why these calls, which are purely subjective and not based on any rationale, are designed for no other reason but to influence the, unfairly, to benefit certain groups. The question still remains--why is this practice not illegal and prosecutable? How anybody under the cloak of "analyst" could simply make an unsubstantiated utterances that moves the market one way or the other. In my opinion it renders the integrity and credibility of the market questionable.
Yes! Why do they, "analysts" always wait till a stock finally attempts to get out of a funk to issue these nonsensical ratings. What qualifies one as an "analysts", and how do you hold them responsible if in fact their actions are diabolical? I'm just tired of this. It's either them or the High Frequency Traders who push a stock in a direction that suits them at the time.
