Ratings Summary

Appeals really strongly to retail investors who just want the bottom-line recommendation and brings tremendous value to advanced investors who are looking for a starting point for deeper analysis.

Quant Rating + Factor Grades

Quant Ratings are an objective, unemotional evaluation of each stock based on data, such as the company’s financial statements, the stock’s price performance, and analysts’ estimates of the company’s future revenue and earnings.

Over 100 metrics for each stock are compared to the same metrics for the other stocks in its sector, and overall.

Seeking Alpha grades each stock by five “factors” -- Value, Growth, Profitability, Momentum, and EPS Revisions. To do this, we compare the relevant metrics for the factor in question for the stock to the same metrics for the other stocks in its sector. The factor is then assigned a grade, from A+ to F.

Clicking on any of the Factor Grades (in blue) will bring up a drill-down of that grade's metrics.
