We have gotten a lot of positive feedback about the content on our site, but quite a few people expressed interest in seeing more data. A few months later, WikiData was born. We wanted the feature to contribute to the overall effort of providing community members with a cohesive narrative on the companies and industries in which they are interested in investing. This meant that we needed more meaningful data. Revenue and net income have an obvious place in the valuation of companies, but understanding the factors that influence these two omnipresent metrics can be invaluable to investors. For instance, showing that net income has fallen because the price that an airline pays per gallon of fuel has doubled over the last 3 years adds a whole new dimension of value. Providing a mechanism for comparing the fuel costs for multiple airlines adds an another facet by allowing the community to see how industry wide trends can affect individual companies within an industry in different ways. WikiData is still in its infancy, but it is growing rapidly and will eventually cover thousands of companies across more than 100 industries. Here’s a list of industries that have already been populated with WikiData.
