Market Snapshot: October 2014 ValuationsOctober 17, 2014
YCharts Research released its monthly Valuation Snapshot Report for October 2014. The report turned up some attractive bullish opportunities in the Financial and Real Estate sectors both north and south of the border. On the bearish side, we take a look at the Tech sector, which sports some notable firms with weak operational metrics and stratospheric valuation ratios. In addition to highlighting sectors and industries screening as under- and overvalued using our distinctive relative value heat maps, we display a series of graphs showing market- and sector-level valuation, profitability, and returns metrics as well as data tables of individual stocks that are screening as most under- and over-valued.Download Report
Oracle has not, in fact, changed very much since we wrote our first Focus Report on it nearly a year ago. Its business model can still be best described as a cross between a pacemaker manufacturer and a disposable razor company—like a pacemaker, once installed, Oracle’s products are essential to the health of the customer, and like a disposable razor, continual updates are essential for optimal performance. The retirement of Oracle’s founder, Ellison, underscores the fact that the company is maturing. How the company responds to this transition is now, this author believes, the single most important fact in understanding Oracle’s valuation. This report investigates that question and provides updates to our original observations about operating leverage and other key operational measures.Download Report

Praise for YCharts Reports
Excellent job on the sector report. I always look forward to your analysis.

Several times a year we have to listen to talking heads in print and video lazily using...silly quotes [like "sell in May"] as fodder to fill their articles or air time... Then I read [The Big Picture: Sell in May?] which was refreshingly original and I applaud you for it.
