In a pioneering move, Jamaica's leading business publication and a top financial-services company have collaborated to bring to investors a guide to the best-performing stocks on the market that marries independent analysis with strong expertise.
Starting October 17, The Financial Gleaner, a publication of The Gleaner Company, and Pan Caribbean Financial Services, a member of the Sagicor group, brings you StockTrack, a quarterly publication that ranks companies listed on the stock market and highlights those that are leaders in their sectors.
Clear picture for investors
For the first time, and all in one place, investors will have a clear picture of which companies are on top of their game and whose stock is likely to bring real value to their portfolios.
"Information is out there, but it's time consuming to track it down and everyone has different positions. We will be giving investors what they desperately need: That one place to turn to for solid information on stocks," says Lavern Clarke, business editor, Gleaner.
"StockTrack will offer serious analysis based on independent variables but grounded in the financial reports of listed companies," adds Merrick Plummer, research manager, Pan Caribbean.
StockTrack will be your guide to the companies on top in sales and profit, which is the most efficient, which stocks have untapped value, those that are under and overpriced, which companies are burdened by debt, those that are richest by assets and equity, who are their bosses, and their key strategies.
StockTrack will be the place where serious and seasoned investors turn for the most accurate and indepth guide on how their investments will perform, the stocks that are likely to add value to portfolios, and for incisive market analysis.
But it is also for the new investor, hungry for information about equities and wanting to become 'a player'.
"This guide will open up the market to a new set of investors who might have been hesitant to buy stocks because they know little of the inner workings of the market, are not sure how to pick winners, or how to track the stocks they pick," says Tanya Miller, vice-president, marketing, Pan Caribbean.
"StockTrack solves that problem for them."
