For the Everyday Investor
Mar 24, 2003, 12:00 AM
Adding to its suite of portfolio management and analytical tools, USATODAY.com has developed a new way to gauge investment risk. The "USA TODAY Stock Meter" offers the individual investor the ability to see an unbiased stock rating in an easy-to- understand format. The USATODAY Stock Meter uses a proprietary formula developed by USA TODAY financial editors and reporters. The formula calculates a stock rating between 1 and 5 that will correspond to investment type (conservative through aggressive). Through a product development partnership with MarketWatch.com, Inc., this rating will now be displayed in every stock quote in USATODAY.com's Money section. In addition the "USA TODAY Stock Meter" will be featured in the weekly Market Trends page, which appears on Mondays in USA TODAY's print edition.
