Haven't you learned by now that Investment Banking Corporations give out opinions based on their own self interest?
Sometimes they want out of a stock and recommend it it, to create volume so they can get out easily.
Other times they are taking a long term loss for their clients and want to raise the price so that when they report by the end of the year they will look better.
Anyway, you'll never know what there motives are.
Just watch the stocks that Needham, Goldman Sachs, and other investment banking houses pan or tout.
There record is the same as Jim Cramer's. 50/50
