of oil, petrochemical and coal.

FB

3. Fast Growers

These companies may not be as large or fundamentally as strong as the other two, but they have a potential to grow at least 15-20% or even higher each year. Some of them could produce a return of 100-200% in just a few years. But such growth should be driven by revenues and profits generated by business expansion, not from buying and selling assets. One advantage of investing in these stocks is that you can hold them for as long as they can keep their growth rates up.

 

Basic ratios for analysis

– High and consistent price-to-earnings ratio

– Earnings per share grow at the rate of 15-20%

Caution

Growth should not come from unusual income like sales of assets irrelevant to the core business.

CVI

4. Cyclicals

Cyclical stocks are companies whose sales and profits rise and fall in a more or less predictable fashion. They go through episodes of expansion and contraction as their ability to generate profits are highly sensitive to certain external factors. Most are related to oil, petrochemical, coal, commodities, agricultural products and real estate, which are the majority of stocks in Thailand. For example, oil companies should see their sales and profits surge when oil prices go up and vice versa.

 

Basic ratios for analysis

– Price to earnings ratio and earnings per share tend follow a pattern of peaks and plunges—3 years of profitability and 2 years of losses, for example.

Caution

Make sure you really understand their business cycle, including the cycle of the resources needed to operate their businesses. Otherwise you could buy in the wrong part of the cycle.

BAC

5. Turnarounds

These are companies that have suffered severe losses or nearly went bankrupt due to unprofitable investments or lack of liquidity, but are in the process of turning themselves around. If these companies repay their debts or successfully restructure their businesses and turn a profit, you’ll be benefiting hugely from that, too.

 

Basic ratios for analysis

– Price to earnings ratio and earnings per share follow a pattern of peaks and plunges

– Net profit becomes positive

– Debt to equity ratio continues to fall

Caution

These are highly risky investments as they could go bankrupt anytime.

6. Asset Plays

These companies usually own high-value assets such as real estate or shares in other companies, like Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett’s holding company that own shares in a number of different businesses.

If you put money in an Asset Play company that invests in profitable businesses or in prime real estate, the value of the Asset Play company will also increase as well. That means you have a chance to enjoy huge capital gain when the market realizes the real value of the assets the company is holding.

 

Basic ratios for analysis

– Searching for Asset Plays won’t require much ratio analysis, but more digging through company financials to see what assets are they holding, how much did they spend to acquire those assets, and how much are those assets today. You can find such information in public statements released by the companies.

Caution

No one knows when the market will realize the real value of these companies, especially those that own the real estate. That might prevent their stock prices from going up for quite some time.  

 

The quickest way to identify stock type

Peter Lynch invested in these 6 types of stocks to create a well-diversified portfolio, keeping the risk manageable while maximizing the returns.

You don’t have to invest in more than 1,000 stocks like him to make use of his technique. Just start by reading financial reports, identifying the trends of key financial ratios relevant to each type of stocks, and you will know if a stock fits in your portfolio.

For example, if you’re middle aged with a sum of money for investment, you’d be more willing to take a bit of risk. So you might pick the Fast Growers, Cyclicals and Turnarounds to make your portfolio grow at the rate of 15-20% per year.

But if you just retired and can’t take much risk—your main goal is to maintain the principle investment—investing in the Slow Growers, Stalwarts, Asset Plays and a small portion of Fast Growers could help you achieve a return of 5-8%, which is higher that the inflation rates.

Jitta FactSheet can help you save a lot of time, as you can put the most important ratios at the top, or group ratios together for easy reading.

PG

Here are some ratios you could add to your Jitta FactSheet to speed up financial analysis:

  1. Market cap
  2. Price to book value ratio
  3. Earnings per share
  4. Net profit margin
  5. Debt to equity ratio
  6. Return on equity
  7. Dividend payout ratio
  8. Free cash flows
  9. Dividend yield

 

Not only will these ratios help you identify the type of each stock, but will also help you spot the growth and performance trends of each company in a fraction of the time.

