MarketSmith created Top Stocks to give a broad range of investors strong stock investment ideas derived from proven research — not opinions.

This free stock app for iPhone and iPad gives users a quick and easy format for checking out top stock ideas daily. For those wanting to truly understand stocks and the market, Top Stocks also provides a learning path to active investment research. Learn more by watching our free archived webinar.

Let MarketSmith and Top Stocks help you take control of your investment life.

Top Stocks is about stock ideas

You receive five fresh stock ideas every day, drawn from distinct lists and supported by the industry-leading data and research used by MarketSmith. Themes of Top Stocks lists include "fastest-growing companies" and "stocks with the greatest growth potential."

Your stock ideas arrive as a row of ticker symbols near the bottom of the screen. Tap on a ticker to bring up that stock's chart and information. Upgrades, Plus and Premier, allow users to access more lists by tapping the list name at left and selecting from a menu.

Analyze each stock using two views:

TopStocks Chart View

Stock Chart

A stock chart conveys a wealth of information (no pun intended). You can learn a stock’s price, its volume (or the number of investors buying and selling it on a given day), the 50-day and 200-day moving averages of its price, the relative strength and the high and low points of its price daily. You can also view a stock's fundamental data (see below), earnings history, the next date a company is scheduled to report earnings, and more. To learn more about reading and interpreting stock charts, visit MarketSmith Stock Charts Overview.

TopStocks - Professor

Stock Professor

Top Stocks gives you two views for evaluating stocks: (1) the stock chart with fundamental data and (2) Stock Evaluation with "The Professor." The Professor allows you to quickly evaluate how strong a stock is, without digging into the numbers yourself. Gradually, you may begin to connect the Professor's analysis with the tools and stock chart. For more information about understanding company fundamentals, go to MarketSmith Fundamental Stock Analysis.

Top Stocks - Fundamentals

Both views give you access to company fundamental data.

Fundamentals, data derived from a company’s quarterly and annual financial reports, are the best way to measure a stock’s growth potential, to arrive at a proper valuation, and measure the characteristics of a good investment.
