Motley Fool has developed the CAPS Rating, which is the aggregation of every prediction for a particular stock. In the Motley Fool website, traders and investors can rate US stocks (more than 4,400 stocks) by selecting whether a stock will outperform or underperform the S&P 500 for a specific time frame; these predictions are aggregated, a score for every stock is calculated, stocks are ranked against one another and finally an average score (CAPS Rating) is published. Not all predictions are equal (have the same weight); in fact, users with higher ratings, the ones that have higher accuracy prediction rate, have more influence on a stock rating.
The goal of CAPS Ratings is to improve traders' investing results by helping them identify which stocks to buy and which ones to avoid.
The latest US Stocks CAPS Rating are downloaded by this object. It stores the data in a field called "rate" inside a database named "CAPS".
CAPS Ratings values vary between 0 and 5. A stock with a value of 5 is among the highest-rated stocks and this mean that the majority of Motley Fool members think that the stock will outperform the market (S&P 500) in the near future, while a value of 1 indicates that the majority of the members think that the stock will underperform the market.
As I said earlier, this item downloads the last CAPS Ratings for more than 4,400 US Stocks. To download the complete historical data use the Historical Data of CAPS Ratings object. It will create an historical end-of-day database of CAPS Ratings.