Just follow these 3 easy steps to add and customize your Jitta FactSheet:

Jitta recognized at the 2018 Frost & Sullivan Thailand Excellence Awards

{“source”: “ Frost & Sullivan”,
“link”: “bit.ly/2uJ0q6H”,
“excerpt”: ‘Jitta recognized at the 2018 Frost & Sullivan Thailand Excellence Awards’}

Jitta 1

Jitta has won the 2018 Frost & Sullivan Thailand Excellence Awards – Companies to Action.

It recognizes start-ups and emerging companies for their contributions in bringing path-breaking innovations and bringing their concepts to fruition.

Contenders of this award were evaluated based on the following criteria: market disruption, competitive differentiation, market gaps, blue ocean strategy and passionate persistence. Jitta has been able to distinguished itself by leveraging technology to broaden the investor base in Thailand, consequently recording phenomenal growth in just 7 months of operations.

 

Shailendra Soni, Principal Consultant at Frost & Sullivan, says:

“While Thailand’s nascent Fintech market is showing steady growth, the emergence of the WealthTech segment in the past year is proving to be one of the most promising areas attracting significant uptake. As one of Thailand’s tech-driven wealth management start-ups, Jitta managed to gather 2,500 customers in just 7 months of its operations. The company has managed to record this phenomenal growth through its excellent marketing efforts attracting another 7,500 aspiring customers on its waiting list.”

“Jitta is disrupting the stock investment industry by simplifying the process allowing anyone with over THB 1 million to be able to invest in stocks. With its proprietary Jitta Score and Jitta Line that together create Jitta Ranking, the company is minimizing the complexities of stock investment by guiding investors on the best stocks to buy and best time to invest. In leveraging cutting-edge technology, Jitta is helping to broaden the investor base in Thailand by reducing the cost of investing and onboarding time from several months to just a few weeks.”

 

Trawut Luangsomboon, CEO of Jitta, made a speech at the award ceremony on March 28, 2018:

“As a representative of Jitta, I would like to thank Frost & Sullivan for this incredible opportunity. To Jitta, this means more than just being recognized for the hard work. It also symbolizes the acknowledgment of Jitta’s vision—the need to make professional wealth management more accessible to the masses.”

“Jitta team members have their own passion for innovation to help investors meeting quality standard of service and receiving a better return. Thanks also to our investors and advisors for believing in our dream. I’m also extremely grateful for the devoted trust and support of our loyal customers. We wouldn’t be able to make it this far without them.”

“This award has definitely fanned our fiery passion! We’ll keep going until we can create tremendous positive impacts on the lives and well-being of millions around the world.”

Jitta Ranking 2017 Performance

The beginning of each year marks a long-awaited occasion, during which we reveal the performance of Jitta Ranking Top 20 stocks.

Jitta Ranking is our proprietary stock-ranking algorithm that follows Warren Buffett’s “buy a wonderful company at a fair price” principle and is determined, primarily, by Jitta Score (quality) and Jitta Line (fair value).    

Last year, the average return achieved by Jitta Ranking in 7 countries, including the U.S., Thailand, Vietnam, United Kingdom, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, outperforms the index.

The first 20 stocks on each country’s Jitta Ranking, or Jitta Ranking Top 20, bring in an average of 30.75% return, while market indices of these 7 countries together generate around 23.71%.

Jitta Ranking also fares well in each individual country, beating the market in the U.S., Japan, Singapore and the U.K. while achieving impressive 2-digit returns in Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong—only trailing behind market indices by a miniscule margin.

Still, in the long run, our backtests and forward tests prove how effective Jitta Ranking is at beating market indices in each country.

At the heart of the Jitta Way investing strategy lies a simple method: Buy a wonderful company at a fair price. Which, in this case, is buying the first 20-30 stocks on Jitta Ranking for optimal risk diversification, holding them for 12 months and rebalancing once a year. Such simple strategy can help grow your investment continuously and sustainably.

To demonstrate the validity of this investing method, we’ve published detailed backtests and forward tests of Jitta Ranking, from 2009 to present, along with annual lists of Jitta Ranking top 20 stocks here https://goo.gl/Er52xt. We update the performance of each stock on the list at the beginning of every year.  

It was a bull market in the U.S. The S&P 500 rose 19.4%, the highest in 4 years. But Jitta Ranking did even better, achieving impressive 34.46% last year.

