The primary updates are the data in the balance sheets.
We also decide to bring forth net debts to assets to the table. This is because evaluating whether a stock is over leverage is quite important.
We decide also to provide more acute indication as to whether a stock have relatively high yield and whether a stock is paying more than it’s free cash flow yield. A good dividend stock will pay out from it’s free cash flow and not always rely on cash holdings or raise debts.
A caveat that I always make about our stock tracker is that fundamental data is based on annual / quarterly updates so announcements and adjustments made 5 days ago will not be reflected as we will not have the adjusted information.
A good example here is why First REIT has a –30% FCF yield. They just made big acquisitions which will come online at FY2011 annual report so it will not be reflected currently.
