What’s in a POWR Rating?

A stock’s overall POWR Rating is comprised of four distinct components:

  • Trade Grade – This metric includes technical indicators like proximity to various moving averages, recent price performance, analyst sentiment, bullish and bearish news flow, and more. Simply put, a Trade Grade represents the short-term bullish or bearishness of a stock.
  • Buy & Hold Grade – This metric looks at a stock’s proximity to its 52-week high, among other factors. The Buy & Hold Grade measures the long-term bullish or bearishness of a stock.
  • Peer Grade – This metric compares a security’s performance versus other stocks in its category.
  • Category Grade – This metric compares the performance of the security’s category versus all other categories.

POWR Ratings are the new standard


The past is over

Most stock ratings represent the opinion of a single analyst. Wall Street is rife with corruption and conflicts of interest, however, so analyst ratings have never been of much use to investors. How valuable is a single person’s opinion about a stock, anyway?

The future is now

POWR Ratings, on the other hand, are fully automated and are calculated on a daily basis using our proprietary algorithm. Our unique blend of pricing and technical data, news flow, relative performance, and categorization provides a much more useful look at how worthy a stock is of your investment dollars.
