Analysts are hucksters for the trading desk. They short, downgrade, cover / go long, upgrade, sell. They do it all the time, every day in fact. And they throw a lot of grease to the SEC to get away with it - isn't that the American way?
just like the horse races. they know before it happens. for most of us, we have to hope to be in the right place at the right time, meaning having the same bet as them.it seems as we get to win once in awhile, but they always seem to get it back, and then some. is this just me, or do millions agree with me.
