Someone who reads the blog sent me this email:
Nice article on EV/EBITDA - no qualms here. I'm curious, however, where you run your screens? Being the cheap bastard that I am, I don't subscribe to any specific data sites, so I've typically begun with google finance, which isn't very helpful when it comes to non-GAAP criteria.
StockScreen123 is the Best Place to Run Screens - But It Takes Time to Learn
The best place to run screens - for the price - is StockScreen123. It is not user friendly. You need to read about how the functions work, etc. and experiment a bit. But it's the best site by far.
I highly recommend it.
For U.K. stocks I use Sharelockholmes.
For worldwide, I don't have a good (cheap) solution. A lot of people use the FT screener.
Bloomberg.com is Actually a Super Handy Site - If You Know What It's Best At
Blommberg's (free) website has great coverage of just about every stock on planet Earth. They don't have much data. But if you type in a public company name - that trades anywhere in the world - you'll get basic info like EV/EBITDA.
Here are some obscure examples to prove my point:
If they've got those companies - they've got everything.
So Bloomberg is a great resource when you know a company's name but you aren't sure whether it's public or private, where it trades, etc.
I often start my stock research at Bloomberg.
