Morningstar star ratings – Back test
Morningstar rates mutual funds from 1 to 5 stars based on how well they’ve performed (after adjusting for risk and accounting for sales charges) in comparison to similar funds. Within each Morningstar Category, the top 10% of funds receive 5 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Funds are rated for up to three time periods-three-, five-, and 10-years and these ratings are combined to produce an overall rating. Funds with less than three years of history are not rated. Ratings are objective, based entirely on a mathematical evaluation of past performance. They’re a useful tool for identifying funds worthy of further research, but shouldn’t be considered buy or sell signals.
Morningstar Medalist ratings – Forward looking
Funds can receive Morningstar analysts' highest ratings: Gold, Silver, or Bronze.
The Analyst Rating for funds (including our Medalist ratings) reflects a Morningstar analyst's qualitative assessment of a fund's future prospects. This is different than the star rating, which is purely quantitative and backward-looking.
- The Analyst Rating is based on the analyst's conviction in the fund's ability to perform better than similar funds over the long term.
- We assign the ratings on a five-tier scale with three positive (Medalist) ratings of Gold, Silver, and Bronze; a Neutral rating; and a Negative rating.
- If a fund receives a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Medalist rating, that means we expect it to perform better than similar funds over a full market cycle of at least five years.
