Three Idea-Generating Tools that Will Take You Through 2024

Whether you are new to the game or a veteran investor, TipRanks will power up your investment research. With a multitude of tools, TipRanks points you to new stock ideas with the potential to skyrocket.

Three of our most powerful tools are poised to take you through to the end of 2024 with a winning portfolio. Read on to learn about these tools: Top Smart Score Stocks, Top Penny Stocks to Watch, and Analyst Top Stocks.

Top Smart Score Stocks

One of the biggest challenges that individual investors face is performing reliable research. Investors can mistakenly believe that one positive article on a finance website is enough to determine whether to make an investment.

It can also be difficult to know what to do when faced with contradictory signals. For example, what do you do if a stock’s technical indicators look good, yet hedge funds are dumping it? Or if a CEO is buying a lot of stock in their own company, but analysts with a strong track record are bearish?

The TipRanks Smart Score solves this problem by providing a data-driven stock score that is easy to understand. The tool uses eight key parameters, including the ratings of the Top-performing analysts as well as technical and fundamental factors to analyze stocks. The system assigns a Smart Score between 1 and 10, with 10 being the best score. Importantly, stocks with a “Perfect 10” Smart Score have historically outperformed the S&P 500 Index (SPX) by a wide margin. This makes these stocks potentially lucrative investment choices.

To further boost your stock research prowess, TipRanks has developed a unique methodology to rank stocks based on their Smart Scores. The Top Smart Score Stocks tool enables investors to find stocks with the highest Smart Score.

To find the Top Smart Score Stocks tool, navigate to “Ideas” in the top menu, and then click on “Top Smart Score Stocks” in the drop-down menu.
