Improved Website Performance

By optimizing source files, loading times have been reduced. Images, styles, and scripts are now loaded more efficiently.

Growth Rate Auto-Adjust Feature

​​​​​The Growth Rate Auto-Adjust Feature simplifies changing growth rates in the Forecasting table. When you edit a growth rate for a specific year, the feature automatically maintains other future rates. For instance, if you adjust the 2023 rate from -3.26% to 15%, the feature keeps subsequent rates unchanged while updating future values accordingly.​​​

API Request Limit

The API Request limit was necessary in order to prevent request spam. If the request limit is reached, a 403 Forbidden Error will be displayed.

The limits are the following:

800 requests/hour:

  • Income Statements (Annual, Quarterly, LTM) 
  • Balance Sheet Statement (Annual, Quarterly) 
  • Cash Flow Statement (Annual, Quarterly, LTM) 
  • Ratios
  • Dividends (Annual, As Reported) 
  • Market Prices (Daily, Annual) 

1600 requests/hour:

  • Quote
  • Profile
  • Treasury Yields (Daily, Monthly, Annual)
  • FX
  • Risk Premium

Slugified URLs for Default Valuation Models

URL paths to standard valuation models have been updated for more meaningful redirection.

For instance, the previous path to the Simple Dividend Discount Model for Apple was: https://discountingcashflows.com/company/AAPL/valuation/default/9/ The new path is now: https://discountingcashflows.com/company/AAPL/valuation/simple-dividend-discount-model/

Note the inclusion of "simple-dividend-discount-model" in the URL. The old paths still work and will redirect to the new slugified paths.
