... now with the
Conscious Investor Wizard
“It’s like having
your own personal investment expert in your computer.”
Investment software has come a long way from
its origins as a “number crunching” tool to
implement various stock analysis and evaluation functions.
Conscious Investor, which now includes the Conscious Investor
Wizard, is leading the way as Fourth Generation Investment
Dr. John Price has personally programmed almost
20 different stock valuation methods. Next he studied and
evaluated them all. As a starting point for Conscious Investor
he chose the best ideas and then added many layers of research-proven
developments and user-friendly innovations.
The final system combines the best of the
high-speed calculation abilities of modern computers, the
efficient management of stock market databases, and the
advanced functionality of an expert system that provides
analysis, knowledge and guidance at the touch of a button.
No matter whether you are new to investing
or are an experienced professional, Conscious Investor provides
everything that is required.
For new investors Conscious Investor
is there to “hold your hand”. For example, it
provides automatic explanations in plain English for key
charts. These include descriptions and recommendations for
further steps leading to an analysis of whether to buy,
to sell or to do nothing under historical and safety settings.
For experienced professionals it is a total system. It ranges
from scanning individual sectors or the whole market using
default or user-modified research-proven filters through
to the calculation and analysis of the profitability of
the stock under various safety and risk scenarios.
The first applications of computers to the stock market
were to calculate standard well-known functions involved
with the analysis and evaluation of equities. There was
no associated database with the functions often working
in a spreadsheet setting.
This was the phase where databases involving fundamental
and price data were integrated with calculation systems.
This enabled the filtering or screening of thousands of
stocks leading to an output of a small number of companies.
The screening was done using various combinations of functions
and measurements from the first level. Weighting to combine
the measures into a single overall statistic for ranking
purposes may be used.
A thorough analysis of the functions in the first level
showed their inadequacies and weaknesses. This third phase
added completely new research-proven functions specifically
designed to identify quality investments such as stability
of growth and to introduce automatic safety settings for
Conscious Investor This starts with all the best
features from the previous three levels including valuation
methods that are theoretically sound and thoroughly back-tested.
Then it integrates in a seamless way an expert system that
• guides and helps at all key points with just a click
of the Wizard’s wand,
• describes and interprets key charts in plain English,
• thoroughly analyzes whether it is best to buy, sell
or do nothing under historical, safety and user-defined
