How does Gainy analyze stocks?

Gainy divides stocks into groups based on a number of factors. We start with assigning each stock to an industry. Then we use custom formulas to separate each industry into a number of collections of stocks. The idea behind collections is that stocks within each collection should be analyzed together. For each collection you would probably want to use one or another set of metrics to compare and analyze stocks.

How does personalization work?

We analyzed what people search for online and company descriptions to find out what’s popular and what companies do. Then we used our in-house NLP engine to create digestible, interesting themed collections. Our recommendation engine uses machine learning to make it relevant and dynamic over time, so the more you use Gainy the better your recommendations become.

Can I trade using Gainy?

Not now, but we’re planning to offer trading further down the road.
