How do you know you are performing reliable research when there is so much information available about which stocks to invest in?
Investors can mistakenly believe that positive coverage from a trusted source is enough to drive an investment decision. However, dig deeper and you may find contradictory signals.
For example, what do you do if a stock’s technical indicators look good, yet hedge funds are dumping it? Or if a CEO is buying a lot of stock in their company, while leading Wall Street analysts remain bearish?
The TipRanks Stock Analysis tab presents the ‘Smart Score’ of a stock. Smart Score is a proprietary rating system developed by TipRanks that incorporates 8 market factors to score stocks on a scale of 1-10.
Its simplicity makes it easy to use, while giving you an in-depth analysis of a stock. Here’s how it works.
Smart Score Stock Analysis
The Stock Analysis tab immediately shows you the Smart Score of the stock you are researching. 10 is the highest score, and 1 is the lowest. The score is categorized into three main groups:
Outperform – stocks with a score of 8, 9, or 10
Neutral – stocks with a score of 4, 5, 6, or 7
Underperform – stocks with a score of 1, 2, or 3
