Your Handy Guide to Weiss Ratings Icons
There are several icons we use that allow you to get specific information at a glance.
Here is your handy reference guide to the most often used:
Letter Grades and Color Connotation:
For a detailed explanation of what each letter grade means, and what the colors signify for both Investment Ratings and Safety Ratings, see our Ratings Definitions page.
Gray Flag with a Star:
This company is NOT on your Watchlist. Clicking this icon will ADD this company to your Watchlist.
Gold Flag with a Check Mark:
This company is on your Watchlist. Clicking this icon will REMOVE this company from your Watchlist
52-Week Low / 52-Week High:
Click the 1y tab in the Price History for a stock or ETF, and you’ll see a circled L marking the 52-week low, and a circled H for the 52-week high.
Dividends and Stock Splits:
While looking at a stock’s Price History, a circled D marks where the company paid a dividend. An S inside a square indicates the date of a stock split.
Green Arrows / Red Arrows:
A green arrow next to an Investment Rating means it has been upgraded within the last 10 days.
A green arrow next to a Safety Rating means it has been upgraded within the last Quarter.
A red arrow next to an Investment Rating means it has been downgraded within the last 10 days.
A red arrow next to a Safety Rating means it has been downgraded within the last Quarter.
