What they think makes them better: Traditionally analyst reports have been static documents – a review and valuation of a company completed by an analyst or team. These reports have got more complex over time. The reports also cannot be interacted with – you have to take the analyst’s assumptions as given. Valuecruncher changes this. Valuecruncher supplies a valuation for each company based on consensus estimates for key assumptions and Valuecruncher inputs. Anyone can then modify the valuation in the report using our interactive tools to adjust the discounted cash flow analysis (DCF). Modified valuations can be saved and shared.