Last year was the golden year for the Stock Exchange of Thailand, whose index reached an all-time-high of 1,700 points, prompting stellar performances of both Jitta Ranking and SET50.


Another blockbuster year in Vietnam’s stock market saw the VN index spiked 48.03%, becoming Asia’s highest and the world’s third top performer.

Japan’s Jitta Ranking Top 20 beat the Nikkei 225 to the ground last year, delivering a return of 57.19% while the index gained 19.10%. Both reflected the country’s bullish trend.

Although Singapore’s stock market made its first major comeback since 2012, Jitta Ranking still managed to outperform the index with its 35.98% gain.

Thanks to the popularity of Tencent, Hong Kong’s stock market pulls out the best performance in a decade, surpassing 30,000 points for the first time since 2007 with 35.99% gain.

Things are pretty lively over in the U.K., too, with the FTSE 100 hitting a new record, making 7.63% gain and Jitta Ranking beating that number with 31.52%.

Start investing with Jitta Ranking

Our backtests and forward tests show that Jitta Ranking isn’t just an effective investing method, but also an incredibly simple one that saves time and is suitable for everyone, regardless of their years in the stock market.

If you want to simplify your investment, but still want satisfactory returns in the long run, Jitta Ranking can help you pick “wonderful companies at a fair price”, diversify and rebalance your portfolio without much effort at all.    

Get started by visiting https://www.jitta.com/explore?country=US for today’s top stocks on Jitta Ranking. Count from left to right, top to bottom to find the first 20-30 stocks.   

Then divide your fund 20 to 30 ways and allocate to each stock equally. If you buy 20 stocks, each would weigh around 5% of your portfolio. If you buy 30, each would weigh around 3-4%.

A year after your first trade, it’s time to rebalance. On that day, you’ll need to revisit Jitta Ranking again to find out which stocks don’t make the cut this time around; they will promptly be sold. Any profits you’ve made will be combined with your initial investment to purchase new stocks that make it to the top.

Repeat this same process year after year and you can boost your investment performance, achieving great long-term returns with little effort.

Why buy so many?

Jitta Ranking Top 5 and 10 may produce higher annualized returns than Jitta Ranking Top 20 or 30.

But those come with higher volatility, too.

If you only buy the first 5 stocks on Jitta Ranking, and one of them hits rock bottom…that means 20% of your portfolio lost its value.

Those unable to withstand interminable drawdowns may panic and prematurely sell their stocks, hurting their returns in the long run.    

But when you buy 20-30 stocks, which is the optimal amount for Jitta Ranking-based investing, you won’t be losing sleep over extreme volatility.

No.

You’ll be investing in so many types of businesses in so many different industries that your portfolio will be guarded against industry-specific risks, and if affected, won’t severely cripple the growth of your investment.

Because, when you buy top stocks on Jitta Ranking, you are buying “wonderful companies at fair prices”. Any unexpected changes in one company’s fundamentals won’t mean the end of your fortune, as the rest of your holdings could potentially make up for it.

Why rebalance only once a year?

The best thing about the Jitta Ranking investing method is not having to time the market. You trade just once a year.

‘Cause when you start out buying fundamentally strong companies, it’s better to wait until you see complete annual financial reports before making any trading decisions. Otherwise, it could cost you precious profitable opportunities.

Plus, you’re never right 100% of the time. Sometimes you make great decisions. Sometimes you make mistakes. In the end, rebalancing frequently may yield similar results as would rebalancing once a year, but you’ll end up paying more trading commissions, which directly eat into your profits.

If you want to start investing long-term or have plans to rebalance your portfolio in the near future, you can view the first 20-30 stocks on Jitta Ranking here.

Or if you feel that buying and selling 30 stocks every year is still too much work, Jitta Wealth, our automated portfolio-management service, could manage everything for you. Find out more about this novel technology at wealth.jitta.com.

Happy investing!

Ring in the New Year with Access to the Most Comprehensive Financial Data on Jitta

Happy new year!

For us, a new year means the start of new challenges that will nudge us further toward our mission of helping you generate better investment returns.

We’ve developed a suite of technology that would fulfill that mission, allowing everyone access to highest-quality investment-related data.

