The partnership will provide visitors to thestar.com with unlimited
access to comprehensive stock market and mutual fund data, as well as a
powerful portfolio management tool and market analysis.
Beginning today, visitors to thestar.com can access new and improved
tools now powered by Morningstar:
– Stock Centre provides users with basic market data and Morningstar
Quicktake(R) Reports on virtually every publicly-traded North
American company. The reports include stock price, volume and yields,
performance comparisons and charts.
– Fund Centre provides users with Quicktake(R) Reports that include
comparative performance data for Canadian mutual funds, rates of
return (before and after tax), and Morningstar Analyst Reports.
– Portfolio Manager is a powerful tool to track investments, including
charts that show performance by sector and investment type. Users
will have access to Morningstar’s Portfolio X-Ray(R) tool to screen
portfolios and expose stock, geographic and style overlap.
– My Watch List is a quick list of user-selected stocks or funds that
can be monitored throughout the day. The existing Portfolio Manager
and My Watch List services will be enhanced with Morningstar’s
leading investment information.
“Partnering with thestar.com is an excellent opportunity to reach
investors across Canada to help facilitate a better investing experience. Our
mission is to empower investors by providing industry-leading data and
analytics,” said Scott Mackenzie, President and CEO of Morningstar Canada.
“Additionally, we are excited about our partnership with thestar.com as it
marks Morningstar Canada’s first agreement with a major daily newspaper’s
website,” he added.
“The Toronto Star provides visitors to thestar.com with unlimited access
to the comprehensive information that they need throughout their day,” said
Sharon Dean, Director, Online Operations and Site Development, Toronto Star.
“Our partnership with Morningstar further demonstrates our commitment to
providing visitors with personalized, customizable tools and features.”
Because of the addition of Morningstar services, current users of
Portfolio Manager and My Watch List must re-register. The process is quick,
and can be done by launching a second browser window simultaneously to help
re-enter the subscriber’s portfolio information. The current Portfolio Manager
will be available for the next 60 days.
