Ned Davis Research Group (NDRG) is one of the largest independent providers of investment research, and is widely recognized for its concise commentary and unbiased views that offer investors insight into the forces driving the markets. NDRG is also well known for research that incorporates historical perspectives and fuses various analytical techniques.

NDRG produces a diverse range of technical and macroeconomic analysis to provide a well-rounded perspective on the markets.

NDRG's stock research combines fundamental and technical factors to provide a quantitatively-based stock ranking system.


    Each week, NDRG sorts their U.S. multi-cap universe (refer to "Stock Coverage" section below) by fundamental and technical metrics. After combining the fundamental and technical components, NDRG ranks all the covered stocks from 0 (worst) to 100 (best). Stocks with a rank greater than 90 receive a Buy rating while stocks with a rank of less than 10 receive a Sell rating. All other stocks get a Neutral rating.


    The underlying factors consist of half Fundamentals and half Technicals. The Fundamental Component is made up of half Valuation and half Profitability factors. The Technical Component is a momentum-based quantitative ranking system, used by NDRG since 1998, which captures primary leadership trends by focusing on a stock's sector and sub-industry. Since momentum-based systems tend to suffer large losses around market turning points, NDRG's model inverts the momentum component when the market calls for it.


    Company research covers:

    • Approximately 1,400 stocks
    • Companies with one or more stocks on the NYSE, NASDAQ and AMEX stock exchanges
    • Companies incorporated in the United States or its territories (ADRs and GDRs are ineligible).
    • Companies with top 99% of market capitalization and top 95% of liquidity based on NDR's dollar volume factor.
