There’s an old joke on Wall Street:
Analysts: You don’t need them in a Bull market, you don’t want them in a Bear market . . .
I was reminded of that when I saw these two headlines cross the tape:
• Downgrades Hit Financial Stocks (WSJ)
Those of you who are active in the markets — what do you make of FinAns? Do you rely on them, fade certain ones, or just ignore ‘em all?
What should the role of Financial Analysts be to investors?
What say ye?
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
