How to Use Green Zone Ratings to Look up Stocks

Original post

Adam O’Dell’s Green Zone Ratings system is now live on Money & Markets, but we know from your emails that you want more detail.

You want to be sure that you’re making the most of it.

Before I explain how to access the ratings, I’ll share a brief overview of the  system.

Adam began crafting Green Zone Ratings long before joining our team as Chief Investment Strategist. He spent years perfecting his algorithms, which you can use to analyze more than 8,000 stocks.

And all that hard work has created stock analysis that is easy to understand.

The system does all the math for us, but Green Zone Ratings boil down to six essential factors:

  1. Momentum
  2. Size
  3. Volatility
  4. Value
  5. Quality
  6. Growth

If you want to learn more about each of these factors, check out my recent interview with Adam, here.

Now let’s get into how you can find out your favorite stocks’ Green Zone Ratings today.

And just like that, you can see more than 8,000 stocks’ Green Zone Ratings!

  • Bullish (61-80)
  • Neutral (41-60)
  • Bearish (21-40)
  • High-Risk (0-20)

We’ve also included an “action to take” with each stock depending on where it lands on the spectrum. To learn more about these rankings and what each action means, check out the table below:
