Worlds Largest Companies By Revenue 1995 to Present – Animated and Fascinating – Friday

When we posted our first animated chart of musicians, during the light week of Thanksgiving, we already had our eyes on some slightly heavier, economic related charts that are fascinating…

This chart is again organized by Revenues and near the end does a deep fall off animation of top 100 companies – very cool!

This from Animated Stats

Have a Great Animated Friday!

Break In – Our Platform/Vendor Merger = BIGGER and Better (Hello Schwab) … Fun Animated Chart – Best Selling Artist 1969 to Present

Break In

Earlier this week a formal announcement of our Vendor/Platform – TDAmeritrade being acquired by Charles Schwab – deal to close second half of 2020 if all goes well!

We expect no significant changes for any of us, and would add additional resources will be available to us after the merger – We have been asking for advanced Banking Services for some time… likely will be a result of the merger!

Can you hear new 1 Minute “How To” Videos in the works??

Should be fun as we always like new technologies and resources!

Now to our regularly schedule program….

These from our new friends at Data is Beautiful… we agree….

Of course there will be financial related animation to come soon…but not on Thanksgiving Week – especially after that heavy Monday Post!

Take a moment …

Its worth the watch….

Try to guess who comes up next!

Two Neat Charts, History of Interest Rates, and Debt, for a Lighter than Normal Pre-Thanksgiving Week

In a quest for postable animated charts (coming soon – these are REALLY fun) the following two charts grabbed attention on a Pre-Thanksgiving lighter week…. from our friends at Visual Capitalist.

Next week we will bring an animation chart to your inbox – again, they are really neat!

Interest Rates Since 1350

We crow frequently about Interest Rates, as they are very important.

Stepping back to see the forest for the trees…. this chart caught our eyes…

Location of Debt

From above, we see the long history of interest rates… below is the location

Pay particular attention to the color and the legend at the bottom of the chart as it is more important than the size of debt as focused on by the chart!

We just could not pass these up!

Have a Great “History of Rates and Location” Day!

Most Valuable Sports Franchises … First Day of School Blues …

With the changeover of sports season (Start of College/Pro Football) we thought it an interesting time to show you the estimated (Yes these are VERY estimated – but lets run with it) Sports Team Values …. once again from our friends at Howmuch.com

First Day of School Blues

Being so excited to hear the eleven year old was super excited to head to school…. our happy brows were raised as this was certainly the first time such happiness was around at this time … at least for seven years (entering 6th Grade) …

Return home was met with much more sorrow and pain than excitement during the morning departure … maybe expectations were too high… certainly first day of school blues…. only 179 more days ! Yikes….

Today is a Friday.. enjoy your weekend and have a fun near the end of summer weekend!

Talk to you next week!
