Our direct equity ratings

We issue a Stock Viewpoint on each ASX 200 share, which includes an overall Approved or Not Approved rating, along with ratings for income and growth potential, and an action signal that identifies whether the share is under- or over-valued. Our direct equity ratings move beyond the traditional ‘buy-hold-sell’ approach, evaluating securities on a relative risk-reward basis rather than outright return potential.

Our direct equities research allows you to answer the three key questions:

Our overall Approved or Not Approved rating allows you to determine which shares should be considered for inclusion in your portfolio.

Each share is given an income and growth rating that enables you to determine how the share can be used to meet these specific investment objectives.

The action signal for each share determines whether the share is Undervalued, Fairly Valued or Overvalued, allowing you to time your purchase or sale.


Direct equity model portfolios

Our direct equity model portfolios allow you to take advantage of our share selection and portfolio construction expertise to provide ready-made solutions for clients. By accessing our share selection and portfolio management expertise, you can provide your clients with the benefits of direct share ownership through a simple, tailored process.
