The Zacks Historical Brokerage Ratings Data Feed provides buy, sell, and hold recommendations from analysts at brokerages for all companies in the Zack's universe across any time period. Zack’s storied research team aggregates and validates the ratings which recommend either buy, sell, or hold. In addition to providing current ratings, this data feed is intended to provide comprehensive historical brokerage ratings for detailed back testing analysis of Zack’s estimates.
In addition to forecasting future earnings, sales and price levels, most sell-side analysts will issue a recommendation or rating on whether or not to trade a stock based on their perception of its near-term money making potential. Changes in brokerage ratings often have an immediate impact on the price of a stock. Analysts can access these buy, sell, and hold recommendations directly in their spreadsheets via an Excel add-in and developers can access the ratings in their applications via API. Users of this feed can also access historical ratings to test the relationship between ratings and actual price performance.
This data is available via Excel, Google Sheets, Excel Screener and Web API.
