Pellucid’s Market return contributions from multiples and earnings chart reduces the pain of gathering data for histograms. This chart shows the total shareholder return for a comps set, with the contributions broken down by either multiples or earnings.

Market return contribution decomposition across the market

This insightful analysis explains the drivers of market performance by deconstructing the trailing price returns of each company in a market index into standalone contributions from changes in reported earnings and changes in valuation multiples. It’s an impactful chart that, with Pellucid, doesn’t require hours of data wrangling.

Metric vs. comps index with intensity bars

In this chart, a metric is plotted against an index of comps in two ways: the line chart at the top shows divergence between the subject company and its peers; while the value intensity bars (a tough thing to create in Excel) shows each individual comp and its relative performance for the given metric.
