What is FAST Graphs™?
FAST Graphs™ is the "Fundamentals Analyzer Software Tool;" a stock research tool that empowers subscribers to conduct fundamental stock research deeper and faster. Developed to provide "essential fundamentals at a glance," they are offered as a fast and efficient "tool to think with."

Within a matter of minutes, subscribers can examine the relationship of operating results to stock price performance on thousands of companies. The US and Canadian version of FAST Graphs™ has access to up to 20 years of historical fundamental data on thousands of U.S. and Canadian public companies. The FAST Graphs™ stock research tool takes all the hours of manual stock researching of business fundamentals and reduces it to seconds, giving you critical stock research information in an instant.
