Well... There's your problem. You let the "chia_katt" out of the bag. Your a Cramerite. LOL! That is almost too perfect. Hilarious! ROFLMAO!!! Do you get all your best investment advice from Mad Money? LOL!
Man, you are PRICELESS! You have brought me many laughs and smiles today. Tell you what, next time I'm in Jersey I should buy you a beer. I bet you are a real funny guy. LOL!
Any shift of the strong buys to just a buy or hold will send the shares spiraling another 5-9%. The analyst consensus is certainly a bit skewed to the top end.
Let's put it this way, using a qualitative scoring metric, where strong buys = 2, buys = 1, holds = 0, sells = -1, and strong sells = -2. On a weighted basis, this gives us a score of 0.5, or between buy and hold. I would expect the consensus to drift lower towards a hold overall.
