TransparentShare - The year 2020

The annual review 2020 - TransparentShare turns 2 years old

2020 was marked by one of the biggest market slumps in recent years: In March the DAX lost almost 40%. The losses were then made up in a rapid rally. The year was not only very turbulent, it also offered a lot of opportunities. 2020 was a very successful year for TransparentShare. We would like to thank all users for this!

We have continuously developed and implemented many customer requests such as stocks from the S&P 500 and Euro Stoxx 50 as well as news and charts in our application.

TransparentShare has been available to everyone for 2 years now. Since January 1st, 2019, our buy and sell recommendations have enabled a Yield of + 11.7% be achieved.

On April 1st, 2020 we have a new Wikifolio "German stocks - Transpa30" created. In this Wikifolio we show all buy and sell recommendations from DAX companies that are recommended by TransparentShare. Since April 2020 a return of + 41.9% has been achieved.

In 2020, the return on all German stocks was + 0.32% (excluding dividends and excluding fees). This enabled a return of +1.13% better than with a comparable DAX ETF. You can find details on the return calculation here.

New Customer opinion by Michael Gassmann.

“I am grateful that you developed this app. The whole approach is so customer-oriented and helps me make an objective decision. The model is fantastic.

I have been a premium user for 3 months and can say that the way stocks are valued is conclusively understandable and has also proven to be profitable so far. I became a big fan of the Levermann strategy concept. TransparentShare is an ingenious tool!

Handling is child's play, news on the respective stocks can be reached quickly and concisely and you always have an overview of buy and sell recommendations. This is exactly what helps beginners to gain a foothold in the stock market and makes it a smart daily companion in the world of stocks. And since today also with the first S&P 500 US shares!

TransparentShare takes the greed off by rationally justifying the stock recommendations. It brings peace of mind and takes away the emotional process of when to buy or sell.

Big compliments and thanks for this great service, dear TransparentShare team! "
