From finding a gem of a stock to doing your own research



Imagine this: you’ve read about a little-known company, which is set to be the next big thing.

But you’re unsure what your next move should be? Do you trust that information, and go “all-in”?

Absolutely not!

The next steps you take should always be the same: research, research, research.

And that’s why the app, or broker you use, must have access to real-time comprehensive research, news and insightful analysis. It is in those finer details that can make the difference in an investment opportunity.

So, who offers the best – whether free or paid – to the research platforms?

If you’re wanting to get your research and news from the likes of AccessWire, MTNewswires, UBS,, QuantConnect or Quantum Research Group (just to name a few), there’s only a few places to go. One being Interactive Brokers, another being Charles Schwab

What makes these two stand out is the breadth and range of economic news and platforms available to prospective investors, but nudging ahead is Interactive Brokers, by several reasons: the fees payable and the ability to use this information whilst in demo/paper mode.

This means you can test out everything you have read, without actually making – or more importantly losing – money.

And if you do wish to use a paid feature for Research, a small fee is retained to cover administrative and other costs in relation to the provision of these data services. The rest goes to the vendor.

TikTok’s parent company loses $7bn



TikTok’s Parent company sees losses grow as it tries to outplay Facebook, Instagram and YouTube

TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, has experienced a loss of more than $7 billion dollars in operating costs, tripling last year’s records.

The company attributes the huge loss to its massive investment in global growth. It detailed the results in a financial report which was provided to internal stakeholders.

In the first quarter of 2022, the company recorded a profit in its operating costs, with the company’s revenue expanding by more than 80% to $61.7 billion in 2021.

But expenses that are focused on expanding its products worldwide continue to swell at a rapid rate.

While TikTok is one of ByteDance’s most successful and well-known products, the company owns a wide range of digital platforms including: Douyin, Toutiao, Vigo Video, Helo, Lark and BytePlus. In total, it attracts hundreds of millions of users in China alone and 1 billion TikTok users worldwide.

The internal report was emailed to all ByteDance’s 130,000 employees. In a note of assurance, company execs “remain confident in the strength of our business and organisation.”

The ability for ByteDance to continue to invest in the company’s growth is clearly a strong advantage the company has over its competitors in the market.

A new report found Australians spent more time on TikTok in the last 12 months than on Facebook, a leader for many years in the space.

With other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube scrambling to compete with TikTok, it seems ByteDance must have a long-term expansion strategy in mind.

The company is evidently trying to arrive at a place where such massive losses relating to operating will be a distant memory.
