SI Pro is definitely worth the value. Now, I have to say that I let my subscription lapse at the end of 2004, with some misgivings, but not because it was not good; simply that for personal reasons I was not doing the things with it that I had been doing earlier.What were those things: I'd developed procedures that enabled me to emulate the Foolish 8 system for identifying small cap companies worth further investigation, for one. I'd also developed procedures for emulating the "Benchmark Investing" strategy that has been written about on another message board..... these are just examples. I'd also developed my own system for comparing any two companies in the same industry against each other and against their industry median values. All of this was in Excel, using data exported from SI Pro.Very powerful and useful database --- it does help to be comfortable with data analysis, and with tools like Excel. SI Pro, by itself, has limitations that can be frustrating. There's a wealth of information (seven years of very comprehensive history on companies included, which is just about every publicly traded company), but I found pretty quickly that I had to export data to Excel to be able to do the kind of comparisons that really help you differentiate one company from another, using side-by-side comparisons. That couldn't be done anywhere near as easily within SI Pro, just because of the way it retrieves and displays information.mathetes
