Since 2011, MarketBeat has made it our mission to give individual investors a way to level the playing field with institutional investors. We noticed there was a lack of high-quality stock research tools for investors of all levels. And even if there was, there was no place for investors to go as a one-stop resource to handle their research needs.
MarketBeat uses the latest technology to provide proprietary, comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-the-minute financial data. And because this information can be overwhelming, MarketBeat provides investors with the ability to input their stocks of interest (either those that are in their portfolio or on their watchlist) and delivers curated information that helps them get a jump start on news that affects their investment.
Currently, over 15 million individuals visit MarketBeat.com every month. If you’re not already one of those visitors (and even if you are), we’re giving you the following reasons to use MarketBeat.com.
Curated Tools for Every Investor
My MarketBeat – This is the core of the MarketBeat service. The premise behind My MarketBeat is that most investors are primarily interested in the equities in their portfolio or on their watch lists. By loading the stocks that they hold, investors will get information that is pertinent to stocks in their portfolio or watch list(s).
Create Unlimited Watchlists – MarketBeat Daily Premium subscribers can input an unlimited number of stocks on an unlimited number of watchlists. However, even those investors who only have the free Basic service can input up to five stocks on five separate watchlists.
Text/E-Mail Alerts – Subscribers receive text or email alerts for the stocks on their watchlist(s) or in their portfolio. This is an approach that allows investors to quickly get information on the stocks that are of the most interest to them.
Premium Market Analysis
Daily Newsletters - MarketBeat provides subscribers with the Early Bird that subscribers receive every morning before the market opens and the Night Owl which they receive every evening. These newsletters give readers insight on stocks that MarketBeat analysts are tracking as well as a curated selection of investment articles from other financial outlets. However, these newsletters do not directly make stock picks.
Exclusive Content from MarketBeat Analysts – The MarketBeat site refreshes every day with articles that deliver exclusive content from MarketBeat analysts.

Momentum Alerts - MarketBeat’s Momentum Alerts give investors short-term trading opportunities that our editors identify using a combination of trading momentum, market sentiment, and other specific financial triggers. These alerts have proposed trades that have appreciated 5-15% in as little as seven days. But past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
Top MarketRank™ Stocks – MarketBeat provides a list of the 100 companies that have the highest average MarketRank (i.e. Beat the Market) score from MarketBeat.
Trending Stocks – Social media has changed the way retail investors find information. Investors can get a list of stocks that are trending based on criteria like high media sentiment, if the stock is trending on Reddit and/or WallStreetBets as well as stocks that have drawn frequent media mentions.
Advanced Charts Provided by TradingView - TradingView is the world’s most popular network of traders and investors – powered by real-time data and market-leading analysis software.
Earnings Reports – MarketBeat gives investors a way to see an earnings calendar that can be sorted by different criteria including sector, market cap, media sentiment, and consensus analyst opinion. Additionally, the site provides audio and/or text transcripts of the earnings calls that these companies deliver.
Analyst Ratings – One of the key predictors of stock price performance is the opinion of analysts. When investors look at the profile page for a particular stock, they’ll get the consensus 12-month price target of all Wall Street analysts. They’ll also get a list of all ratings that have been delivered in the last
Stock Screener Tool – MarketBeat has a menu of stock screeners that give users the ability to compare stocks side by side.

In April 2021, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon described fintech companies as one of the “enormous competitive threats” to traditional banking. And with good reason. Fintech (short for financial technology) is not just “digital banking.” It’s a different approach to banking that traditional banks will not be able to replicate by outspending their competitors.
You see, cryptocurrency is getting a lot of attention for the way it’s disrupting the monetary system. But before there was bitcoin (CCC: BTC-USD), there was fintech.
What started out as a way to send money from one person to another without the need for a bank (i.e. peer-to-peer lending) has morphed into much more. Today, individuals and businesses can get loans, invest, and pay bills conveniently and securely. And they can do so without ever having to set foot into a bank.
Financial technology is democratizing finance for many individuals who have been left behind by the traditional banking system. The “unbanked” is a huge target audience. But whereas fintech started as reaching those that were unbanked out of necessity; it is cultivating a new audience among those who are going unbanked by choice.
In this special presentation, we’ll look at seven fintech companies that are leading in this space today and will do so well into the future.
