This latest groundbreaking technology is IBKR GlobalAnalyst, a new trading tool that helps investors compare the rate of PEG or price-earnings growth valuations and provide more immediate and comprehensive financial metrics of stocks, globally.

Recognizing that stock selection can be challenging for investors to compare the valuations of domestic and international stocks, Interactive Brokers created GlobalAnalyst to offer investors a simple, yet powerful tool to easily evaluate investment opportunities around the world.

Using GlobalAnalyst, investors can search for stocks by region, country, industry, market capitalization and currency to uncover undervalued stocks worldwide. The resulting table displays the current market and financial metrics, including the PEG Ratio. The PEG Ratio is the PE ratio divided by the three-year compound earnings growth rate, and smaller PEG Ratios typically indicate undervalued companies.

Features to Look for in Communication Services Stock

  • Shareholders’ equity or book value: Book value is the difference between the company’s assets and its liabilities (including the value of any preferred stock that the company has issued). Book value per share is the number most investors are interested in.

For stocks with a great long-term potential, consider a book value per share that isn’t out of line with that of similar companies in the same sector.

  • Return on equity. This is a company’s net profit after tax deduction divided by the book value. It shows how much a company is drawing on the stockholders’ stake in the stock. If the return on equity shows consistent growth, the stock’s price will exhibit long-term strength. A steady return in equity of more than 15% may indicate a company that knows how to manage itself properly.
  • A leader in its sector: A company gains several advantages by being No. 1 or 2 in its primary sector. An industry leader can influence pricing instead of merely reacting to what others do. It also has a bigger market presence – new products have a higher chance of being accepted.

Your New Safe Haven

A majority of companies in the communication sector depend heavily on recurring revenue, while others like Google and Facebook earn from advertising. The 5G rollout expected to increase network speeds means communication service companies will continue to create demand and growth potential.
