  • Fundamental: Compares a company to its industry on a number of commonly used profitability, debt, and dividend measures.
  • Risk/Price Analysis: Provides unique measures of long and short-term stock price momentum, as well as historic seasonality performance (i.e., whether a stock tends to perform well during a given month).

  • Insider: Historical insider buys and sells are aggregated by quarter allowing for easy analysis of longer term trends.

The Verus Analytics Opinion is an empirically-derived and historically back-tested stock rating system with buy, sell and hold opinions. To develop a rating, the quantitative system analyzes a firm's earnings quality, balance sheet, and income statement, conducts technical and valuation analysis, and evaluates the transactions made by the company's management and company insiders.
