“The Miner” mines fiscal data on public companies.
A typical inquiry might ask for a short list of all companies trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange where their Working Capital and Market Cap satisfy specific constraints.
Miner obtains a current list of all companies trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and hunts them up on the Google, Yahoo and Microsoft finance web sites.
For each company Miner obtains the Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Income Statements, passes the data to Excel for analysis and receives a summary report in reply.
If the summary report indicates that the company satisfies the fiscal constraints, then the company is passed on to the client as a candidate.
