Quandl Has a New Look

Today we’re launching a brand refresh for Quandl, which you can see on our website. These updates reflect the exciting road we’ve traveled - from our roots as a “financial search engine,” to the platform we are today - the premier source of financial, economic, and alternative data for investment professionals. Quandl’s early platform aggregated a large amount of “data in the wild”, made it searchable and offered users a better consumption experience than was commercially available. The search aspect of Quandl was and still is an important feature of the product, and formed the basis of our original logo...

One belief unites them all: that their data holds value for capital markets. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Because in life, nothing is ever easy....

Shares dropped sharply in Friday morning trading after the company reported a loss of 60 cents per share on $240.56 million in revenue. Analyst expectations were much milder at a loss of 36 cents per share on $314.06 million in revenue. GoPro cited production issues as the cause for both the third quarter miss and the guidance for Q4. Prior to the earnings announcement, most pundits were bullish – or at least neutral –  on GoPro: see MarketWatch coverage, AmigoBulls, and this note from Raymond James. This is...
