I think zacks had a SELL on SID when sid was at $3.20 when I was buying, then they put a strong buy on it out of the blue after SID stock had gone up...............I think that outfit just has some computer program that identifies stock trends then places recommendations on the trend so they are late to the game, or could it be that Zack's gets its revenues from institutions and makes money by helping institutions BUY and sell stocks? Could it be that Institutions buy stocks when zacks puts a sell on then and sell stocks when zacks puts a buy on them?
were you burned that bad to go from pumper to basher that quickly? You realize the reason the average investor doesn't outperform the market is because they invest based on emotion.... You seem to have no emotional competence for investing.
Direct personal advice from a good broker you know and trust is one thing, and the good ones don't even deal w people who are investing less than $5 million.
Stock research reports are pretty much useless. I had access to Goldman Sachs stock research for a while, and it was all just as worthless as third-tier #$%$ like Zacks. In fact, you can pretty much assume that anything you can access by clicking a headline on Yahoo!!!!! Finance is worthless.
