How do I evaluate an author using Premium features on a mobile device?
You can verify the quality of any author by going to their profile page and taking a look at the "Analysis" Tab.
On every article you read, you can find that article's performance since it was published - the author rating history is available at the top of the article, under “About this article". This gives a quick snapshot of the author's credibility around the stock
You can also look at the rating history of a stock (author ratings) on the stock symbol page, under the 'Ratings History' tab. There is a separate chart for how the stock's been rated by each author who has covered it.
Hovering over any dot on the chart will reveal the title of the article and the price change since the article was published.
Important: Whenever a Seeking Alpha author publishes an article, they need to state what their position is regarding the stock they are writing about. Instead of the author saying they are simply short or long, authors must now declare if it's a Strong Buy, Buy, Hold, Sell, or Strong Sell. We then aggregate every author’s rating within the past 30 days and combine it to create the overall 'Author Rating' for every stock.
