Tool Kit

  • Stock Screening Tips - A stock screening resource page with links to HTML based screeners. Visit http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~mpsif/screener.html
  • Investext - Full text investment reports produced by Wall Street and international brokerage firms for industries and publicly held companies around the world. http://library.nyu.edu/collections/investext.html You can use Investext from any PC located at NYU. To use Investext from your home or office, you'll need to set up a "proxy server." (See next topic.)
  • Setting up a Proxy Server - When you use a proxy server, it looks as if you're logged on at Stern, even though you're at home or some distant hotel using AOL or a cable model. To set up your home PC with a proxy server, follow this link. http://www.nyu.edu/its/faq/connecting/proxy.html

    NOTE WELL: You'll need your NYU ID (not your Stern ID) to log on to the proxy server. Each member of the NYU community is assigned a NetID. Your NetID is printed on your NYU ID card.
  • Virtual Business Library - provides access to the electronic business resources and services available through Bobst Library. http://www.nyu.edu/library/bobst/vbl . For example, once you are at the NYU Virtual Business Library, click on "Company & Financial Information" (upper left) and then click on "Thomson Research" (lower left). Enter a ticker symbol and see what data appear, including I/B/E/S consensus earnings (lower left). This is another resource you can access from home with a proxy server.
    Other resources available at VBL under "Company and Financial Information" include:
    • Value Line Research Center
    • Standard & Poor's "Net Advantage" - allowing access to a wide array of S&P research.
    • Morningstar - with reports and "fair value" analytics on many stocks.  

  • Lexis-Nexis - Can be accessed at http://web.lexis-nexis.com/universe
  • Guide to Bloomberg http://www.stern.nyu.edu/it/guides/bloomberg.html
