Thomson and Dow Jones deliver MarketView; adds WSS dashboard to One Equity


Thomson Financial, an operating unit of The Thomson Corporation (TSX: TOC; NYSE: TOC) and leading provider of information and technology solutions to the worldwide financial community, today announced the launch of Thomson MarketView which provides stock and industry analytics for enhanced investment selection. The service will be available on Thomson ONE, a flexible, open application framework that allows for the easy integration of content and tools from Thomson Financial, third parties and proprietary systems.

Combining a targeted selection of timely news and market commentary from Dow Jones Newswires with Thomson's independent research, ratings and market data, Thomson MarketView is a premium feature that provides users with valuation analysis and investment strategies in a streamlined, easy-to-read format. Thomson MarketView delivers in-depth stock analysis, as well as intra- day updates on industry and market activities, idea generation and portfolio monitoring capabilities. This powerful new tool allows financial advisors, institutional traders and portfolio managers to generate trading ideas and present suitable investment recommendations.

Key features of Thomson MarketView (available via Thomson One) include:
  • Comprehensive stock analysis - in-depth analysis on more than 7,500 large-, mid- and small-cap stocks, including an independent assessment of key trends using Thomson Stock Ratings on earnings, fundamental, valuation, price momentum, insider activity and risk.
  • Detailed reports and idea generation tools - series of reports highlight key elements of a targeted stock and are designed to help generate compelling investment ideas.
  • Targeted, Timely News and Headlines - A focused selection of Dow Jones news is integrated throughout the application to offer timely and reliable access to top news stories that are driving market and security-specific activity. Dow Jones coverage includes market commentary, hourly recaps, analysts' ratings changes and exclusive technical analysis.

    "The Thomson MarketView feature is available via Thomson ONE and delivers a powerful combination of Thomson content, analytics and independent ratings with timely and reliable financial news from Dow Jones," said William O'Conor, Managing Director, Retail Wealth Management, Thomson Financial. "Our ability to offer these new features further demonstrates our commitment to delivering world-class desktop solutions to our clients."

    "At Dow Jones, we are focused on bringing our customers information solutions they can use to be more successful," said Joseph Lanza, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Dow Jones Newswires. "The integration of targeted Dow Jones news into Thomson MarketView is a compelling example of this approach."

    Separately, Thomson Financial today announced that Wall Street Source's (WSS) new Dashboard toolbar has been integrated onto Thomson ONE Equity, the comprehensive solution for the institutional market. Thomson ONE Equity grants easy integrated access to quotes, monitors, news, research, notes, tickers and charting packages and offers links to the pre-and post trade community through Thomson AutEx, the extensive buy- and sell-side global network.

    WSS Dashboard is designed to take up a minimum of space on the Thomson ONE Equity desktop screen, while providing powerful access to a full range of Wall Street Source's data feeds and applications. Dashboard's streamlined architecture makes it possible for the Thomson ONE user to keep the Web-based toolbar open all day long for quick and easy access to financial news, information and data.

    Wall Street Source combats the information overload experienced by today's market professionals by serving as a filter and aggregating in a user-friendly format only what's relevant. WSS staffs its own news organization and develops more than 7000 proprietary news stories and countless reports distilled from the approximately 40,000 market-related articles published daily. The powerful WSS platform cuts through the noise of the marketplace, letting the user access only the information that is needed, when it is needed. Configured to the individual, it seamlessly integrates news and information, providing proprietary content ranging from Morning Call and Top Stories, to Hotpage and Upgrades, along with direct links to applications such as Thomson Financial's First Call Earnings and Worldscope.

    "We're excited about Thomson integrating Wall Street Source into Thomson ONE -- an amazing platform that is by far ahead of any other," said John Albert, chief executive officer, Wall Street Source. "Thomson ONE's vast reach will drive the distribution and accessibility of WSS which is being integrated with other key information sources. Dashboard will help Thomson ONE customers harness the power of WSS's news and information infrastructure and technology while saving valuable screen space," said Albert.

    "The WSS Dashboard reinforces and adds value to the vision of Thomson ONE as a total workflow solution for professionals in the institutional equities marketplace," said Christopher Perry, executive vice president, Thomson Financial. "Investment professionals struggle with information overload. WSS furthers the power of Thomson ONE Equity in dealing with the overwhelming nature of today's markets, providing the user with a laser-like focus to define high priority information. Ultimately, we are reducing the noise, and providing the ability to make better decisions faster. The easy-to-use dashboard is fully integrated into the Thomson ONE Equity workflow," said Perry.
