How to assess any stock using Premium features on symbol summary pages?

It gives you a snapshot of all three Seeking Alpha ratings for every stock - Quant, SA Authors, and Sell-Side Analyst. 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.
Seeking Alpha vs. Wall Street
Seeking Alpha authors must declare if they are Bearish, Neutral, or Bullish when publishing their articles. Easily compare SA author ratings to sell-side Wall Street analyst sentiment.
