Insight Guru, Inc. operates through its website Trefis, that provides information on trends, forecasts, insights about companies for investors and experts in particular fields.
The company was incorporated in 2007 and is based in Boston, Massachusetts as an interactive financial community structured around trends, forecasts and insights related to some of the most popular stocks in the US.
Whereas most finance sites simply give you the facts about where a stock has been and what a company has done in the past, Trefis focuses entirely on the future. The price of a stock is determined by what will happen in the future, not what has happened in the past.
Trefis analysts spend weeks evaluating each stock that we cover and utilize commonly used valuation methodologies to determine a Trefis price for each company. We present you with not only our synthesized view but also every single step within the valuation process used to determine the Trefis price.
Structure, transparency and modifiability are our core principles. Our analysis of each company is structured by division and by forecast within each division. Our forecasts and the corresponding rationale are transparent to all and each forecast assumption that has an impact on the Trefis price is modifiable by users. The result is a community that can have meaningful conversations around structured financial information and share their views backed by analysis.
Currently Trefis covers more than 200 major stocks across technology, telecom, media, consumer, retail, automotive, financial services and energy industries and will be expanding to other industries like health care in the future.
