TipRanks co-founder and CEO Uri Gruenbaum, commented, “While we are not an analyst endorsement platform, we are always excited to see those that generate excess returns. When we launched TipRanks there was no accountability to those making financial recommendations, and investors could easily follow bad advice. I am delighted that investors can now easily follow those analysts who have consistently high success rates and average returns.”
