About analyst ratings

Analysts work in banking and financial systems and typically specialize in reporting on stocks or defined sectors. Analysts can attend company conference calls and meetings, research company financials, and communicate with insiders to issue “analyst notes” for stocks. Analysts typically rate each stock once a quarter.

Some analysts will also offer forecasts for metrics such as growth estimates, earnings, and revenue to provide additional stock insights. Investors using analyst ratings should note that this expert advice is human-sourced and may be subject to error.
