This is a review of the Power Pack, which includes Ekonomys Portfolio and a host of other add-ons. I am new to site development but I have spent twenty years in financial services.

In a nutshell, this did not provide me the functionality or user-friendliness one would expect for such an expensive offering. It was under-documented and just seems as if it was not tested enough prior to release.

For example, the portfolio frequently dropped the first symbol's data, so the portfolio information was incomplete and the portfolio value was wrong. Symbols need to be entered in uppercase into a category (who knew??).

The tickers are also problematical. The tickers frequently fail to load the first time the page is opened. I also could not make three tickers work simultaneously.

When I bought this, I was not expecting to get a Bloomberg terminal. But I do expect it to work. The developer refused to refund money and requested that I continue to work with him on resolving the many bugs. I was willing to do that to a certain point, but that loses its appeal pretty quickly after one had paid for what should be a functional extension.

The developer seems like a decent person, so I hope many of the issues will be resolved and the extension does what it is expected to do.

This is a great solution if you want to offer stock picks or portfolio management suggestions in your investing or stock market website. The module is ideal also for showing the stock market picks of the gurus, such as Warren Buffet and others. All you have to do is enter the number of shares of each company and it will automatically calculate the real value of the stock portfolio in real time. It's perfect for portfolio managers and for stock analysts. It is also perfect for general information investing websites that can show what the gurus are doing. Highly recommended.
