Better Computer Models Enhance Financial Planning Web TheStreet.com (08/26/00) Vol. 104, No. 34 p.1C; Ingebretsen, Mark
New computer models offer financial planning sites
performance enhancing features. One site to prosper from
upgraded financial planning technology is FinPortfolio.com. At
the heart of the site's application is an industry-standard
financial planning tool that shows users how to separate their
stock and fund holdings among asset classes to accomplish their
financial objectives and deconstruct their current portfolio.
FinPortfolio.com also allows users to search for higher returns
in exchange for greater risk. Similarly, the ValuEngine.com site
is equipped with a stock evaluation tool based on a computer
model. Among other highlights, the ValueEngine.com site provides
users with a variety of methods to "tweak" their portfolio
allocations and prognosticates the chances of a stock doubling in
price up to three years in advance.
