Stock rating is an analysis of a stock’s expected performance and/or its risk level as judged by a rating agency such as Standard and Poor’s. A stock rating will generally tell the investor how well a stock’s market value relates to what analysts believe is a fair value for the stock, based on an objective evaluation of the company. The greater the amount by which the fair value goes beyond the market value, the more highly recommended a buy the stock is. On the other hand, if the market value of the stock exceeds the fair value of the stock, then analysts recommend that the stock be sold.
Most stock rating systems assign stocks one to five stars, with five being best. While some investors use a particular analyst’s stock ratings as guidance, it is important to consider the criteria which they use to determine fair value, since the techniques they use are varied and not all analysts are equally competent. After a recent check, 1 analyst has rated the stock with a sell rating, 3 have assigned a hold rating, 0 says it’s a buy, and 1 have assigned an Outperform rating to the company, according to Reuters.
