MarketShark – Stock Fundamentals App For iPhone & iPad + Giveaway


For the casual observer, the standard that comes with the iPhone is solid. It gives users a nice overview of company portfolios and any related news items. However for the seasoned investor, obviously something far more powerful is required.

I was recently introduced to a new stock app called “MarketShark” and from what I’ve seen so far it is one of the most detailed and powerful stock/portfolio tracking apps I’ve ever used.

The feature that stands out to me is that the app does not focus exclusively on price, or a stock value, as the sole measure. Instead, users receive significantly deeper analysis through different ratios, margins, market trends, and company financial statements that include the Balance Sheets, Income Statements, and Cash Flows.

If you’re not a numbers person, then this app will not be useful to you. However if you enjoy tracking company performance and have a passion and understanding of numbers, MarketShark provides you the information you need.

There is truly nothing negative to say about the app because the information is useful and is presented in a very clean manner. However the only aspect of the app that does bother me is the price because $20.00 is fairly hefty even for this type of professional app.

In other words, if you really see value in an app like this, then $20.00 is nothing. But as I said earlier, if you’re into this type of finance, or maybe do not have a better app, then check out MarketShark.

  • Tony Silva

    MarketShark would be useful so that I can track and thoroughly analyze how much Bombardier truly is losing me. Thanks. 

  • B E L

    I’ve been looking for a good stock app. MarketShark would be great to try for free!

  • Dave

    I have 58 stocks in my portfolio, which generate my family’s retirement income. Managing this portfolio takes 2 hours per day. I currently use Yahoo Finance and research on my discount broker’s web site to keep on top of my portfolio. Neither source is particularly mobile device friendly. A huge opportunity has been missed by Yahoo, but that is another story. This app would be extremely useful for managing my portfolio when I do not have access to my desktop. I have searched for a mobile app that comes close to doing what I can do on my desktop. So far, there is nothing out there, and $20 will be a bargain if it can do half of what you can do at my desk.

  • Andrew

    I have been using a few stock apps but none seems to give me detail information.
    By looking at the description of the MarketShark, this app is definitely what I want in an app.

    It would be great to get the promotional code and give it a try.

    This is another comment – I don’t expect another entry…

    After viewing all the info on the app, I sent in the following questions. It will be interesting to see their answers.

    “Does Marketshark have the capability to calculate portfolio income, by month, with currency conversions, based on dividend data and payment dates?

    Until it does I’ll have to keep using my spreadsheets.

    Does it have full dividend data and payment dates for Canadian stocks?

    Does the app pull in the market wire earnings releases for my portfolio, or will I still have to go to Yahoo portfolio for that?”

    I’m still fairly new to the iPhone and from what I read MarketShark seems to be THE app for the mobile  stock investor. I’d love to have a copy of this 🙂

  • PizzaBoy

    marketshark looks like the only app that does what i would need it to do. winning a free copy would also mean that i would save 20 bucks which instead i would invest in an ” extra large all dressed w 3 extra toppings pizza – special” at my local pizza joint! anchovies, black olives and extra cheese…here i come!

  • Perry Young

    A perfect solution to monitoring a Canadian TFSA plan.
