Default Growth Alert

Set to check the Australian market, this alert looks for stocks that match ShareAnalysis’s Quality and Growth Filter and:

• Move into positive safety margin territory. That is, their share prices become cheap when compared to ShareAnalysis’s estimated intrinsic value.

• Companies whose Mainstreet Score stock rating meets ShareAnalysis’s preferred scores of A1, A2, B1 or B2.

Here’s what the alert settings are, and reasons why they’ve been selected.

How ShareAnalysis’s default stock alerts work

You will receive an email when a stock matches the alert criteria. For the default alerts, this can be daily.

The frequency of email alerts you receive depends upon a variety of factors. Essentially, if nothing about a stock changes, no alert will be triggered and you won’t receive an email.

Stocks to be alerted on

Why you’d use it

The entire stockmarket

Find new opportunities that may be outside your comfort zone.

Stocks that match one of your favourite filters

 

Only receive alerts about stocks you’re interested in buying.

If you only want to know when the safety margin of an A1 stock crosses above 10%, or when the intrinsic value of an A2 stock changes more than 5%, you’ll need to create your favourite filter first.

Stocks that match one of ShareAnalysis’s preset filters

Be notified when a stock matches one of ShareAnalysis’s preset filters: Quality and Growth, Quality and Yield or Speculative.

Stocks in any of your portfolios

If you only want to know about changes to the stocks in one of your portfolios or watchlists, create an alert specific to that portfolio/watchlist.

4. Choose the alert’s frequency

ShareAnalysis can check your alert daily, at the start of each week, or the beginning of each month.

The frequency needs to be considered in conjunction with the criteria you want to be alerted on.

Here are ShareAnalysis’s alert criteria, and the best frequency for each.

Frequency

Criteria best suited to:

Why?

Daily

Safety Margin crosses above or below a specified threshold

Share prices move daily. If your investment process defines that you must sell a stock when its share price rises above value, you want to know the day it happens.

Likewise if you’re looking for stocks to buy. When the Safety Margin is at your buy level, you want to know so that you can place the trade.

Share price changes

If a share price swings more than a certain percentage in a day – up or down – that may be your trigger to buy or sell.

New annual or interim report results available

You want to know when new the latest financial data is available in ShareAnalysis, as it happens.

Mainstreet Score changes

Mainstreet Scores can change when companies release new annual or interim results. You want to know when a company’s Score is upgraded or downgraded, as it happens.

Market news announcements

To receive the latest ASX announcements, as they are released.

Share Price Target

If you’re investment process requires that you sell a stock at a particular price, you want to know about that on the day it happens.

Weekly

Share price changes

If a share price swings more than a certain percentage over the course of a week – up or down – that may be your trigger to buy or sell.

FY1 intrinsic value estimate changes

Intrinsic valuations can change for a variety of reasons. Moving exchange rates and updated analyst earnings, dividends and profit forecasts are the primary reasons a company’s intrinsic value estimates change.

Use this criteria to be notified when a company’s intrinsic value rises or falls more than 1%, 2%, 5%, 10% or 15%.

The likelihood that a valuation would change daily is quite low. That’s why we suggest checking over the course of a week.

Monthly

Share price changes

If a share price swings more than a certain percentage over the course of a month – up or down – that may be your trigger to buy or sell.

FY1 intrinsic value estimate changes

Useful to find companies whose valuation has been upgraded or downgraded over the course of the month. A downgrade may be a trigger to sell the stock.

5. Criteria to check

Your investment goals will help you decide what criteria you’d like to be alerted on. You can choose from:

Alert criteria

Options available

Why you’d use it

Safety Margin

Crosses above this threshold: 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%

To identify stocks whose discount to intrinsic value become positive. For value investors, the bigger the discount the better!

Crosses below this threshold: 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%

To be alerted when you need to sell a stock. One example is if your investment process states you must sell a stock once the share price rises above value.

Share price changes more than:

1%, 2%, 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%

To know when a company’s share price rises or falls dramatically. If the share price falls more than 15% over the course of a week, that may be a trigger for you to sell the stock.

FY1 intrinsic value estimate changes more than:

1%, 2%, 5%, 10%, 15%

If ShareAnalysis’s intrinsic value estimate has declined more than 5% over the course of a week that may be a trigger to sell the stock.

If a company’s valuation is rising more than a certain percentage, that is a good sign. It means the analyst/s contributing forecast earnings, dividend and profit figures to ShareAnalysis expect growth from the company.

New annual or interim report results available

Select or not

To find out when a company releases its latest financial results. For ASX companies this usually occurs in February and August. Some global markets report quarterly, in February, May, August and November.

Mainstreet Score changes

Select or not

To find out when a company’s ShareAnalysis Score changes. This occurs twice a year for ASX companies, when they release their interim and full year reports. Some global markets report quarterly.

Market news announcements

Select or not

Available for Australia only. Be notified when companies release ASX announcements. Reading announcements released by companies you own are considering buying is a simple way to stay “in the know”.

Trigger if stock price passes threshold

Choose the stock and share price target.

Set share price targets for up to five stocks. Be alerted when a stock’s share price reaches a specific price.

Here are some stock alerts to help you get started

Use these ideas to refine your own stock alerts based on your personal financial situation and objectives.

Scenario 1: Monitor my portfolio for triggers to sell shares

Scenario 2: I’m looking for stocks to buy that match my strict investment criteria

Scenario 3: I want to know when companies release new results and/or ShareAnalysis Scores change

 

Scenario 1: Monitor my portfolio for triggers to sell shares

This investor follows a strict investment process that stipulates the reasons they will sell shares. When ShareAnalysis sends a stock alert, they place a sell trade.

Frequency of alert

Weekly

Based on this investor’s reasons to sell shares, weekly is fine.

Criteria to check

Safety Margin crosses above 0%

This indicates the share price has risen above ShareAnalysis’s intrinsic value estimate for the stocks, and may be a reason for this investor to sell.

 

Share price changes more than 10%

A 10% swing in a company’s share price is a trigger to do some digging. If the swing is -10%, and the company has released a negative announcement, this investor will sell.

 

FY1 intrinsic value estimate changes more than 2%

A valuation that is upgraded by 2% or more over the course of a week is a good thing. Negative changes however are a reason for this investor to sell shares.

 

New annual or interim report results available

If a company in their portfolio releases results, this investor wants to know about it.

 

ShareAnalysis Score changes

If a company’s ShareAnalysis Score is downgraded, due to less than promising interim or full year financial results, this investor will sell.

 

Market news announcements

This investor likes to read every announcement issued by the companies in their portfolio.

Scenario 2: I’m looking for stocks to buy that match my strict investment criteria
