Find More Investment Opportunities Worldwide with GlobalAnalyst

GlobalAnalyst is designed for investors who are interested in international portfolio diversification. It helps you find new opportunities to diversify your portfolio and discover undervalued companies that may have greater growth potential.

Compare the relative value of global stocks by region, country, industry or individually, and display metrics in one of 27 currencies. Use GlobalAnalyst to analyze current market or financial metrics such as P/E/G ratio (PE divided by three-year compound earnings growth rate). PEGs below 1.0 suggest an undervalued company, while a value over 1.0 suggests an overvalued company.

In addition, you can use the Industries filter to search across any of 10 business sectors and apply filters by region, country, and market capitalization. Already have a short list of companies? Click Your Companies to enter up to 25 symbols of interest. Try GlobalAnalyst today!
