Screen for stocks or REITs with the best ratings and factor grades. The Seeking Alpha stock screener is different from standard screeners. Instead of requiring you to input specific metrics, it uses Seeking Alpha's ratings and factor grades to help you find investments. You can screen for stocks most highly rated by Seeking Alpha authors or sell-side (“Wall Street”) analysts, or by our Quant ratings. Screening with factor grades is particularly powerful. For example, you can find stocks with an A+ for Value, and limit your screen to stocks whose dividend yield is above a certain amount, or that are in a sector or industry of your choice. See the Ratings Screener.

Lists of top stocks. Using our screener, we've created preset screens to generate these lists of top ranked stocks: Top Rated StocksTop Rated Dividend StocksTop Yield MonstersTop Tech StocksTop Growth StocksTop Value Stocks, and Top Small Cap Stocks.

Upgrades and downgrades. Find stocks and REITs which have just been upgraded to Bullish or Very Bullish in their quant rating, SA author rating, or Sell-Side rating on the Upgrades / Downgrades page.

Find similar stocks to those you already own. If you know you love a particular stock, we can help you find stocks similar to it. Related Stocks shows you stocks similar to a stock of your choice, using the wisdom of other Seeking Alpha users and authors. We show you stocks owned by Seeking Alpha users who also own the stock in question, and stocks mentioned in articles with that stock. You can customize the view to see the factors you care most about, such as growth or dividend metrics. This is a great way to discover new stocks similar to those you already own. Example -- Related Stocks to UNH.

Authors' favorite stocks. Once you’ve found a Seeking Alpha author you like, the "Coverage" tab on the author page enables you to see what stocks that author covers, with their ratings on each stock. This allows you to quickly find the stocks they rate as Bullish or Very Bullish. Example -- Cornerstone Investments' ratings of cannabis stocks.


Unlimited access to articles. Seeking Alpha has broader coverage of stocks than any other research provider. We cover thousands of stocks that have no coverage from Wall Street analysts. Premium provides access to any article you want to read. Example -- read any article on the AMTD symbol page.

Unlimited access to transcripts, including audio. Access earnings call and event transcripts for any stock. Listen to the audio of any transcript. Example -- Boeing's transcripts.

Ratings for each stock and REIT. Stock symbol pages in both desktop and mobile show three ratings for every stock -- the Quant Rating, SA Authors Rating, and Sell Side Rating. The Quant Rating rates the stock based on available data, and is optimized to best predict future stock price movements. The SA Authors Rating is the average rating of all the Seeking Alpha authors who cover the stock. The Sell Side Rating is the average rating of the Wall Street analysts who cover the stock. Example -- MCD symbol page.

Factor scorecard for each stock and REIT. Our Factor Grades enable you to evaluate any stock in seconds, and decide if it's relevant for you. Stock symbol pages in both desktop and mobile include a Factor Grades scorecard showing the stock or REIT's grades, from A+ to F, for five "factors" -- Value, Growth, Profitability, Momentum and EPS Revisions. This enables you to evaluate any stock in seconds, and to ascertain whether the stock or REIT matches your investing style. The grades for REITs are built on data specifically appropriate for REITs, such as FFO and AFFO. Example -- MPW symbol page.

NEW! Read all the news on a stock in one page. The News tab on symbol pages enables you to view all the news in headline-only mode or by showing the entire stories. You can also filter by news type, such as Dividend News, Earnings News and M&A News. Example -- FB news page.

NEW! Bulls Say and Bears Say. How do you quickly identify the key positives and key negatives of a stock's prospects? Bulls Say and Bears Say is a card on our symbol page which gives you a quick summary of why people are bullish on the stock, and why people are bearish on the stock. Example -- FB symbol page.

NEW! See how the stock is quant-ranked versus other stocks. Symbol pages show the quant ranking of the stock versus others in its industry and sector, and versus all other stocks. Click on the ranking to go to the screener to see the top ranked stocks. Example -- FB symbol page.

Compare stocks and funds. Compare six stocks or funds side by side, including their key data, ratings, and factor grades. Comparisons of stocks include the three ratings (Quant Rating, SA Authors Rating and Sell Side Rating) and the factor scorecard for each stock. If you compare ETFs, the data is customized for ETFs, including their expense ratios, liquidity, and performance. You can easily change the stocks or ETFs in your comparison, download the results as a spreadsheet or PDF, and save the comparison. The user interface is beautifully clean and easy to use. See Compare stocks and funds.

10 years of financials for every stock. Clear and powerful presentation of companies' income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements. Flip easily between views to see growth rates, margins, and view mouse-over charts. Example -- MMM income statement with year over year growth, over 10 years.

Author's track record on the stock being written about. When you read an article about a stock, you can see a chart of the author's history on that stock below the article. Example -- FB article (scroll to bottom of article to see chart).


Stock ratings on your portfolio. Our new portfolio view for subscribers shows ratings next to each of your stocks. You can quickly see how each of your stocks is rated by Seeking Alpha authors, by sell-side analysts, and by the objective data powering our Quant Ratings. You can view ratings on your portfolio from your mobile phone by turning your phone to landscape mode and scrolling sideways. Go to your portfolio »
