Timeliness is a proprietary ranking system used to rate stocks taking into consideration the likely price performance of a stock over a short time period - typically less than a year. Common market factors - the underlying fundamentals are not measured in this stock rating system. The rating of "A" is the highest and that of "E" is the lowest. These ratings are updated on a regular basis - as often as daily.
Timeliness is one of the most widely cited criteria as reported by the Value Line Publishing, Inc., which is one of the widest read research publications in the world. A high timeliness rating, according to Value Line, is the best expectation of price performance of a given stock in the market in the short run.
A rating of "A" as mentioned, is the highest and "E" is the lowest - but the "A" stocks are much more volatile as compared to the "E" stocks. So the fundamental relation of high risk high returns still holds true even to this rating.
