The potential of emerging markets should not be taken for granted, now that the government is in full support to strengthen their business operations. The release of a recent order from the president’s office leaning towards steel manufacturing industries not only to show initial support, but to pave a way in giving them a substantial part in the market.
This positivity highlights the future for steel markets which were in constant competition with outside resources for years. Now that the spotlight is on, investors are starting to set their focus in studying the growth potential of these companies for investment.
Let us join this campaign to support our emerging markets. We have studied some portfolio of US steel companies by using XBRLAnalyst tool and rank them according to their share value and earnings appeal.
- We started by collecting some publicly-listed steel manufacturers from SEC database. By using “Compare Companies” feature with option to “Filter by Sector”, we found that there are 4 sectors related to “Steel” as the search word we use for comparison.
- We selected some companies in the list and compared with investment metrics. These metrics were already listed in excel and transferred to the system for comparison using the “Load from Excel” facility. This saves your time in choosing comparison metrics from Normalized Financials, especially if you’ve already have comparison list for your reports’ conformity.
- Then choose the type of report, and here we used style 1 to make pivot table and chart.
- The template created can be used as guide for investors as to which companies may start monitoring each share price for possible investment.
This simple monitoring tool can be used to track your prospective companies for investment. But if you are still contemplating and taking time to decide, just click the “Comps Table” button whenever you feel like updating. A small window will show you options int which period you wanted to update your table to. Just highlight all your data, choose the period and XBRLAnalyst will do the rest for you!
