New Version of EPIC

Ford Equity Research, in conjunction with its sister company Intrinsic Research, announce the release of a new version of the EPIC research application. The new version offers improved access to Fordís daily fundamental data, proprietary research and stock selection models. Coverage includes the US data as well as the ability to access the ADR and Canadian databases. Users will find it easier to create screens, sectors, portfolios, reports, custom variables, custom stock selection models and graphic displays of historical data. The enhanced version utilizes a new Windows interface with enhanced navigation and calculation features. Data is accessed through secure, centralized servers utilizing the userís normal internet browser access port. The database and user custom calculations are automatically updated each evening and there are many enhancements listed below that substantially cut down access time to our research. We will be contacting clients to help them convert to the new version and will target phasing out the old Windows program by year end, 2016.
