INTRINIO SECURES $5 MILLION IN SERIES A FINANCING ROUND LED BY NYCA PARTNERS

Financial data platform poised to aggressively expand and continue providing the most affordable, accessible data to financial programmers 

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL (April 24, 2019)– Intrinio announced today that it has raised $5m in a Series A Financing Round led by Nyca Partners (Nyca), with participation from existing investors, Engage, Bascom Ventures and VilCap Investments. Intrinio democratizes market data – enabling fintech developers to efficiently incorporate vast amounts of data in their applications in minutes. This investment will allow Intrinio to expand its product development, data coverage, and market penetration to further make an impact on the fintech developer and institutional investment landscape. Nyca Investment Partner Tom Miglis will join Intrinio’s Board of Directors.

Nyca Partners invests and cultivates the next generation of Fintech companies that integrate technological innovation directly into the global financial system. It boasts a team with strong experience in financial infrastructure, and is led by Hans Morris, a former senior executive at Citigroup and President of Visa.

Intrinio was founded by Rachel Carpenter and Joey French, fintech developers whose original start-up was thwarted by the exorbitant pricing of data. After this experience, they created Intrinio to break down this barrier by building a data platform that reinvents the way data is sourced, cleaned and distributed. Intrinio’s transparent pricing and flexible licensing options are a breath of fresh air in an industry that has resisted technological innovation for the sake of preserving profit margins. Over the past few years, Intrinio’s platform has begun to redefine data delivery for both the largest financial institutions and the smallest fintech innovators.

“Our team continues to build the best data infrastructure possible for programmers and data scientists since they are the future of the financial industry. Our model bypasses traditional vendors, delivering instant, a-la-carte, and powerful data feeds straight to the hands of innovators. This is all supported by powerful infrastructure that streamlines the data supply chain and presents a massive opportunity for financial institutions to rethink data sourcing and governance.”

At Intrinio, data scientists collide with CPAs and entrepreneurs in an environment that fosters consistent innovation which creates features that are for developers because they are by developers. Access to the data is instant, and uniquely a-la-carte or bundled, giving users the choice. This year as Intrinio expands and continues to serve programmers and institutions, the future of fintech is increasingly – “Powered by Intrinio”.

“Intrinio is solving the cost and complexity conundrum of market data feeds which are critical for innovation.  Rachel and Joey identified this roadblock and solved it for themselves and are now making it easy and cheap for others looking to build their financial tools. Expensive market data killed lots of good fintech ideas, and Intrinio can help them flourish,” said Hans Morris of Nyca.

About Intrinio

Intrinio is a financial data company on a mission to power fintech innovation by providing affordable, high-quality data to developers and engineers from fintech companies, large institutions, hedge funds, startups, and universities. The Intrinio platform consists of an application programming interface (API) supported by over 300 types of financial data feeds that can be easily integrated into applications, websites, widgets, algorithms, and next-generation financial tools.

Intrinio by Courtney Lothridge - 3M ago
At Intrinio, we're proud to power the people powering fintech!

And we're here to show them off in our Customer Success Spotlight!

The Company

Threadvest is a platform that provides simple yet powerful insights into the world of ETF investing through institutional data processing and article content. Our ETF Miner allows users to search through thousands of US-issued ETFs based on their interest and priorities and then links to brokerages so users can purchase those funds directly.

The Challenge

Threadvest supports more than 2,000 US issued ETFs through its web architecture. Each of the ETFs has dozens of data fields describing the ETF, its performance, mission, and other various parameters. We wanted to make the process of finding an ETF simple therefore we came up with ETF Miner. ETF Miner is a web-based architecture which allows users to scan through ETFs based on their interests, priorities, and goals. The main challenge was to find a partner with enough data to power our methodology that processes all the relevant ETF metrics.

The Solution

After looking at several vendors we decided to partner with Intrinio data to power our ETF Miner. Currently, we receive and process a large amount of data each day. The use of Intrinio and their First Bridge ETF data for us is threefold.

  1. ETF characteristics – we selected a few fields that we find most important when an investor is looking at an ETF investment. We try to keep it simple and to the point without crowding our page with nice to have data points.

