Investors Observer allows you to choose from eight unique metrics to view the top industries and the best performing stocks in that industry.

Not only are these scores easy to understand, but it is easy to compare stocks to each other. You can find the best stock in financial services or look for the sector that has the highest average score.
The overall score is a combination of technical and fundamental factors that serves as a good starting point when analyzing a stock.
