Frequently Asked Questions

Where did all the JSE information go?

For JSE information, go to www.sharedata.co.za. If you want to know what happened to the old-format JSE section at www.profile.co.za, read on…

In January 2006 Profile Media merged its two equity titles, Profile's Results & Earnings and the Stock Exchange Handbook. At the same time it was decided to merge the ResultsData website with the equity section of the old www.profile.co.za. The resultant ShareData Online website has all the detail of the old profile.co.za site with the modern, more intuitive interface of the old ResultsData website.

Visit www.sharedata.co.za for listed company factsheets, online charting, JSE prices, email alert services, and a selection of useful investor tools.

Where did all the unit trust information go?

Profile's unit trust data can be found at www.fundsdata.co.za.

Where can I buy copies of Profile Media's publications?

Profile's Stock Exchange Handbook and Profile's Unit Trusts and Collective Investments are both available from leading book stores, including major CNAs and Exclusive Books. Availability depends on the publication cycle of each book and store policies. The Stock Exchange Handbook, for example, may not be available from CNA from mid-April to mid-May, when we are between issues, because CNA only keep publications on the shelf for three months.

All Profile Media's publications can be purchased directly from ourselves, either via mail order or for collection at our offices. Click here to order books online.

Is the Stock Exchange Handbook information available in electronic format?

Yes, the Stock Exchange Handbook is database driven, and the underlying database (ShareData™) is updated daily. It is available online at www.sharedata.co.za .
