Types of Views

In Stock Rover, Views are containers that are named and contain a list of Stock Rover metrics that are displayed either in table or tile form. For example a View may be named Growth, and it could contain metrics like EPS 1 Year change %, Sales 1 year Change %, PEG Forward, Growth Rating vs. Peers etc.

We have two types of views, the Table View and the Tile View.

The Table View is available in all three paid plans and uses a spreadsheet-like paradigm.

The Tile View is available in the Premium Plus plan only and is a view that displays both tabular and graphical data together.
