Why are Analyst Ratings Important?
A company's financial statements are a significant factor weighted by experts when analyzing a company's health. Beyond just the numbers, analysts follow specific industries closely and are able to gain a detailed understanding of how a storm in one part of the world can shutdown supply chains leading to a change in consumption across the globe. This knowledge allows investors to respond to potential changes in the market before they are revealed in a quarterly annoucement.
Investors Observer averages the ratings across all these analysts and percentile ranks those averages. This allows you to compare stocks in greater detail than the usual five-tiered system used amongst the majority of investors.
