Google Finance makes investing information more accessible

There are many questions that come to mind when it comes to investing: Where can I get information on stocks? What numbers and statistics should I look at before I invest? How are my stocks performing in comparison to others? It can be hard to find the right information and even harder to make sense of it. We’ve redesigned Google Finance for both desktop and mobile viewing to help you easily find data for stocks you’re interested in, market trends and relevant news to make more informed investment decisions.

Find the information you need

Understanding context is key to making informed investment decisions. We’ll make it easy for you to find and compare information by organizing it in a helpful way. For example, you can group stocks you follow and build your own “Watchlists,” which will help you find relevant news, stats and earnings details, so you have more context on stock movements. You can also add company events and earnings calls directly to your Google Calendar to stay on top of what’s happening.

Check out stocks, market trends and related news on Google Finance

Create and manage your watchlists on Google Finance


Learn as you go

As you browse through stock details, you’ll find explanations and descriptions of key terms and stats to help you learn as you go. For example if you hover over “market cap,” you’ll get a definition of the term with a badge that lets you know whether the company is a large, mid- or small cap company.

Get real-time data and performance for specific stocks

Create your own portfolios

Later this year, we’ll extend the “Watchlist” feature so you’ll be able to play around with model portfolios. The portfolio feature will  let you create and customize your own portfolio, easily track daily gains or losses and review news that is relevant to your portfolio.The new Google Finance will be available in the U.S. in the coming weeks, with more new features following shortly. Just search for “Google Finance” or visit to check it out.

Sales Director joins Ajax Systems to enhance the presence in the Italian and Iberian markets

Ajax Systems, the developer behind the most award-winning wireless alarm in Europe, has appointed a Regional Sales Director to strengthen the presence in the Italian and Iberian markets and expand the local teams.

Diego Di Giuseppe is a security industry veteran with 15 years of experience behind. Starting as a distributor, he joined an international alarm system manufacturer where he managed the sales team for 5 years. Due to the great results in Italy, he later was promoted to General Manager for the Iberia region where he managed a 40-people multicultural team.

Diego joins Ajax as the head of the Italian and Iberian sales teams and will work towards their active development and growth. He will strengthen the Ajax team from October 5th.

In the IoT era, the intrusion market is strongly asking for changes. Ajax, as an IoT manufacturer with a strong IT DNA focused on providing the next-level user experience, actually is the only company that can drive this old-fashioned market into the future. I want to be a part of this market revolution, helping the company to achieve its ambitious targets.Diego Di Giuseppe, Regional Sales Director for Italy and Iberia at Ajax Systems

Iberia and Italy are one of the first international markets that Ajax has entered. And now they are one of the most successful for us. We’re striving to develop full-fledged local teams there and Diego is our next big step toward this. You will surely hear about many new appointments in these regions soon.Aleksandr Konotopskyi, CEO at Ajax Systems

Ajax Systems officially entered the Italian and Iberian markets in 2016. Since then, the company launched a number of products specifically for the needs of these markets. For example, in reply to the Spanish market’s high demand for photo verification, Ajax released MotionCam detector with a photo camera to verify the alarms. And for the Italian market, the outdoor protection of premises was a big matter — for this request, the company introduced MotionProtect Outdoor, a wireless outdoor motion detector with an advanced anti-masking system and pet-immunity.
