    That's a reasonable difference, in term of earning yield it's -0.0018 vs 0.0039, It could be attributable to some measurement error (the time the data was taken), Is it the result of code you wrote that you can share with me?

    Maybe openbbterminal could provide this functionality , but currently linux install is a hassle so i haven't tried it.

    I still think there should be a large organisation (Think KDE/GNOME/boost) which could do some vetting (You could even pay them to do that). It is not a bullet proof solution (If such a thing exists for security), but it's a good risk management strategy interm of cost-risk-reward.

  3. Some companies like vanguard and blackrock/ishares exclude losing companies from price to earning ratio calculations, where can I find reliable pe numbers?

    For example Vanguard Russell 2000 Growth ETF shows a pe ratio of 19.5 on it's portfolio page, but etf.com (which reportedly calculates PE ratio in the "logical" method we probably all think of)...

    For example Vanguard Russell 2000 Growth ETF shows a pe ratio of 19.5 on it's portfolio page, but etf.com (which reportedly calculates PE ratio in the "logical" method we probably all think of) says it's 236.89.

    There is also the russel 2000 etf, which shows 14.3 on vanguard and 43.63 on etf.com (I saw no clear indication on the vanguard website they are removing losing companies), ishares does say that for it's etf.

    I want to know the PE ratio because economic bubbles (like the dot comm bubble and japan stock market bubble) were characterized by very high pe ratio, and there is historical evidence low pe performs better (probably because of the optimism bias).

    I can use etf.com, but would like another source to validate etf.com is reporting correctly .

    If we are mentioning games, there is also open realms of stars, but i looks like it's still in beta and not as high quality as the other alternatives.

    There is also data showing it's growing, both by the number of instances and the number of active users (although for now it seems like modest growth).

    There’s a sense that Lemmy is growing and I really hope it attracts more good folks.

    I use it and i like, the design is more traditional and similar to reddit, my impression is that tildes tends to be more general purpose in the themes of discussions, while lemmy like reddit has specific communities so if you want to discuss some specific topic and get a lot of content about it and there is a decent community there lemmy is the better choice i think , e.g. if you want to read about open source it's a better place to be in.

    but as mentioned there isn't really mechanism that encourages more high quality discussions (like the exemplary tag), notifications about new comments isn't that good so going in depth on a certain topic can be very hard.
