    Zacks, Market Edge and Charles Schwab rate CCG negatively

    Marekt Edge says to avoid the shares and actually suggests it be shorted.
    Charles Schwab research rates the company an F (A being best, B next best
    and down to an F for the lowest rating they give.
    Zacks also gives the company the lowest rating.

    As long as there so many negative recommendations on CCG is is going
    to have difficulty. I believe these three financial organizations that rate CCG
    so poorly have been right so far as 2013 was nasty in terms of share
    performance and 2014 looks like it is no better.

    I was looking for reasons to purchase other than a high yield and I could find
    nothing to suggest the equity was going to turn around. A high yield for an
    equity is usually a negative when compared to peers in the reit field.

    • have to remember that such ratings factor in relative strength and technical factors such as trend line slope and price relative to moving things that are going down always get negative ratings -- the idea being to make the service look like a genius...but you notice they never give any real advice -- "buy at this price" or "buy when volume is over such and such," etc...consequently, you never have any way of OBJECTIVELY assessing their performance...their "ratings" are designed to make THEM look good and to attract customers -- not to make YOU money...

      Sentiment: Buy

      • I constantly troll for potential investments. I spent a day going through financials, reports, news and articles on Campus Crest. You hope to find something worth an investment. My research came up with more negatives than positives. No improvement in dividend growth for three years, no improvement in share price, more debt, most likely higher interest rates in future years from the low interest environment of recent years. So I passed on some info. to investors. Some time investors post back that I missed something very important and its not as negative as I see or others see, such as Schwab, Zacks, etc.
