Morningstar Fair Value Estimate

Our Fair Value Estimate helps you understand the worth of a stock over time. It uses a per-share-price estimate and is based on our thorough analysis of a company’s current operations, business risks and opportunities, and outlook to determine if something is overvalued or undervalued.

Morningstar Rating™ for stocks

The Morningstar Rating™ for stocks—also called the star rating—is your signal for when a stock is trading at a discount or when it may be time to sell. It considers a stock’s current price, Morningstar’s estimate of its fair value, and the uncertainty rating of that fair value. The bigger the discount, the higher the star rating.

Morningstar® Economic Moat™ Rating

Our moat rating represents a company's ability to fend off competition and earn high returns. We look at a company’s network effect, intangible assets, cost advantage, switching costs, and efficient scale when determining the size of its moat, which can be wide, narrow, or none.
