You'll find Earnings and Analyst Ratings for US and Canadian Stocks on Barchart.com.

Analyst Ratings evaluate a stock on a scale of 1 (Strong Buy) to 5 (Strong Sell). You'll find current and historical tables that help you evaluate how "the experts" have viewed the stock, providing a snapshot of the short-term trend in analyst sentiment.
We've developed a "micro-site" for Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), accessed by clicking the ETFs tab at the top of the site. As many traders have learned, strategies for buying and selling ETFs are much different than buying and selling traditional stocks.

Finding Stocks, ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), Indices, Mutual Funds, Money Market Funds, or Forex contracts that match your trading objectives is now easier than ever, when you use the Barchart.com Advanced Market Screener. We take the dizzying task of sifting through mountains of information before buying or selling a stock or commodity and automate it by allowing you to enter your specific investment criteria.
Our screener combines the power and sophistication of an advanced application with an easy-to-use interface. What would normally takes days to manually perform extensive research now takes a matter of just seconds.
