How to Use Google Finance & Analyze Financial Information



hi guys Alex fun bus Terry and I told you this bank before that I was gonna tell you guys what all these numbers mean how to use Google Finance and Oh almost you guys so I'm gonna meet my promise and tell you guys what this means and all of this stuff and how to use Google Finance I'll make one I'll make another one for me Yahoo Finance and if there's any other companies that you want me to do I'll do that as well um okay so when you look at this I'm doing Google so the ticket symbol is G 0 G and it's listed in the Nasdaq market um Google is a really good way of getting information because their data is more reliable than any other source I've used even Yahoo Finance and it's a really neat way of looking at how it's a great tool for you you to use when you're looking for more information on the company and let me uh let me tell you guys so what this means this is the current price at that and with the help of their current technology if the market is open it will give the time here and it will this price will automatically update without you refreshing the page or anything this right here is how much the company has made or lost since yesterday or the previous busy business days closed so in this case since today is Friday yesterday's close was $1 and 15 more then this price 620 125 and this is the percentage that was lost in this case which is a 0.18 percent and this will be in red now if a company is making money this will be in green and you will not see this negative sign so that's something to clarify this is just one of the casein names now the range right here is this is the vane shear and this is the day just the daily range of the latest day so today I was finding the lowest point was six hundred twenty dollars and 32 cents and the highest was $600 and 24 flat and this is only for the last business day so today was the last business day may now this the price when when the market is open it'll automatically update from the lowest to the highest price so that's the range the 32 week is basically saying how high has it went in the you a the lowest point in the highest point within a year so in this case the highest point was six hundred seventy dollars and twenty-five cents while the lowest was 473 dollars and two cents the open is really simple this is just saying what price did they open on on the last market they bet you or the current business day or the last one business day that it was open on and the price is six hundred and twenty two dollars so today finding was the last business day it will started out at six hundred twenty two dollars this is also different from the the close of the previous business day so please keep that in mind opening price is not necessarily the closing price of the previous market day the vol / / average is just how much volume has been going on and the left side here is how much volume was on the business on the the most recent business day so today's funding the love the volume was one point five seven million and the average is basically how much volume is usually expected and that's two point nine eight million this is a good indicator on saying uh if today the mark is if people are more people are buying and selling or more people are just sitting back not not many people are buying this tells you a filly well indicator of if there's Hugh if there's good volume and or if people are buying or selling the stuff market cap is something that is a very important and it's something that you should know basically the market cap is a total value of our company and how this is calculated is basically it takes the hot however many shares the company has and it multiplies it by the current price so here it says shares if you do three hundred twenty five point one four million this is rounded a little bit times this price you would get a value of two hundred and one around two hundred two billion dollars so that's how you get the market cap and this is how much the company is a wolf market value the p/e is also known as the price to earnings ratio and what this is is basically um boning it's basically market value divided divided by the earnings per share so the market value is at six hundred twenty one dollars and twenty five cents now if you have the earnings per share which is twenty nine point seven five and I'll get back to that later you will get twenty point eight nine the p/e ratio is also known as a multiple the higher the pev value the more the investors are expecting higher earnings growth in the future so if this is higher more people want to the expecting a high o burnings or quarterly earnings from the company a P you shouldn't necessarily look at the P ratio as the only indicator there's other things to see but this is one of the aspects of looking at a company the dividend / yield is this is usually there would be a percent here and it would be dividend amount and there's a slash of the total amount since you see this it means that it's not applicable and but I'll still explain it because it's still relatively important for you to know so the dividend is basically decided by the Board of Directors and it's distributed to the shareholders a it's either usually in cash or stock but it could also be something else such as property although that never really happens and it just offers some security and stability for investors um a company like Google since its technology most of that money that they own from the that they earned are not reinvested to the shareholders instead is given out to its reinvested in the company itself uh yo haha yield doesn't necessarily mean it's a better stock however if you're looking for most of stables stock then that's something you want consider so keep that in mind CPS this is something very interesting and it's basically earnings it stands for earnings per share and if you look here says the net income per share according to the most recently quarterly report so this is how much the company has earned and and and this is the most recent value given and this is something that I'll make a completely new video on because this is something a bit more confusing and this is something important really important uh I'll give another video entirely on EPS here our shares is just how many shares are out there of the security which is Google so there's three hundred twenty five point one four million shares of Google obviously that's bounded a little bit beta is um basically a indicator of how volatile the stock is um it is it just measures the risk of a stock even a portfolio if the beta is equal to one that means that it moves exactly with the market and so know that if beta is less than 1 then it means that it's less volatile than the market itself if it's greater than 1 then it's more volatile than the market and since this is 1.08 it is a little bit more volatile than the market however it's relatively close to the market and i NST own is in to tional ownership and this is also a really big important thing when you're looking at this is basically this is the percent percentage of shares owned by the institutional investors so these are the big dogs such as you know like pension plans and insurance firms when they invest how much of the shares are owned by dung and 6 in this case 67 so that's 2/3 of the company is owned by really big companies and it's not it's not like individual investors it is big firms and pension plans and that's something you want to keep a lookout for when you're looking at this type of data so hopefully guys of you understand this a little bit better um the charts charts is more tech technicals and I wouldn't get into that in this video um you can all and on Google Finance there's also something where you can compare stocks you can type in something ad and you can compare it so if I do Dow Jones it can compare the percentage or where it's growing within a selected time period so that's pretty cool so guys thank you for watching this video hopefully this helped you this is a great tool for people who are investing and need some tools it's obviously free um so guys if you like this video please subscribe and I'll see you guys soon
