The STARS rating is a measure of the degree to which S&P recommends the purchase of a stock.  A high rating indicates that S&P believes it is worthwhile to buy that stock.  A low rating indicates that the stock should be sold.

To find the STARS rating, search for your company's record in Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage

  • Then in the menu on the left-hand side of the page, click on "PDF" under "Stock Reports." 
  • At the top of the PDF that appears, you will find the number of stars S&P gives the stock.
