Use Sharesight as a Specialised Investment Search Engine

Sharesight LogoSharesight call themselves - "Simply the best share portfolio tracker for DIY investors."

We agree, so far we haven't found any portfolio trackers that offers better value for money than Sharesight, particularly the free version.

As well as keeping track of the number of units, prices and income we can run various standard reports. A feature Sharesight has that many don't, is that it displays summarised financial data on a security right there in the same system as the portfolio. And Sharesight also displays links to recent news related to companies in the portfolio.

Recently I discovered a brilliant Sharesight feature I'd overlooked - it is called Share Checker.

Click the button, enter the company code and I'm presented with a summary of company information and share price performance over various periods and at the bottom four tabs with different information on each. The last one is labelled News and there is a list of the last six items that have appeared in the news that Google has been able to find. I could just go to a Goggle Search but then I have to filter out all the adds and other dross it might find. However it's not great for companies that have common words for names as you still can get irrelevant information in the news feed.
