Signal or Noise?

Introducing a new metric for gauging the funds that investors are most interested in.

Mentioned: , ,

Today, we’re beginning the rollout of a new Morningstar fund metric called "Signal." This data point, which is now available for open-end funds and exchange-traded funds for all Morningstar Premium Members, combines information about a fund’s web traffic on Morningstar.com with measurements based on the Morningstar Analyst Rating and, to expand the coverage universe, the Morningstar Quantitative Rating. These forward-looking ratings are used as an indication of an investment's quality.

This offers you a new way to evaluate the level of interest in an investment among your peers, placed in the context of Morningstar's rigorous framework for rating these investments.

This article is exclusive to Morningstar Premium members.