Because, we believe, when you have the clearest, most comprehensive information in your hand, you can make the best decisions, achieve optimal returns and, eventually, reach your ultimate investment goals.

Best investment information = Best investment decisions

So this new year, we want to present these special gifts to you and fellow investors:

🎁  Highest-quality financial data

Because financial statements lay the groundwork for precise business analysis, we’ve decided to switch our data provider from Thomson Reuters to S&P Global Market Intelligence. S&P’s reliably detailed financials will bring next-level excellency to Jitta Score and Jitta Line.  

🎁  Jitta FactSheet for all

We do what no one dares! Jitta provides 10 years of financial statements in an easy-to-understand, customizable format called Jitta FactSheet. And it’s now FREE to all Jitta.com members.

Both Jitta FactSheet and new financial data from S&P Global are available from January 3, 2018 ’til forever.

Highest-quality financial data

Accurate business analysis relies on the transparency and thoroughness of the financial statements.

Jitta has always been on the lookout for the best source of financial data because we want the quality of our fundamental business analysis to be nothing but top-notch.

And finally, we’ve found the one…

So we’re switching our data provider from Thomson Reuters to S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Why the switch?

Jitta Intel, the various fundamental business indicators Jitta pre-analyzed for you, including Jitta Score, Jitta Line, Jitta Signs, Jitta Factors and Loss Chance, as well as our proprietary Jitta Ranking, are all calculated from at least 10 years of financial data.

Which means, the raw data we’re working with has to be as precise as possible. That way, you will be able to get a clear picture of a business and make decisions with more confidence.

What’s improved?

Higher-quality financial data leads to more-precise Jitta Intel indicators.

Sometimes, businesses may record various types of incomes under the same category. At face value, it may seem like these businesses generate a lot of revenue in a particular year. But it’s hard to tell whether or not those incomes are a result of a day-to-day business operation or an unusual income. For example, part of BIDU’s revenue comes from its asset sales, which are considered an unusual income.

But S&P Global doesn’t lump these numbers together. Instead, it separates each type of income so it’s easy to recognize whether an income is usual or unusual. In effect, it makes it simpler for Jitta to exclude unusual income from our Jitta Score and Jitta Line calculations for increased precision.

In addition, S&P Global makes it so much more effective and transparent for our team to double-check the data. It shows the origin of each of the financial number in detail and link that number to the source.

So you can be extra confident that the financial data that form the basis of our Jitta Intel calculations are extremely exact, and can form an integral part of your decision making.

A sample of S&P Global’s detailed and transparent data.  

In addition, S&P Global uses the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) to classify the sector and industry of each company. This classification system is used by thousands of market participants around the world and is reviewed annually to reflect the changing global economy. As a result, when you screen stocks by sector or industry using Jitta Playlist, you’ll get even better results.

Learn more about the classification differences in our FAQ or download the official brochure.

Why S&P Global Market Intelligence?

S&P Global Market Intelligence is part of Standard & Poor’s or S&P, known around the world as the creator of the S&P 500 index. Unsurprisingly, S&P Global Market Intelligence has data of more than 60,000 listed companies and 2 million private companies.

Each year, the company examines, interprets and analyzes more than 135 billion data points.

The superior quality of data earns S&P Global Market Intelligence trust from more than 4,200 global financial professional clients, including many of the world’s most successful investment banks, asset management firms, private equity firms, and corporations, including renown sites like Yahoo Finance and Google Finance.

Free Jitta FactSheet for Everyone

Previously, Jitta FactSheet was an exclusive feature only available to Jitta’s paid subscribers. It quickly became one of Jitta’s core features as well as an investors’ favorite, as more and more started using it in complementary to Jitta Intel indicators for more confident decision-making.      

Jitta FactSheet displays up to 10 years’ worth of financial data in a standardized format. So no matter what type of unfamiliar business, industry or country a company belongs, you can read its financial as comfortably as you do the familiar ones’. Plus, you can customize Jitta FactSheet by adding specific ratios and rearranging their orders.

Most importantly, Jitta FactSheet automatically updates company financials when they’re released, so you don’t have to.

