Pros

  • Data aggregation and charting. We consistently use Capital IQ's data collection abilities for comparing multiple indices and/or individual publicly traded securities.
  • Excel integration. Cap IQ's Excel plug-in is extremely useful for performing valuation analyses, and allows one to easily update key market metrics for ongoing use.
  • Transaction monitoring. Cap IQ maintains a reliable and continuously updated store of M&A transactions that one can reference for the purpose of analyzing deal activity in a particular industry subsector.

Cons

  • User Interface. While Cap IQ is generally user friendly, the software can be unwieldy on certain internet browsers, and methods for compiling specific market data can be challenging at times (as it relates to charting).
  • Debt Market Data. Cap IQ's capabilities on reporting bankruptcies and statistics related to bankruptcies could use some refining, particularly for investors who frequently look at distressed debt or special situations investments.

Alternatives Considered

While Bloomberg has a much more comprehensive view of the markets and typically has more up-to-date information in terms of overall news, Cap IQ is easier to integrate into existing financial models, and the formula builder included with the Excel plugin makes it easy to pull relevant financial data as well as update it based on a specific time frame.