  1. ETF Miner user priorities – each user is asked to align four priorities – Fee, Tenure, Size and Spread. These are four concepts that we think every user looking to invest should know about and should have an opinion which one is more important than the other one.

  1. ETF Miner Proprietary analysis – this is the step that consumes that most of Intrinio data. We do ask investors to rank priorities, however, we also want to make sure we don’t miss other important aspects of the ETF as an investment. Some of these concepts are more complicated and asking a user to have an opinion would mean that we assume all our users are experts at the topic which does not have to be true. Also, some of the considerations are universally agreed upon to be important and calculations on this happen behind the scene. For example, if there are two similar ETFs, but one is more concentrated than the other, our model would favor the one that is more diversified. Other aspects that our ETF Proprietary Analysis takes into account are historical vs current volatility, legal structure etc.
The Impact

ETF Miner has been live for about a month and a half. Our development queue still runs long, and we are always tweaking and trying to improve to deliver the best experience to our users. For the short amount of time we have been around, the Miner has been used several hundred times, and we have been able to find a few hundred ETFs for our users. Intrinio has been a great partner throughout our journey. The responsiveness of the team and the quick turnaround made it a pleasure to work together. The data we receive is so comprehensive that now we are probably using roughly 35% of it. As our product grows, and the development work continues we are looking to expand and start using more of the data we get. In the same time, we would like to stay true to our mission where we provide our users with only the most relevant data and we keep the big data processing behind the scenes.

These are their stories.

Investing can be difficult, especially with the number of options there are to choose from, and the vast amount of ratios and other analytics you can use to determine which investment opportunity is best suited to your needs and goals.

This is where Threadvest steps in.

What is Threadvest?

Threadvest is a unique SEC Investment Advisory firm, and their ETF Miner is here to make investing in Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) easier for everyone.

Additionally, Threadvest has their own investments that can be tracked publicly along with the commentary for users to gain insight into their performance and the market in general.

What is The ETF Miner?

The Threadvest ETF Miner searches through hundreds of ETFs and presents users with the optimal ETFs dependent upon the user’s area of interest and investment goals.

Once a user has selected their chosen ETFs they’re able to execute the purchase immediately on the Threadvest platform through their broker of choice. Thanks to Threadvest’s partnership with TradeIt, the following brokerages are supported on the platform: Ally Invest, Robinhood, E*TRADE, Tradier Brokerage, Vanguard, and TradeStation.

How Does The ETF Miner Work?

Users will select their area of interest from an offering of ETFs that have been trending recently, or they can type a different category into the search bar and choose that.

Once users have selected their ETF category, they will then rank their priorities.

They then select their investment goal. Once this is done, the ETF Miner will search through hundreds of ETFs and show the user the ETFs that best fit their desired categories and goals.

After the user receives their results, they’re able to immediately invest in their chosen ETF, or if they’re interested in something else, they can search using different parameters.

Why Threadvest?

Threadvest doesn’t charge for their ETF Miner, users only need to pay the brokerage fee from their chosen broker. Additionally, unlike the simple market scanners than many advisors and major brokerage platforms use, our proprietary ETF Miner technology is developed to work with big data sets and through a simple interface to deliver institutional quality data and optimal investment options to users. Furthermore, transactions occur over the secure API connection to the brokerage firms, ensuring that your data will not be exposed.

Get Started With Threadvest

To begin using Threadvest’s ETF Miner, simply head to their website and begin the short, 3 step process of selecting your ETFs!

Start Investing!

With 2018 wrapping up in a rather ominous manner, I thought it would be an interesting experiment to use only Intrinio data to try and decipher which dividend growth stocks might perform the best in 2019.

For this exercise, I will ONLY look at Intrinio data and their built-in financial ratios and formulas to evaluate a rather large list of stocks (roughly 115 individual companies) I currently hold in my dividend portfolio.

Below are the top 7 companies that rate well.  As I have no certainty if this is the start of a bear market (with some sectors & companies down 20%) or just a steep correction, I have attempted to assemble a list of high-quality, dividend growth stocks with stable earnings, increasing dividends, manageable debt and plenty of cash flow to cover those (hopefully) rising dividends - even during difficult times.