And because we want to stay true to our goal of helping everyone access the highest-quality financial data possible, we’ve decided to make it free for all.

🎁 Jitta FactSheet is available for FREE from January 3, 2018.🎁

You can look at the financial statements of every single company in every country Jitta serves, including Thailand, the United States, Vietnam, Singapore, United Kingdom, Japan and Hong Kong.

That’s ten years and ten quarters of data of more than 13,000 companies—at no cost.

Usually, such comprehensive financial data comes with a hefty price tag. Those who don’t want to pay need superhuman perseverance to scour the Internet for financial statements, copy and paste each number on to a spreadsheet and calculates each financial ratio every single quarter.

We know how tedious that is…and we want to make life easier for everyone!

Try Jitta FactSheet here, or learn how to make the most of this feature with our step-by-step tutorial.

Hope you like these gifts we’ve prepared specially for you.

We think 2018 will mark another year of progress for us, a year during which we make achieving higher investment returns even simpler for all.

Try the new Jitta.com for faster, more personalized and more precise investing

The new Jitta.com boasts a sleeker look, faster load time, and more sophisticated algorithm that will help you make even better investment decisions.

Changes call for innovation, and innovation leads to progress.”
– Li Keqiang, premier of the People’s Republic of China,
at the World Economic Forum 2013 


 

This week, we proudly unveiled the new Jitta.com, a comprehensive investment-analysis platform for value investors around the world. The new site boasts a sleeker look, faster load time, and more sophisticated algorithm that will help you make even better investment decisions.

These changes represent our willingness to evolve. As a technology company, we are determined to grow with you, our user, and adapt to suit your ever-changing needs. There have been several updates to the site over the past few years since we launched, yes. But this isn’t another one of them.

This is a whole new facelift.

Because when we launched in 2013, we only envisioned Jitta as being one of the world’s most trusted stock-analysis provider. Today, Jitta is much more than that.

Jitta is a holistic value investment platform where you discover interesting businesses, create investment strategies, assess stocks and evaluate past investing approaches. Your entire investing operation is here. You trust us to help you succeed.

So we gave Jitta a little boost it needed. Sure, the look is different. But beneath the cosmetics is a brand-new system that our teams have spent the past year meticulously re-crafting from the ground up. All the cogs and gears are now turning as one, forming a stronger foundation on which our products are built.

That means you get a smoother, faster, more reliable experience on all of our features.

What’s new?

Faster functionality

Today, Jitta.com has emerged so much lighter. Our design is minimalist. Our system is equipped with the industry’s most advanced technology. You can find the right stocks faster than you can google what to eat for dinner.

Search Bar

It’s not just the speed that matter. Sure, you don’t have to wait long for the system to process your search term. But how you can search matters, too.

What if you don’t want to find a specific stock, but a whole industry of stocks? How about stocks that possess a certain kind of quality you like? You don’t get those results just typing down a stock symbol. So we expanded the capability of our Search Bar to include search terms like “financial” and “dividend”.

Click here to learn how to use our new Search Bar.

Search for stocks in a particular sector or industry.

Search for stocks in with particular traits, like dividend, growth, cash cow, etc.

Screener

Explore by Country and Jitta Playlist both now feature our signature Screener on the left side of the screen. Not only does it screen stocks faster, but is also free for all. Previously, non-Jitta Pro subscribers couldn’t add ratios and values derived from financial statements. We’ve reversed that by opening Screener up to everyone. You can filter stocks with any criteria from countries and industries to Jitta indicators, ratios and trends.

Click here to learn how to use our new Explore by Country and Jitta Playlist.

Personalized user experience

We’ve always focused on building a clean, user-friendly platform that makes stock data easily accessible to everyone. But we realized looks weren’t everything. As an aspiring go-to destination for investors, Jitta was a bit lacking. You come to Jitta in hopes that you won’t have to hop around the Internet, collecting pieces of information needed to make that grand final decision. And we didn’t have everything.

We wanted to! But, first, we needed to find a way to tread that fine line between giving you all necessary information and overwhelming you. The result is our new Stock Summary page.

Stock Summary

To make Jitta.com the perfect answer to your unique needs, we transformed static boxes into widgets that can be added, removed and moved around. Each widget gives you a glimpse into the inner workings of a certain business, like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle.

