Finchart gives you the opportunity to use both built-in indicators of companies, and make up your own.

Take, for example, the EV / EBITDA.

You can enter the ticker directly "AAPL_EVEBITDA_MRT" and as you type, auto search will prompt you: "AAPL" -> "AAPL_EV" -> "AAPL_EVEBITDA -> " AAPL_EVEBITDA_MRT. "Or try searching for the name" apple ente " -> " apple enterprise " -> "apple enterprise ebit ".

Now try to calculate the indicator yourself. To do this, select the tickers of the required metrics and compose a formula from them.

For this we need:

AAPL_DEBTC_MRQ - Debt Current (Quarterly)? AAPL_DEBTNC_MRQ - Debt Non-Current (Quarterly)

AAPL - Daily stock price

AAPL_SHARESWADIL_MRQ - Weighted Average Shares Diluted (Quarterly)

AAPL_EBITDA_MRT - Earnings Before Interest, Taxes & Depreciation Amortization (EBITDA) (Quarterly)

Using these metrics, we calculate the Enterprise value of the company: AAPL_DEBTC_MRQ + AAPL_DEBTNC_MRQ + AAPL * AAPL_SHARESWADIL_MRQ

and then simply divide by EBITDA:

(AAPL_DEBTC_MRQ + AAPL_DEBTNC_MRQ + AAPL * AAPL_SHARESWADIL_MRQ) / AAPL_EBITDA_MRT?

Here is an example.

As you can see, the obtained data slightly does not converge with the built-in metric, because it trailing twelve months, and in the formula we have quarterly values for specific articles.

In our calculation, we used the daily value of the stock, so the calculated formula was obtained with daily frequency.