But first, a necessary disclosure.  I am not a financial advisor and my favorite stocks for 2019 should not be interpreted as financial advice.  Please do your own research before making any investment decisions for your own portfolio.

I have shared a static version of this google spreadsheet here, as I’m not able to share a spreadsheet that includes Intrinio calls with my personal credentials.  However, all data is pulled from Intrinio and one can easily assemble this spreadsheet after creating their free account.

So, let's get straight to it.  Here are the 7 stocks that I believe will fare well in 2019, and I’ll talk about the ratios and formulas that I used to determine these names below.

Using Intrinio data, here are my top dividend stocks for 2019.

Financial Data Used

While there are more financial acronyms and ratios than there are stars in the sky, here are the ones I used that lead me to believe these companies will fare well in 2019.  It’s extremely difficult to be a profit in the land of the profits, so take my picks with a grain of salt as I am no prophet.  Fortunately, Intrinio provides constantly updated data that is key at any time, but especially during extreme market volatility.  Use it!

ROIC (Return on Invested Capital) is a fantastic ratio that tells you how much profit a company can produce for every buck invested.  Obviously, we are looking to invest in companies that can produce large amounts of cash on their invested cash.

FCFY (Free Cash Flow Yield) gives us a P/E type look at a company, but with a better detail of company performance.  One method, used here, to calculate FCFY is by dividing FCF by enterprising value.

Net Debt to EBITDA Ratio (Earnings Before Interest Appreciation and Amortization) tells us, roughly, how many years it would take a company to pay off its debt if debt and EBITDA remained stagnant.  This is calculated by dividing net debt by EBITDA.

Dividend Payout Ratio allows us to easily decipher how much of a company's earnings are used to pay to shareholders.  This is calculated by annual dividends per share divided by earnings per share.

My Favorite Dividend Growth Stock for 2019

If I were to only pick one stock that I believe is set to outperform in 2019, it would have to be $DIS. 2019, without a doubt, will be a big year for the mouse.  With huge updates to the theme parks that will bring record numbers, a full line up of blockbuster movies and their streaming service, Disney+ going live, 2019 should shape up to be a magical year for Disney.

Also, I realize both $MA and $V, competitors in the financial services industry, are listed. Both look great and will continue to do well, even during turbulent times.

Happy New Year?

If we do find ourselves in a bear market in 2019, all bets are off.  Fundamentals are important, but not as important market sentiment.  One thing I have learned with the market over the years is many macroeconomic factors don’t matter until they do.  And when they do, that ripping off of the bandaid hurts… badly.

One last disclaimer.  Before a MD recommends a course of action, the doctor examines the patient (eg. symptoms, weight, age).  My opinions of valuations are centered around accumulating great dividend growth stocks where zero investment income is necessary.  Your financial status, investment income requirements, and diversification might be very different than mine.  Please seek counsel with your professional investment advisors before investing.

Happy New Year and good luck!

Our mission at Intrinio is to make financial data affordable and accessible so that developers can build something amazing. Thankfully for developers and data scientists, we're not the only ones that share this mission.

Two Sigma and Kaggle also believe in the power of accessible data. So, when the opportunity came along to provide financial data for a Two Sigma and Kaggle global data science competition, it was clear that we should participate.

Over the coming months, quality data and powerful tools will collide with a brilliant community, creating the perfect storm for innovation. This unique competition unleashes the power of the crowds to build intelligent predictions via innovative algorithms, encouraging collaboration among some of the brightest minds in data science.

The Competition

Two Sigma: Using News to Predict Stock Movements, is open to Kaggle's worldwide community of nearly 2 million data scientists and offers a total of $100,000 worth of prizes to the winners.

The Timeline

During the two-stage competition, participants will leverage the Kaggle platform to build a predictive algorithm, attempting to correlate movements in stock prices (financial data provided by Intrinio) with news analytics data (provided by Thomson Reuters).

The first stage, known as the submission period, runs from September 25, 2018 to January 8, 2019. At this time, entrants will train their models in Kaggle Kernels, and then select their two best algorithms to submit on January 8, 2019.

The second stage, known as the scoring period, runs from January 9, 2019 to July 15, 2019. At this time, entrants and spectators can sit back and watch the weekly leaderboard unfold.
