Haha, have to prefer Bloomberg or suddenly I'm not legit?
Edit: Realized I missed part of what you are saying. I work in M&A.
Bloomberg terminal is excellent at what it does, but it is very rigid and geared towards people in specific roles. Eikon 1-3 were pretty awful, but 4 is very stable and customizeable. For my personal investing you really can't beat being able to screen by thousands of metrics and totally customize your pages.
For instance I have a list of mREITs by different types and can see their discount to book in near real time. If one crazily falls out (as ORC did when it had a large premium then a large discount) I know to take a closer look.
I very rarely use my terminal for work.
Yea I've used solver and goal seek for some models but not to the extent that bankers probably do.
