When I mouse over gear in SW: TOR, the game shows me the stat comparison between the piece and what I have equipped.

Is there a way to do that for my companion's gear?

I'm voting to close this question because companion stats now come purely from level, Presence, and Influence (as of Patch 4.0). Companion gear is purely for looks; as such, comparing stats for it is no longer useful. – Matthew Read Dec 9 '15 at 21:40
@MatthewRead Please check this meta thread as there's a debate going for closing obsolete questions. As far as I can tell, we should not close them. – Jonathan Drapeau Dec 10 '15 at 15:08

Yes, go to:

Preferences - User Interface - Enable Companion Comparative Tooltips

Note, if your companion has nothing in that slot, nothing shows for them. This can be an issue at the lower levels since it makes it look like it isn't working.

Also, you must have your companion summoned. And it only shows comparisons for the currently summoned companion.
