TipRanks is a an internationally based company that offers users access to stock recommendations from the top stop pickers as ranked by portfolio returns or other categories.
How Does TipRanks 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.

The problem here i think is that forecasts are not updated in a timely manner, so your looking at an outdated opinion , also analysts don’t seem to be very good at predicting future share values.
It's a Hard "No" From Me
I have the Ultimate (highest level) subscription. These folks think they don't have to answer the phone or email.
If I pay for the highest level service, a live rep should be there to answer my questions.
They have an answering service, and no one returns your calls.
If a Non-U.S. business wants to make money from U.S. customers, that business should be required to have live staff available during U.S. business hours.
Enough of taking people's money and running off.
Not a fan
Doesn't sync well with my portfolio. would take days to update sometimes. Then recently it wanted me to re-authorize my Robinhood access (or pay to never have to do that step again which I am not paying).
Well had trouble getting Robinhood to send an authorization code and i went into the settings and saw some troubling stuff. I think tiprank leaked my Robinhood password.
I looked in my device activity on my account, only 2 devices should ever be listed and one of the devices it listed as a Mac OS device. I don't use nor have I ever owned a Mac.
The only places my password has ever been put in was on my phone, my pc and on my pc to sync my portfolio to the site. I used Robinhood secure account feature and I am not going to use tip rank ever again just in case.
They are the only odd man in the equation and my trust is easily lost.
I downloaded the iphone app after seeing an ad saying there was 100% money back guarantee if cancelled within 30 days. I cancelled after a couple of weeks of trying it. The money-back guarantee doesn't apply if you purchase through Apple.
Beware of Annual Subscriptions
Anyone selling subscriptions annually and not monthly is red flag. They claim you have 30 days for refund but it's total b.s don't trust these clowns.
I signed up only because it says 30 day money back guarantee and now I'm wasting so much of my time and money trying to get a refund.
I feel like tipranks is a scam. They offer only a yearly subscription. That's a red flag to every real business man.
Anyways the 30 days lead me to try and I am so unhappy with it. It's total b.s you need to make it easier to cancel subscription. I contacted tipranks and was told I can't get refund after 15 days because I got it thru Google pay.
I have to contact Google to get money. So I contacted Google and they said they can't refund my money. So is this not theft and scam like.
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.
Valuable website, great support
Hi, please can you check your Spam for emails from [email protected] Unfortunately, some emails have not been reaching inboxes recently. Anyone who asks for a refund will get one. If you can't locate an email, please feel welcome to contact me directly at [email protected]
No emails in the junk and I also called and there was no response despite leaving a message to your 'third party outsourced receptionist'.
I was lucky enough to have paid via PayPal and was able to get a refund via them.
I should also point that emails about all other topics were coming through fine before and after that so that excuse doesn't fly.
Please feel welcome to email me directly so we can investigate why you didn't hear back from us. You can reach me at [email protected]
We will never deny a cancelation request.
I want to cancel my subscription and can find no way to contact you. They even want me to fill out and credit card for questions.I am about to call my bank for help. Please answer my request to cancel all subscriptions robertabrockman1311 at gmail.com
when I filled out the first form, it asks for business name and email. I am retired and have no such information. It will not let you continue without this. So no access. I am so frustrated and just want to cancel my subsription
Great for stock research
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!
There’s definitely value in it.
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.
You sound so fake
They automatically re signed me up for another year without permission
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.
We apologise for any inconvenience, and would like to state that your account has been credited to your satisfaction on the same day you contacted us.
