Standard and Poor's is the leading brand in financial information and analysis around the world. Brokers, investment bankers, and other Wall Street professionals have relied upon S&P's unparalleled financial analysis for over 140 years. Their stock reports and rating are among the most-respected in the industry. Constantly quoted in the business, financial, and popular media, S&P is a name you can trust. According to the New York Post, if a good night's sleep comes from feeling confident that your stock rating is accurate and not subject to a conflict of interest, "the folks at Standard & Poor's may be among the most well-rested analysts on Wall Street." The Standard & Poor's Guide to STAR Performing Stocks lists and reviews the stocks given top ratings by these very analysts. The book features only the cream of the crop: stocks given the prestigious 5-STAR "Buy" and 4-STAR "Accumulate" rankings through S&P's proprietary STock Appreciation Ranking System.
Since the inception of STARS, stocks deemed Strong Buy and Accumulate by S&P equity analysts since the inception of STARS significantly out-performed--on average--the S&P 500, while those stocks deemed Avoid and Sell significantly under-performed--on average--the S&P 500 index. The book features S&P's exclusive stock reports for nearly 400 top stocks, including - Ratings and recommendations - Summery of business activity - Recent developments and sales history - Earnings, dividends and 3-year price charts - Key income and balance sheet statistics...and more! The book also includes an introduction to the history and success of S&P's rankings, and a guide to reading and interpreting the stock reports for maximum success. We have done well with the Standard and Poor's 500, MidCap 400 and SmallCap 600 Guides. With this book, we extend a solid-gold brand, creating an authoritative, comprehensive guide any investor can use to identify the top-rated stocks.
