S&P Capital IQ

Cap IQ is well suited for analyzing security pricing and valuation, tracking stock performance over time, looking up comparable transactions, and analyzing valuations on an industry basis. The service is also well suited for charting and data analysis purposes.

CB Insights

  • Transparency - lets me separate the hype from the reality.
  • Real-time intelligence-packed reporting. The graphs and metrics they provide along with their perspectives allow anyone to apply their own understanding and reproduce a nearly identical perspective.
  • Their daily e-newsletter is chock full of intelligence presented in such a fun and entertaining way, it makes you want to pay for it too!

Cons

S&P Capital IQ

  • Sources. In Bloomberg, when you click on a figure anywhere it leads you to the source. That is a great feature, as in finance everything has to be backed with the original source.
  • Cannot always find the needed information, the menu is too complex.

Alternatives Considered

S&P Capital IQ

We had Capital IQ in addition to Bloomberg. It was much easier for a new person to use Capital IQ than Bloomberg. The ease of use was a huge selling point for us. Yahoo finance on the other hand is free, but you cannot gather all the data you may need in one location like you can in Capital IQ.

CB Insights

Pitch book was our favorite resource, until we started using CB Insights. CB Insights just has far better coverage and include very extensive private company intelligence too which adds a level of customer insight accuracy that no one else can.

Return on Investment

S&P Capital IQ

  • It provides a good source for an analyst in researching certain information relating to companies and industries that the organization is investing in, having a reliable source for this kind of information lets us avoid losses caused by inaccurate data.
  • Given that it allows analysts to search more efficiently and effectively, overtimes attributed to further research requirements are lessened hence contributing to cost savings.

CB Insights

  • Positive in both volume and detail of the most relevant information upon which to make key strategic decisions.
  • It's not an inexpensive service, but worth the price given the accuracy, timeliness and criticality of the information they are able to provide.
  • Strategy - strategy - strategy! There's no way anyone could gather that much intelligence in just one stop with any other service.
