Source for Goldman Sachs upgrades/downgrades

    pbj no longer publishes Goldman Sachs upgrades/downgrades on its Upgrades/Downgrades Calendar.

    Is there another reliable source for Goldman Sachs upgrades/downgrades that is available pre-market in time for opening orders?

    It seems that this change was made around May 1, 2007. I received this reply from

    >Goldman Sachs has not authorized to publish their ratings changes to
    >our Upgrades/Downgrades Calendar; therefore, you won't see their ratings
    >changes listed there.
    >On occasion, we will make note of a Goldman move on our In Play page,
    >but that is only after we have been able to verify the change through
    >two, independent public sources.

  3. Merrill stopped providing their ratings months back too.

    I didn't notice the Goldman change.

    This is a bad trend.

    Try The Fly on the wall.
    I have not checked them out in a while, but they were very timely on some ratings changes in the past, I believe they offer a trial.

    What "bad trend"? The free source I cited still has both GS and ML. Most recent examples from the RSS feed:

  6. Yes, Streetinsider does look good, thanks for the tip

    bad trend because, for sure Merrill for one have actively tracked down and threatened to sue those disseminating their research without their permission.

    They yanked them from Briefing and threatened theflyonthewall (don't know where they are now with flyonthewall but if Merril have not yet yanked their ratings, they soon will)

    a while back shut out retail traders from their site - that was a great resource

    Reuters are shutting down their subscription screener in September which was out and out the best of its kind outside of the institutional screeners which cost a fortune.

    Those trends!
