Morningstar stock analysts tap their extensive industry knowledge while they evaluate companies using a proprietary methodology built on fundamental analysis. Stock analyst reports available through the Analyst Research Center quickly identify a stock’s worth, then back it up with pages of analyst commentary, ratings, and data. Regularly updated video commentaries offer objective third-party perspectives on companies, industries, and market trends. A stock screener identifies investments with solid 10-year records, bargain stocks, and more. As seen in our market-beating Tortoise and Hare portfolios, stocks rated highly by Morningstar analysts have consistently outperformed the broader market over the long term.

Our analysts pay particular attention to the circumstances surrounding a new offering, why a company is going public, and who’s selling.
