An Advertisement for Financial Research Station

Financial Research Station (FRS) combines Tableau visual analysis software and Mergent/Ford market analytic and fundamental data to deliver cost-effective, easy-to-use analytics for investment managers and quantitative analysts. ASI has loaded the Mergent and Ford data bases on our server that is directly accessible from your desktop. With a FRS account and Tableau visual analysis software, you can backtest the performance of every name in the S & P 500 since 1974 using Ford's historical data base. You'll also have complete financial statements from Mergent for all S & P 500 names for the past five years.

As they say, seeing is believing. Here are 3 ways to see how FRS works with real data from Ford and Mergent

  1. Click HERE for a set of sample charts and tables created using Ford and Mergent data inside FRS. You will quickly see the value of visual analysis for investment research. Good ideas quickly are separated from the not-so-good ones. With FRS you will be able to design and test new alpha generating ideas in minutes not hours or days.

  2. Click HERE to access our Tableau Server. Please use ford_demo and dow2009 as the passwords. There we have loaded several interactive Tableau workbooks using Mergent and Ford data for the Dow 30. (You will have to log in twice to see the workbooks.) Open each table and graph and explore the interactive features within FRS. No need to download software or even learn much about FRS. It's intuitive. It's fast. It's extremely powerful.

  3. Download a fully functioning version of FRS for the Dow 30. You can set up a FRS test account on your PC in less than 20 minutes.

    1. Install a free version of Tableau software. Click HERE to download a 14-day trial version from the Tableau website.
    2. Download and install Tableau drivers for MySQL HERE.
    3. Click HERE to download a sample Tableau workbook from our drop.io location. After a few clicks, you'll be connected to our server, use the password "dow2009" to log you into the cloud-based Ford-Mergent data base.

    Now you will have access the complete Mergent and Ford files for the Dow 30. We have set up several representative graphic analyses that show what Tableau can do with the data. But you can make your own. You can begin analyzing the data with FRS and get pretty far without any help; or give us a call and we'll give you a remote GotoMeeting demonstration showing how Tableau and Ford/Mergent work together in FRS.

Once you get going, you will quickly see how FRS can make you vastly more productive.
