CevApps recently got plenty of new services that work with your CevApps account. You may not need it right now, or you could find it useful in your job.
Try it. adopt it. Get connected. Be productive.

With Google Finance, you can follow markets, companies, currencies.
With your CevApps account, you can personalize Google Finance to match your needs.

If you want to know more about one of your client, competitor or supplier, maybe you can find information on Google Finance on them.

The easiest way to do so is to create one or several portfolios in which you can follow companies on US markets.

As an example I set-up 2 portfolios. One for Animal Heamth companies, in Euros, one for Poultry companies, in USD.

This is how it looks like :
In the Animal Health Companies portfolio, I added Vetoquinol and Virbac while in the Poultry portfolio, I added Tyson, Brasil Food, Pilgrim's Pride and others.

If you choose to view Tyson detailed dashboard, either click here or check following image.
You will find the whole set of financial data, plus news, and future financial events that you can add directly in your CevApps calendar. If you check carefully, you will discover key stats and ratios, and plenty of other public information.

If I want to be sure not to miss the Q3 earnings Conference Call, then I just have to click in front of the event (see Events in the middle right of the image), and I will get following entry in my calendar :

You can follow currency information by searching for keywords such as CURRENCY:EUR
This is how it looks like today :

Comparing 2 currencies is as simple as searching for the 2 currency strings joined : enter EURBRL for Euros and Brazilian Reals

You can also directly use the Currency converter, which let you choose 2 currencies and an amount and calculates the conversion rate.
You can bookmark the link to be able to quickly go to a preconfigured conversion.

Google Finance for CevApps let you follow financial data, mainly from the US market, but also news on companies, even if they are privately owned. Just perform a search on the company name and you will get some information on the company and the related news and companies.
