Stock analysis for dividend paying stocks

Customer

Myself

Task

Construction of a data collecting and analysis software for analyzing dividend paying stocks for long-term investment. The system needs to provide short response times and should provide all data on as few screens as possible.

Time period

2016

Technology

Data collection is done by PHP-based web crawlers, data for analysis tasks is provided by a JavaScript-based front-end and a PHP-based backend system providing REST API. MySQL database stays in the background.

Framework

Vue.js reactive JavaScript framework drives the user interface on the front-end (similar to Facebook’s React),  Google Charts for the charts, Slim PHP framework for providing REST API. Data collection uses the plugin-architecture developed in the GMA project.

Details

I have learned the dividend growth stock analysis method of Dávid Sólyomi for analyzing dividend paying stocks for long-term investment. As a drawback of his method, I have found difficult to gather data for the analysis from various sources. This feeling of discomfort called this system alive. One of its main tasks is to collect data in a scheduled manner from various sources freely available on the internet. Other main task is to provide a sufficiently fast-responding user interface for analysis and decision preparation.

The system is currently not available publicly, although access can be granted upon request — language of the system is currently Hungarian, but I can translate it easily if I see a stable need for that.
