Morningstar Rates Stocks

Reported by InvestmentWires Staff, 

Following on the success of their fund rating service, Morningstar is introducing stock ratings for 500 stocks on the premium section of its site, Morningstar.com. Morningstar will use its famous 5 star system to rate stocks based on a stock's market price as compared to its fair value (as computed using a discounted cash flow model developed by The Applied Finance Group) and will include a risk measure (high, medium, low) based on company and industry factors.
