It can't be ideology since MSFT is in bed with radical leftist media ideology. It can't be justified technically because most media analysts don't have the smarts or perspective to do a reasonable evaluation but somehow they all come to same conclusions. Could it be that their analysts have big personal money investments which favor keeping MSFT down? We should demand that big media be compelled to reveal the personal investments of their executives and analysts in rivals of MSFT . Obama should get right on that when he takes a break from vacationing and golfing.
Because basically the media knows nothing about analyzing companies. They are all a bunch of parrots who say the same thing over and over. Many are used by market manipulators but they are too stupid to know it. Analysts come in two flavors. The dumb who just repeat what others say to keep their job and the other kind have an agenda to manipulate the price of a stock. Both the media and sell side analysts will not help you make money investing. If you listen to them you are almost certain to lose money. The analyst/media complex is the most crooked thing in the investing world. It is designed to take small investor money and give it WallStreet elite.
