Announcing The ETF Analyzer: Even More Data At Your Fingertips

by on August 7, 2012 is pleased to announce the latest addition to its suite of Web-based analytical resources, the ETF Analyzer. The new tool is designed to allow financial advisors and investors to evaluate customized groups of ETFs on a wide range of fundamental and technical criteria, ranging from expenses and performance to relative strength and dividend yield.

The ETF Analyzer is an extremely flexible tool that lets investors create custom comparisons of potential ETF investments. Want to see the average daily trading volume and 4-week return for all gold ETFs? No problem. Dividend yield, expense ratio, and number of total holdings for all Germany ETFs? Simple. Beta, five-year return, and commission free availability for corporate bond ETFs? Just a couple of mouse clicks. The list could go on and on; the data sets that can be generated with the ETF Analyzer are limitless. 

How It Works

The new ETF Analyzer allows users to select the group of ETFs they’d like to analyze in three different ways. ETFs can be selected by the best fit ETFdb Categories, such as Emerging Markets Equities or High Yield Bonds, which group together ETFs with similar objectives and risk characteristics. Users can also use various types to select a group of ETFs; for example, you can select all Germany ETFs, all China Bond ETFs, or all silver ETFs using the types dropdowns. Finally, individual tickers can be entered to create a fully customized group of ETFs to be analyzed.

Next, users are invited to select the criteria on which they wish to compare the group of ETFs. All users can select from a dozen descriptive characteristics, including trading volume, YTD returns, assets, and number of holdings. ETFdb Pro members can select from more than 40 different metrics, including dividend yields, various technical indicators, and ETFdb Realtime Ratings. ETFdb Pro members also have the ability to download Analyzer results to an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file (get full access to the ETF Analyzer with a free 7-day trial of ETFdb Pro).

We’d love to hear any feedback you have on the ETF Analyzer; please take it for a spin, and drop us a line with any comments. In the meantime, we’re hard at work on several more ETF tools and resources to continue to make ETFdb the biggest and best ETF site out there.
