Understanding the Equity Summary Score Methodology 2 3. Calculate – The normalized analysts’ recommendations and the accuracy weightings are combined to create a single score. For the largest 1,500 stocks by market capitalization, these scores are then forcibly ranked against all the other scores to create a standardized Equity Summary Score on a scale of 0.1 to 10.0 for the 1,500 stocks. This means that there will be a uniform distribution of scores provided by the model thereby assisting investors in evaluating the largest stocks (in terms of Understanding the Equity Summary Score Methodology Provided By 2 capitalization), which typically make up the majority of individual investors’ portfolios. Finally, smaller cap stocks are then slotted into this distribution without a force ranking, and may not exhibit the same balanced distribution. The Equity Summary Score and associated sentiment ratings by StarMine are: 0.1 to 1.0 ‐ very bearish 1.1 to 3.0 ‐ bearish 3.1 to 7.0 ‐ neutral 7.1 to 9.0 ‐ bullish 9.1 to 10.0 ‐ very bullish Other Important Model Factors:  An Equity Summary Score is only provided for stocks with ratings from four or more independent research providers.  New research providers are ramped in slowly by StarMine to avoid rapid fluctuations in Equity Summary Scores. Indep. research providers that are removed from Fidelity.com will similarly be ramped out slowly to avoid rapid fluctuations. Notes on Using the Equity Summary Score: The Equity Summary Score and sentiment ratings are ratings of relative, not absolute forecasted performance. The StarMine model anticipates that the highest rated stocks, those labeled “Very Bullish” as a group, may outperform lower rated groups of stocks. In a rising market, most stocks may experience price increases, and in a declining market, most stocks may experience price declines  Proper diversification within a portfolio is critical to the effective use of the Equity Summary Score. Individual company performance is subject to a broad range of factors that cannot be adequately captured in any rating system.  Larger differences in Equity Summary Scores may lead to differences in future performance. The sentiment rating labels should only be used for quick categorization. An 8.9 Bullish is closer to a 9.1 Very Bullish than a 7.1 Bullish.  For a customer holding a stock with a lower Equity Summary Score, there are many important considerations (for example, taxes) that may be much more important than the Score.  The Equity Summary Score by StarMine does not predict future performance of underlying stocks. The Equity Summary Score model has only been in production since August 2009 and therefore no assumptions should be made about how the model will perform in differing market conditions. Understanding the Equity Summary Score Methodology Provided By 3 How has the Equity Summary Score performed? Transparency is a core value at Fidelity, and that is why StarMine provides Fidelity with a view of the historical aggregate performance of the Equity Summary Score across all covered stocks each month. You can use this to obtain insight into the performance and composition of the Equity Summary Score. In addition, the individual stock price performance during each period of the Equity Summary

Peer-to-peer systems         Decentralized architecture without a trusted intermediary. Peers are both suppliers and consumers of resources, in contrast to the traditional client-server model where servers supply, and clients consume. Peer-to-peer systems often implement an Application Layer overlay network on top of the native or physical network topology. Such overlays are used for indexing and peer discovery. Content is typically exchanged directly over the underlying IP network. Anonymous peer-to-peer systems implement extra routing layers to obscure the identity of the source or destination of queries. In structured peer-to-peer networks, connections in the overlay are fixed. They typically use distributed hash table-based (DHT) indexing, such as in the Chord system developed at MIT Unstructured peer-to-peer networks do not provide any algorithm for organization or optimization of network connections. Advantages    use of spare resources at many sites difficult to censor content Disadvantage  Finding information in a large peer-to-peer network is hard. Lecture 16 8
