Brokerage Ratings Breakdown uses a combination of two metrics to calculate brokerage star rankings, including the average twelve-month ROI of "buy" and "strong buy" recommendations and the accuracy of each brokerage's price target predictions. Brokerages that issue ratings with higher average ROIs and more accurate price targets will receive higher star ratings than their peers with lower-average ROIs and less accurate price targets. Brokerage can earn ratings anywhere from 1 star to 5 stars. Brokerages that have issued fewer than ten tracked research reports during the most recent reporting year will not be ranked.
