New Financial Resource – Try It Out!

piles of coins and green things growing -

Try out the new Weiss Financial Ratings database, available as a 6-month trial, and take charge of your financial health.  Check ratings and performance of not only stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and ETFs, but also your bank, credit union, and insurance companies – all in one place.

Set up a “watch list” of the securities and companies you follow and get automatic alerts when ratings change.  Read news and opinion articles about investment topics by experienced Weiss Ratings analysts.  Create your own “screeners” to compare companies or investments using criteria that are important to you.

Compare the new Weiss Ratings to our other investment databases and tell us which ones we should keep:

  • Morningstar Investment Research Center offers independent ratings and analysis for stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs as well as tools for evaluating the asset mix of your portfolio and your financial readiness for college tuition payments or retirement.
  • Value Line Research Center provides in-depth research on companies, industries, markets, and economies and evaluates stocks using ratings of timeliness (performance projections), safety, and financial strength.

All three databases offer independent analysis and provide educational materials, such as articles, videos, or short courses on investment topics. Find them on our website at Subject Guide > Business and Career.  ​At-home access requires a Belmont library card.  ​
