Report Scoring & Grades
First To Markets has developed a robust scoring mechanism to grade the accuracy of a analyst's report over time. The resulting measurement is a percentage score ranging from 0% to 100% for each individual report. You will find these scores represented next to reports on a given analyst's or stock's page. You will find the percentage displayed in many of the report tables on the site such as in the Report Archive or the average performance of a given analyst or all analyst across a specific stock on each respective page.
