Financial ratios do not impart much information on their own unless they are compared against the ratios of similar stocks. Every day we run millions of calculations to determine the pertinent ratios for each stock, and then we rank the stock against the stocks in the same exchange and sector for each ratio and assign a grade based on the percentile ranking based on the table below. Stock Target Advisor’s users can quickly determine where their favourite stocks stand by looking at their grades for key ratios.
