TipRanks has released an exciting new notifications feature to the top panel- which looks something like this:
This new feature enables you to stay on track of all the latest activity on your stocks more easily and more effectively. Now you can always see the accountable opinion of financial experts on your stock picks before making big investing decisions.
Our new dropdown list of notifications instantly reveals updates on stock and expert activity in real time. The result: you can be confident that you won’t miss any crucial stock notifications or expert activity.
The notifications are personalized for the experts and stocks that you have chosen to ‘follow’ by clicking the follow button included on every stock/ expert page.
How does it work?
First of all find the new bell sign included on the top panel next to the Research Tools menu. Straight away we can see from the red circle that there are 5 new stock or expert notifications to read.
Roll your cursor over the bell to see a dropdown list of all the latest activity on all the stocks and experts you follow.
The notifications cover four essential updates:
1. Activity on Your Stocks
If you follow a stock you will be notified of any activity on that stock by financial experts. This means all new analyst ratings, blogger ratings, corporate insider transactions and hedge fund portfolio adjustments. You will also receive a notification when that stock publishes its next earnings date.
For example, I follow Valeant Pharma (VRX) so if you check out the notifications below, you can see that Jefferies analyst David Steinberg has just reiterated his VRX buy rating. Note that you can click on the stock name to go to the TipRanks’ stock profile page for deeper analysis.
2. Financial Expert Activity
If you follow an analyst: you will receive a notification any time that analyst publishes a new rating. Follow top-rated analysts with a four or even five-star rating to generate the highest returns on your investments. For example, Jefferies analyst Ken Usdin listed above has a very impressive success rate of 81% and average return of 19.2% across his 292 stock ratings.
The same holds true of any of the financial experts covered by TipRanks. For example, if you follow a corporate insider you will be notified any time that insider buys or sells shares in their company. All financial experts have a star rating so you can see at a glance if it is a top expert that you can trust.
3. Stock Price Alerts
Excitingly, you will also now receive an alert if any of the stocks you follow are trading up or down by 5% plus. This useful alert enables you to make quick adjustments to your portfolio based on real-time updates. This way you do not need to keep an eye on each of your stocks individually but can be instantly alerted on big price movements.
4. Your Selections
The notifications also give you a clear update of your selected stocks and experts. If you press the follow button on any of TipRanks 5,000 plus stocks or financial experts you will receive a notification like the examples below so you can easily monitor your own activity:
Brand New Tab Display
And the coolest part is that you can see you have alerts even when you are browsing on another website. The TipRanks tab has now been updated to include the number of notifications you have to check out. See below how I can immediately tell that I have 9 updates on my followed picks. Click ‘Mark all as read’ in the dropdown box to clear all the notifications in one go.
We have also made some neat updates to the rest of the TipRanks site. For example, every time you add a stock to your portfolio, or an expert to your expert selection a blue notification will pop up confirming your decision and providing a link to the relevant portfolio page.
