Morningstar Launches New Analyst Research Center Module For Advisors

Morningstar, Inc. yesterday launched a new credit research module providing corporate credit reports and ratings on 700 global issuers.

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only

Drawing on the work of the company's more than 100 credit and equity analysts, a Morningstar press release says the module also includes:

• Credit reports that provide overviews of a company's creditworthiness, including forward-looking risk measures derived from Morningstar analysts' five-year cash flow projections;
• "Highlighted Issuer" reports, which evaluate the outstanding bonds from a single corporate credit issuer and provide detailed analysis on specific bond issues Morningstar's credit research team finds attractive and others to avoid;
• "Issuer News and Notes" which address recent ratings changes Morningstar has made, along with Morningstar's take on macro-economic trends in the credit investing landscape. The reports review new bond issuances and explore the credit implications of corporate actions such as share repurchases, M&A activity and spin-offs.
