If you read the recommendation without using TipRanks Add-On, here are the statistics behind the analyst that did the upgrade (Peter Misek)
since 2009 he has an exact 50% success rate on his Buy/Sell ratings (29 out of 58 Buy/Sell outperformed the S&P500)
his average return on each recommendation yield -1% below the S&P500
basically following him is equivalent to flipping a coin (even less - because of the negative return).
Where is the value in any Analyst Community ..like a herd, or pack of Wolves, they basically are most bearish at the bottom and love a stock at a top...if you trade against the grain and against the backdrop severe negative sentiment you probably make a buck or two. Simply put ..be a contrary Investor. If 7 more Peter Misek's turn bullish get ready to cash in. If Forbes, Motley Fool and other media sites start reporting Bullish spins on RIMM do the same. For now ..they gave you the first half of the trade by both analyzing and reporting the death of RIMM : the bottom and great entry point to go long is the result...when they bounce back like penguins to the bullish side in droves...punch your long ticket and don't forget to say thanks for the always revealing guidance.
Nice Analysis :)
Actually there are quite a few with impressing track record. TipRanks shows you their exact track record including each recommendation they made thats online (crowd sourcing tech) so when you run into ones opinion you can know his historical performance and decide if he is worth listening too or just a biased piece of !@#
