Simplifying Money Matters with Bing

There are times I get to the end of the day and I am wondering where my day went. I am usually thinking this while looking at my “to do” list with nothing checked off and I am asking myself “how can I make this easier?” Well, the team at Bing has recognized this and is trying to make those everyday tasks easier to accomplish while giving you some time back.

Some of you have already seen the recipe pages we launched recently – certainly an action item on a lot of people’s list of things to do is figuring out what will you make for dinner. But if you are like me and are a disaster in the kitchen, an action item for you might be managing your portfolio.  Not only is it something I have to do I actually enjoy researching investments specifically in US stocks and funds.  Given the recent shock to our financial system we have seen more and more people interested in keeping track of what is happening with their money and with the stock market.  Thus we developed  an in-depth “stock and funds pages” which covers most US stocks and funds. 

To see the stocks and funds you are interested in simply enter a ticker in the search box e.g MSFT. Note our “Instant Answer” on top which provides basic data about the firm. If you click on the “Investor Data” tab on the left you go into our finance page

The finance page gives you detailed information about key finance metrics of the firm. It also shows an easy to digest summary of the main analyst covering the stock.  A personal favorite of mine are the lists on the left, which allow you to easily navigate to similar stocks or other leading stocks in the industry.

We cannot predict where the market will go but we can at least give you the information and tools to help you make a decision to buy or sell.

This is just the first release of the Stocks and Funds pages, we will continue to add new information and functionality. Is there anything else you would like to see on these pages? We would love to hear from you.
