    Good point. Current analyst configurations are as follows:

    Strong Buy - 8
    Buy - 0
    Hold - 9
    Sell - 0
    Strong Sell - 3

    Any shift of the strong buys to just a buy or hold will send the shares spiraling another 5-9%. The analyst consensus is certainly a bit skewed to the top end.

    Let's put it this way, using a qualitative scoring metric, where strong buys = 2, buys = 1, holds = 0, sells = -1, and strong sells = -2. On a weighted basis, this gives us a score of 0.5, or between buy and hold. I would expect the consensus to drift lower towards a hold overall.
