Pro automates a lot of the research that professional analysts provide but we don't have the same potential conflicts of interest. Our research and others have proven that equity analysts tend to be overly optimistic about stocks. Pro is for investors looking for a trusted independent source based on empirical data and testing.
Pro Ratings combine three elements to derive the overall rating for a stock. We assign "attractive", "neutral" and "avoid" based on the scores for the "relative value check", "fundamental check" and "fair value estimate".
