MarketGrader assigns a Fundamental and a Sentiment rating to each one of the 6,000 stocks we follow, based on thousands of daily calculations.
Our Fundamental rating is sourced from each company's financial statements and its earnings estimates. 24 indicators are graded by our system across Growth, Value, Profitability and Cash Flow. They are all combined into a final overall grade that ranges between zero (0) and one hundred (100), on which our final Buy, Hold or Sell rating is based. This rating represents our perspective on the stock over the next 12-18 months.
Our Sentiment rating is based on two momentum indicators, our earnings guidance indicator, and our short interest indicator. All seek to measure the imbalances between supply and demand for the stock. These four indicators are combined into a final score that ranges between zero (0) and ten (10) which then determines our Positive, Neutral or Negative rating. This rating represents our perspective on the stock over the next 4 weeks.
