Earlier this week, we announced our new custom development services for Intrinio users who need a platform to harness the power of our financial data. To give you a better understanding of what we can do, we’re launching a three-part series to dive into potential use cases – inspired by real projects we’re working on right now.
Without further ado…
Business Challenge #1: Getting clean, reliable financial data.
Business Challenge #2: Building a platform to harness the power of that data.
We’ve been helping individuals, startups, and enterprises tackle the first challenge for years. And now we can help with the second, too.
If you’ve ever shopped at Costco, you know that some things are just better in bulk.
We serve tons of developers, analysts, and investors who were looking for massive amounts of historical data to backtest their theories and train machine learning algorithms, among other uses.

Time is limited. How much of yours is spent acquiring, processing, and cleaning data?
The answer is probably “too much.” When the success of your projects (and by extension, your job) is dependent on a foundation of reliable, high-quality data, it’s important to get it right.

If you’re between the ages of 15-30 years old, you’ve most likely used Snapchat in your life. For a lot of people, it’s their preferred social media app. You’re able to keep up with your friends with the “stories” feature and send photos to them. The demographic for Snapchat is young, and this is a reason why it’s lost some growth in the past few years. Yet, its stock has finally started to rise. When Snapchat went public in March of 2017, its opening price was at $17 per share. About a year and a half later on December 21st, it fell to $5 per share. This was a dramatic decline for the company.
Things have been looking better for Snapchat since the stock dropped in December. Right now, the company is trading around $15. This is a phenomenal bounce-back for Snapchat and shows investors that the company is in a much better spot than it was a year ago. Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry raised his rating for Snap to Buy from neutral, signifying a new sense of confidence in the company. However, there are reasons to pause on investing. Instagram has copied many of Snapchat’s features and made them better. The app has far more users than Snapchat and could eventually kill it. With all this said, What does the Future of Snapchat look like?
Tesla is a company that has a chance to not only change the automotive industry, but to change the way we commute altogether. Founded in 2003, the company has been able to compete with giants like Ford and Chevy and pave its own path in an increasingly dense market. Everyone knows the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk. His ventures go further than just Tesla, with Musk’s other companies being SpaceX and the Boring Company to name a few. He isn’t 100% committed to Tesla, and this is one of the problems that investors see. They have a hard time justifying Tesla’s current price of around $245 per share (steadily increasing).
Meanwhile, Tesla is coming off of a phenomenal Q2 where they saw delivery grow substantially. In Q2, Tesla was able to deliver 95,200 vehicles. This is higher than analysts predicted, and a great sign for its ability to get its cars out to their owners. With all this said, will Tesla’s stock continue to rise, or will issues cause the company to have setbacks? With all these questions and more, we ask one more important question: What does the future of Tesla look like?
