    I usually don't trust small fund return figure, depend what stocks they hold that figure can be
    easily be manipulated and there is no way to tell.

    Let say you hold concentrated 15 stocks and the closing date for the report is 30/06
    it wouldn't be too hard for you to make some trade that move price the way you want it
    to move so the fund out perform the index and with smaller il-liquid stock it even easier.

    there are plenty of them claiming out performing the index
    but most of their members aren't much richer :cry:

    Skaffold now $550 until Tuesday? is it worth it?

    Skaffold now $550 until Tuesday? is it worth it?

    i'm a bit skeptical about this tool. Has anyone used the service made any profit? is the service tax dedutable?

    I'm a newbie and info would be appreciated.

    Have a look at this post and compare the prices then, the valuations and the current price.

    Re: Skaffold vs Stock Doctor

    I am not a user of Skaffold but am currently attempting to study the usefulness of the program for my purposes, by evaluating the 7 day trial. It appears that Lincoln Stock Doctor is an alternative which performs a similar function. As a matter of interest, is anyone aware of a detailed comparative analysis between Stock Doctor and Skaffold?

    Skaffold data is out of date and just plain wrong! Why would you pay for a service that gives you incorrect market intelligence?

    Just checked BHP:
    Skaffold says that BHP closed at $27.38
    True closing price was $26.890

    Skaffold says shares on issue: 5.32B
    ASX says it is 3.21B

    Skaffold says Market Capitalisation: 142.68B
    ASX says: $86.36B

    With BHP, it could be that the ASX figures are only for the ASX-listed part of BHP's duo-listed structure. Not sure as I haven't looked into BHP, but RIO is split like that.

    So maybe the Skaffold figure is reflecting the entire BHPBilliton on all exchanges.

    More to the point, I don't find these out of the box consumer data/ratio sites useful or accurate at all.

    They all pretty much get the same data/ratios from one of some 3 data provider [or their reseller] and packaged it with different user interface, slightly prettier presentation of the dataset [charts and what not].

    But deep down, it's all the same old data... most of which you can get for free from your broker or Google/Yahoo finance.

    Start there, it costs you nothing... then if you find the company/stock is interesting, then simply open up its annual reports, goes through its presentations... get the latest share price and shares outstanding etc. to then invest or not.

    And here's my shameless self-promotion... if you don't have the time or patience, or experience, to calculate all the ratios you need to look into for each company, use my app: www.danginvestor.com

    It's not easy to use, people have been telling me to simplify it... If I know how to simply making-money, I'd be pretty dam rich already. Anyway, it does require you to read the reports, enter the financial data, do your own thinking by interpreting the charts and ratios in context with your understanding of the business etc. And it's free for individual/private investors.

    Hi Luu Dang :)
    Does this forum allow self promotion/advertising? Perhaps I should have a go too... LOL

    Well, given the stuff I wrote and the insults I've flung around on the forum... it's pretty hard to define whether it's advertising or not.

    So on that technicality, Joe will probably not ban me. That and I have made him about $1 all these years in ad revenue. :D
