[prMac.com] Princeton, New Jersey - Sender Software LLC today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Stock Grader 2.0, an update to its stock analyst for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. With a clean and intuitive interface, Stock Grader automatically analyzes key financial data and grades the company's stock so the user can make informed investment decisions.
"If you're searching for a little extra information on a stock before deciding whether to invest, this app may help you," says Lance Davis of Bankrate. "The app gives a letter grade to a stock's profitability, efficiency, liabilities and valuation, while also providing info on other criteria, such as the price-earnings ratio. It's easy to use and can efficiently provide key information on potential investments." (19 Sept 2014)

After fetching the data and running the calculations, Stock Grader assigns the company's stock a letter grade. Stock Grader grades on a basic A, B, C, D, or F system. Grades are assessed according to an analysis of four aspects of the business: Profitability, Efficiency, Liabilities, and Valuation.
The Profitability grade assesses a company's ability to profit and grow. The grade on Efficiency reflects the company's ability to use resources efficiently. The Liabilities grade indicates the amount of risk and how the company uses debt. The Valuation grades is a measure of how the company is currently priced. Each of these aspects contributes to the aggregated score that is calculated and displayed as an overall stock grade.
Within each category, Stock Grader calculates and displays the data that contributes to the calculations of each of the four categories. This data is presented in the following subcategories:
* Profit margin
* Earning growth rate
* Return on equity
* Return on assets
* Debt ratio
* P/E ratio
* P/B ratio
* P/S ratio

Version 2.0 features significant changes including a brand-new private database that now covers a wider spectrum of stocks. The update also provides improvements to formulas and calculations for a more accurate and informed grading system for users of all experience levels.
"Stock Grader is a personal analyst in your pocket," explains Ben Sender, owner of Sender Software. "Using nearly a dozen financial criteria and advanced computer algorithms, Stock Grader digs deep into your stocks, automatically grading them to help you make confident, informed investment decisions. Shortly after the release of Version 1.0, we had email complaints and negative reviews coming in - users were unhappy with Stock Grader's limited coverage. We listened, and with this major update Stock Grader has gotten its own private database. Now Stock Grader will be able to cover large-caps and micro-caps, the famous and the obscure, and all that's in-between. To ensure maximum coverage, Stock Grader's database will continually be updated and expanded. Take the emotion out of investing and put technology on your side with Stock Grader."
