Hits and Misses
Egan-Jones' accuracy has been proven by our record of Hits and Misses . Over time, major NRSROs' ratings have converged upon ours, displayed below as a hit.
- The "Hits and Misses" aims to measure the extent to which the major rating firms converge toward our rating. For example, if we rate an issuer "BB" and another rater moves from "BBB" to "BBB-", such an action would be considered a "hit". If the rater withdraws a rating, then such action would be neither a "hit" nor "miss". Additionally, if we rate an issuer at a different level than the other raters and warn that they might take a divergent action and subsequently take a divergent action, then such is not counted as a "miss".
