TheStreet Ratings Guides
TheStreet’s rating scale is extremely straightforward and easy to understand. There are no complicated number grades to interpret, no colored paper to decode, and no stars to count. Instead, each entry gets a simple, intuitive letter grade that immediately identifies the wheat from the chaff. This is one more reason why TheStreet Ratings is widely recognized as "America's Consumer Advocate for Financial Safety." The TheStreet Safety Ratings have been proven to be the most accurate available from any of the major rating agencies. Plus, unlike the other major rating agencies, TheStreet does not accept compensation from the companies it rates, and thus does not allow companies to influence the ratings they receive or to suppress the release of their ratings. In fact, the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) validated TheStreet’s accuracy in its Insurance Ratings study, and that same superior rating methodology is used when deriving all other ratings as well.
