TipRanks, found online at TipRanks.com, is a an internationally based company that offers people access not to top stock recommendations, but to the top recommenders of stocks working online today.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, TipRanks was established when one of the creators realized that no matter how many “highly recommended” stocks he purchased, he always seemed to have trouble with the market. So he decided – out of curiosity – to begin studying the people who recommended stocks to see how well their recommendations actually performed.
He quickly realized that the vast majority of the online stock analysts and bloggers significantly underperformed in the market, which begged the question, why were these people the ones recommending stock purchases to other investors?
So the creators of TipRanks decided to create their Financial Accountability Engine which uses sophisticated algorithms to interpret the necessary financial information to determine how an analyst or blogger’s recommendations actually perform in the market, and therefore, whether or not you should actually be listening to them.
TipRanks says they will show you the measured performance of anyone who provides financial advice simply by searching for their name on their website. You will also see what analysts consistently outperform the markets, get real time recommendations, and more.
Their Basic Package is designed for new users who want to "get to know TipRanks." It is free to use and provides members with email alerts, the measured performance of analysts and bloggers, and gives you a personal dashboard to manage, track, and follow the stocks in your portfolio.
When you are ready to move up to a paid subscription, there are two different packages to choose from. The first is their Premium Plan, which is designed for individual investors and is priced at $29.95 per month, charged annually. This packages includes all the perks of the Basic Package, plus additional email alerts, the Top Stocks list, the Top 100 Experts, and more.
Finally, their Ultimate Package is priced at $49.95 per month and designed for professional investors who are interested in managing up to five different portfolios.
Both of the paid memberships come with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee, which states that customers who are not fully satisfied can email their Customer Service team with a cancellation request within the first 30 days of your purchase and you will be issued a refund, with no questions asked.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who have questions, issues, or complaints can contact their Customer Service by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link, or by using one of their email addresses, either [email protected] or [email protected], depending on your needs or question.
TipRanks is actually a fairly new startup, but the financial blogs and websites speak enthusiastically about what they may bring to the online world of finance, and the potential this company has for helping out the average personal investor.
And since the company provides both a free membership and a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee on both of their paid memberships, it appears that they are giving prospective customers a way to see what they have to offer before they make any sort of significant financial commitment, which is always a good sign.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are other investment platforms that allow their members to look at the public portfolios of other investors who are performing well, like Covestor and many others. This allows newer investors to follow the lead of others who are obviously more knowledgeable and better informed.

Didn't give me my refund after I sent a written cancellation request after three days
The most dishonest stock service that I've ever experienced. Their policy said that it's a free seven-day trial if I cancel before the seven days. I signed up on May 2, and I canceled on May 6, in writing. I received an email from them with what looked like a typical boilerplate response "I'm sorry to hear you cancelled" and "May I ask what led you to cancel?"
I ignored the email since I had other things to do. Only later did I realize that it said that they wanted me to reply to them again or my cancellation wasn't confirmed, so I still have not received my refund. Avoid these people!
I have had TipRanks for a few months, when I run out of trade ideas, my favorite feature is getting investment ideas. I end up scrolling through the most recommended stocks and the top performing experts, then I pick a few and run them through some technical analysis and decide to buy or not from there.
I’ve been using TipRanks since December. It helps me make better investments and have more confidence in my decisions. I particularly love the score they give stocks, because you can dig in and understand them – for example by seeing what’s happening with analysts, bloggers (who write about stocks), hedge funds, corporate insiders, what the news is saying and more. I recently turned to their support with a question and found them really helpful, far better than the level of service I usually receive. I highly recommend TipRanks to anyone who invests in the stock market.
I have been trying to get a refund from them after signing up. I am less than week into my membership and they have stopped replying to my emails. The fact that they take an annual fees instead of a monthly one made me skeptical but I thought it would be fine given the money back guarantee. Since they don’t refund you, I can now see why they have set up in this manner.
TipRanks is an amazing resource for anyone investing in the stock market.
I love how easy it is to research stocks. You don't need an understanding of how companies run, technical and fundamentals, or the economy etc.
You can literally see what analysts and financial bloggers are saying and if hedge funds and corporate insiders are buying or selling the stocks you are interested in. You also see what they call a Smart Score - a score of how likely a stock is to outperform.
That's only part of TipRanks. You can also see how well any of the experts they follow rates based on their performance which is really useful.
They also have portfolio management which I really like and I follow them on social to get their articles.
In short - totally recommend TipRanks!
Love the fact that you can look up any analyst or blogger and see their performance for free. Got a few great investment ideas using Smart Score. Service is constantly improving, keep it up!
Before using tip ranks I have tried Marketbeat, Zacks, IBD. Advantage, Motley Fool VecterVest and received a lot of useless, late and inaccurate information, plus a lot of plain ole BS. If you put them all together, they wouldn’t come close to info from Tipranks and ease of use.
And charged my CC, I have emailed them and not heard back yet.
I found their information merely ok, not something I would sign up for again.
I was ready to sign up for it and at the end of the form it has a check box asking you if you want them to store your credit card info.I did not so left it in checked.It would not let me process. I chose not to with all the hacking going on it's best to not have personal info all over the place. If the box is not checked off it won't let you proceed.I say fine and did not proceed. They lost my trust,after investigating it further the try to upsell you.Realize you only have access to 5 analysts.There is another level of acess.I can and will not do business with companies that use practices like this.Bad taste in my mouth.Don't reward these tactics and send a message.
