Praise for YCharts Reports

I like the way you analyze and the way that YCharts displays information. If specifically asked by someone what I use, or what I like I would recommend YCharts in a second.
Larry N, YCharts Research Reader

You have a great way of explaining things so that they are easy to understand. That's not very common in the investment management profession.
Chris M.

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.
Greg M, YCharts Research Reader
