Real Questions from Real Subscribers

Q: The Quadrix Overall and Reranked Overall numbers are usually pretty close, but sometimes they are quite different.  When I see a big difference, which number should I use to rank a stock?

A: Dear Subscriber,

Thank you for your question. The Reranked Overall number refers to a score comparing that stock to others in its peer group. The Overall score focuses on a stock’s fundamental appeal versus the entire Quadrix universe of nearly 5,000 stocks.

A good approach is to focus on companies that score well Overall, and also look good relative to their peer group, as demonstrated by solid Reranked Overall and 12-Factor Sector scores. We believe the Overall score is ultimately the most important rank, but again, we like to see strong scores in both Overall and Reranked Overall.

Thanks for your interest,

Bob Sweet, CFA
