    Yahoo 1 Yr Estimate

    I hadn't noticed when it happened, but it's over 7 now. Wasn't it just in the fives?

    • I take little solace from Yahoo's estimates and put no stock in them (pun intended). If you notice they are derived from 4 analysts, one of which has a $2 target, and another a $13 target. Further complicating the veracity of their predictions, is the now blank upgrade/downgrade board?

      Just like the calm waters before a Tsunami, I'm more convinced that we are about to see a major move based on the extremely low volume. The momentum players (long and short) have given up on the stock, just when the company is going through the most critical quarter of its existence. Such apathy, combined with results (good or bad) is going to propel this stock into the stratosphere, or tank it in the toilet. In this sense the $2 (maybe should be $1) and $13 targets are indeed likely accurate (just don't know which one it will end up being). Of course I'm a #$%$-eyed optimist, so just call me Rosy.

      • I agree with Post. Don't pay much attention to Yahoo price targets. Analysts know that with these thinly followed stocks that their extremely high (or low) target is like the "tail wagging the dog" with these small companies.

        Still watching HZNP, but not currently in it. Sold in the 2.40s awhile ago. NAVB and AVNR (long time hold) have my attention right now.


    • A week or so ago - around the time they dumped Covidien - Yahoo updated the analyst estimates. Yeah, it (the median estimate) WAS around $5.50 as I recall. Nice to see the positive change, for sure.
