At StateoftheMarkets.com, we focus our attention on the top-rated stocks of the market for a few simple reasons. The top stocks have the best earnings strength. The top stocks have strong fundamentals. The top stocks are also in the top-ranked industry groups. So from our perspective, the top stocks put the odds in your favor before you ever enter a buy order. So, why would anyone invest/trade in anything else?

The StateoftheMarkets "Top Stock" Rating

The TopStock Rating indicates the combined score of our proprietary Earning Strength and Company Performance models. The rating scale is 0 - 10 with 10 being the highest.

Current Rating
The Current Rating is designed to let readers know what we would do now if we did NOT currently hold the position.

Strong Buy: Our favorite position. We would be willing to buy a full position at current levels.

Buy: We would be willing to buy at current levels.

Accumulate: We would be willing to take a "starter position" (25% - 33% of the full position) at current levels. However, we would not want to buy a full position at the current time and we would look to add to our "starter position" on weakness.

Hold: We prefer to hold our position at the current levels, but we would not be buyers at this time.

Sell: We are not happy with this position and are looking for an exit point.
