One Of Warren Buffett’s Favorite Metrics Says Stocks Are Way Too Expensive.

warren-buffett

I was searching on metrics that Warren Buffett likes to track and I found this article on Forbes about U.S. Total Market Capitalization and how he uses it to determine if the market is to hot or just right.

The Buffett Indicator takes the stock market’s market capitalization and divides it by the US Gross Domestic Product. From an interview he did with Fortune in December 2001 Buffett said “For me, the message of that chart is this: If the percentage relationship falls to the 70% or 80% area, buying stocks is likely to work very well for you. If the ratio approaches 200%–as it did in 1999 and a part of 2000–you are playing with fire.”

Well, if you download Atlas Insights, now you can have Warren’s favorite market indicator right on any of your mobile devices (Apple or Android) or desktops (Windows or MAC) and you’ll be just as informed as Warren.

Discovering insights and mining data can be a lot of fun when you have access to good public data.  It has been fun to watch the public data discovery segment grow and grow over the years.   In all my years of doing data analysis and development, public data insights is just a big pain in the butt.  Inaccurate data, data out of date, pay services and limited views of the data makes it very frustrating.  Then you watch and listen to the TV and Radio financial shows and it makes you wonder where they got those numbers.  I always found it a pain and wanted better access to those numbers, so what should I do?  Add it to my app.

prince1999

Did you know that all the big software companies that provide reporting solutions that their technologies are basically the same since 1999?  Seriously, there is really nothing new except for some colors and animated charts.  All they did was take an old approach to business reporting and just redo it with new software development tools and slap a NEW sticker in the corner of the box.  Kind of like TIDE washing detergent, some formula, just a new bottle design.  Gezzzzz….

In building Atlas Insights, I wanted to make sure you had access to the most impactful chart views without having to be a master report developer to use them. You enter your data and pick your chart type and Atlas will do the rest.  No need trying to figure out all the different properties associated to a chart, just pick your chart type for your metric and Atlas will automatically map your data and make magic happen in an instant.

The following chart views are available:

  • Area Chart
  • Bar Chart
  • Donut Chart
  • Gauge Control

  • Pie Chart
  • Polar Chart
  • Progress Bar
  • Radar Chart
  • Scorecard View
  • Stacked Chart
  • Grid View
  • Tile View

If you add a Target to a metric, the charts will recognize this and automatically map a target line to your actuals.  This is great for really understanding how your business is performing against goals.

When working with the Scorecard Views, you can set your targets and thresholds so that they automatically turn Red, Yellow and Green depending on your progression to those targets.  Absolutely the most important view your business and employees can have.
