What's New
Version 2.3:
  • Columns are added that show the % change for the Day, Week, Month, Quarter, and Year. You can quickly see what happened to the S&P 500, or any other WatchList by looking at these columns. These statistics now apply to both the groups and the individual files.
  • You can double-click on these columns to sort the Navigator by that category. In particular, see the the "Sectors" tab, and sort the best performing sectors to the top.
  • A Sectors tab is added that tracks sectors and industry groups.
  • You can now double click on an information category in the table in the Charts View and sort by that category.
  • A special feature was added for international stocks. Different websites, such as Yahoo and MSN, use different symbols for international stocks. Stock WatchTower attempts to convert these automatically, but there are some exceptions. You can now specify these exceptions by going the the Chart View and clicking on the tab for the particular website, such as MSN. There is a field in which you can change the symbol used for that particular stock.
  • WatchLists are cleaned to remove any empty symbols.  This occurred previously with the Industry Group automatic WatchLists and led to many error messages.  These incorrect symbols are now removed from the WatchLists

    As someone who loves the Mac and who has lived with a lack of quality investing programs for the Mac, Stock Watchtower is a well written and continually improving program that simply has no peer on the Mac (or windows).

    For the amount of data that can used in evaluation of potential investments, the price for this program is very reasonable. Users can select from a myriad of possible data fields and filter a universe of stocks down to a manageable list of candidates in minutes. Then, it gives you the ability to view weekly and daily charts to give you a visual perspective. You can set high and low price targets as alarms. For the data massaging fanataics out there, you can also copy the data int excel and have a field day with it.

    A high speed connection is a necessity because an update download can be > 250mb. But since this program replaces previously downloaded data with a current snapshot of the market, the hard drive space required for it stays at about the same as the download size.

    Yes, even with a broadband connection this takes over an hour to update, but this can be done in the background. And it doesn't appear to bother other programs running on my Mac.

    Since the data is being grabbed from various sites on the net, the programmers of this software will have to be responsive to changes in URLs that it collects data from. That is, be timely with updating the program so all data can remain accessible to the program.

    All in all, this is very good tool for Mac investors. Watch out ... using it can be addictive!

    For the new investors it is great program. Those who download this program should learn the CAN SLIM way of investing. Its great to see a program like this that is done in Macintosh. Version 1.20 is now out from the Developers home page. So quit buying all those made in China CDs, Tapes & Junk you really don't need any way from Wal-mart and invest in yourself. It opens up a whole new world. Because it has for me.

    Stock WatchTower is used to quickly find and analyze growth stocks by using your high-speed Internet connection to organize data and charts from multiple websites. How much time do you spend sorting through the same stocks each day? Stock WatchTower will increase your efficiency by allowing you to focus on those stocks that are approaching key decision points.

    Stock WatchTower focuses on two key areas of investing in growth stocks: finding stocks with promising characteristics, and providing the information needed for you to analyze the stocks after they are found.

    Promising growth stocks are found by downloading information for all stocks, and then grouping the stocks for further analysis. Each stock tends to follow a trend, and Stock WatchTower uses the principle of assigning a type of "base" in order to describe each trend. Stocks showing the same trend are then grouped in Smart WatchTowers in order to quickly analyze stocks with similar characteristics. A Smart WatchTower can also change the base automatically based on your own criteria. For example, a stock that is above its 50-Day Moving Average and is approaching a fresh 52-Week High may be ready to break out to new highs and start an uptrend. You can also refine these criteria by adding other factors, such as if the stock is in a top performing Industry Group, is showing high Relative Strength, and has high earnings and sales growth rates.

    Stock WatchTower then helps you to analyze these promising stocks so that you can make a buy decision. Presenting fundamental and technical information alongside weekly and daily charts does this. This information is derived from multiple websites, and you can select which information is highlighted in this detailed display. You can also jump to your favorite website to quickly look at its information for that particular stock. Stock WatchTower also retains articles that you downloaded from your favorite websites that you can then refer to for a trade.

    The price is $25, $50, or $100 depending on the version that you order, and there is no need for a monthly fee for data.