By default, you’ll see the essential stuff, like Jitta Line, Jitta Score, Jitta Signs, Jitta Factors and Jitta Ranking on the page. If you want more in-depth information, like market statistics and analyst estimates, you have the option to add them to the page by clicking “Customize”.

Click here to learn how to add widgets to your Stock Summary page.

 

Jitta FactSheet

If you have an active Jitta Pro subscription or have invested with Jitta Wealth, you’re eligible for our premium feature Jitta FactSheet. Jitta FactSheet eliminates the need to scour the Internet for past financial statements. You get ten years of annual financial data laid out in a simple, intuitive format.

To access Jitta FactSheet, simply click “Customize” and “Add Page”.

Increased precision

More than anything, we want Jitta.com to be your most trusted ally. You can rely on us for quality stock analysis, portfolio analysis, and raw financial data. Our development team constantly review and update the raw data supplied by Thomson Reuters to make sure everything published on Jitta.com is the as close to flawless as possible.

Jitta Score

You might notice some changes in Jitta Score, a result of data updates and processing improvements we made for the new Jitta.com. Such tweaks make sure you get even more sophisticated, thorough analysis of a business.

Most stocks aren’t affected, however. Only a handful—around 10% of stocks on Jitta.com—exhibit a changed Jitta Score. Mainly, these stocks are recently IPO companies, companies whose revenues have been inconsistent for the last five years, and companies whose dividend payout have been inconsistent for the last five years.

Jitta Portfolio (Beta)

As we grew, expanding into different markets in different corners of the world, so did investors’ interest in exploring unknown territories. Investing in a foreign market was becoming popular by the day, but our portfolio feature was missing the boat, unable to accommodate growing demands for multi-portfolio tracking.

So our portfolio feature reincarnated as Jitta Portfolio (Beta), complete with an ability to record and analyze many portfolios at once, and support transactions with different currencies.

This gives you a more precise analysis of your investment. With such accuracy, you can assess past wins and losses to improve your strategies with more confidence.

What’s changed?

While we were able to launch many exciting new functions, Jitta’s transformation is in no way completed. Some functions are still in development and not yet ready to be released. Some no longer reinforce our mission to make investing accessible to everyone and have been disabled. Among them are the following.

Jitta Pro

Jitta Pro subscription service is no longer available and has been disabled since August 1, 2017. Every feature, except Jitta FactSheet, is accessible to all Jitta.com users for free. Read more about Jitta Pro.

Backtest

Backtest is an essential part of Jitta Playlist, which we have no intention to remove. However, the function requires some final touch-ups before it can be unveiled to the public. For this reason, we decided to launch Jitta Playlist first, without the Backtest window, so we don’t interrupt your investment process. But we can assure that Backtest is returning to Jitta.com very soon.

FactSheet Compare

If you’re using Jitta FactSheet, you might notice that the Compare button is missing. This function lets you compare financials of three companies on a single page and has helped many investors make decisions on which companies to buy. At the moment, it’s still in development, but just like Backtest, it will return soon.

Follow

You used to be able to see all followed stocks on one page and order them by Jitta Ranking, to determine which followed stocks are the best investment opportunity. Though this function is also not yet available on the new Jitta.com, we’re working to bring it back as soon as possible. You can still click “Follow” stocks and receive their weekly updates in the mail. The Follow widget shows all the stocks you’re following.

Tag

Tag helps you organize stocks into categories of your own. When it’s fully ready, it’ll be complete with a function that lets you click on a certain tag and see all the stocks tagged with that category on one page. You can also rank tagged stocks by Jitta Ranking, Jitta Score or Jitta Line. This is still under development and will come back soon.

What now?

We understand that changes are sometimes hard. And we’re grateful to have you, a supportive member of our community, riding along with us, guiding us in the right direction. We’re listening to your concerns, questions and suggestions. Our development team is working hard to ironing out any glitches on the new Jitta.com.

Even if our innovations are not yet a hundred percent perfect, we believe that we’re making significant progress toward investment freedom. And one day we will be celebrating with every investor, experienced or beginner, as he or she find long-lasting success in the stock market.
