Investing news and research

When you’re investing, knowledge is valuable, which is why we’ve partnered with Morningstar to bring you trusted and relevant premium research. We give you access to deep market intelligence, putting dynamic information and tools, including stock recommendations, at your fingertips.

You’ll be able to better visualise market performance and optimise your portfolio with our dynamic displays, including heat maps and intuitive charting. We’ll keep you informed of market developments, providing the latest headlines; daily pre-market, intraday and post-market commentary; and video reports.

Whether you wish to seek a new trading opportunity to match your criteria, compare a share against its peers, or simply need to keep up to date with the daily market movements, our premium research tools can help you be a smart investor.

Daily Share Tracker

Our free Daily Share Tracker email service will help you stay informed and up to date on the shares you own. It will also give you insights and ideas that may inspire your next investment.

Each morning, you will receive your personalised Daily Share Tracker email, comparing the last traded price of up to 15 shares you own with Morningstar’s latest valuation. If you do not currently hold any shares, we’ll display Morningstar’s latest valuation on the top six price movers in the S&P/ASX 20 index.

Security recommendations

Three types of security recommendations are available: Consensus, Morningstar Quantitative and Morningstar Premium.   

Consensus provides the recommendations of analysts from various brokers and research houses.

Morningstar Quantitative recommendations are generated by a statistical model based on Morningstar’s analyst-driven equity ratings and quantitative statistics. A recommendation report, star rating and fair value estimate is provided for each security.

Both Morningstar Quantitative and Consensus recommendations are free to all Westpac Online Investing customers.

Morningstar Premium Research is designed for investors wanting more detailed information and is available on subscription. It offers analysts’ recommendations for a wide selection of companies. It also provides in-depth analysis, forecasts, detailed expert commentary about recommendations, and access to a range of sophisticated tools, including Morningstar’s model portfolio tool.

Subscribe to our Advanced Package, which offers Morningstar Premium Research, for just $20 a month. We will rebate this fee in each calendar month if you settle two or more trades or pay $50 or more in brokerage during the relevant month.
