Stock prices can be greatly impacted by analyst upgrades and downgrades. Despite the fact that these stocks may generate short-term profits, analysts are very likely to downgrade them, causing investors to lose money.
Stocks are classified by analysts into three tiers:
Based on analyst projections of “BUY”, the stock is expected to beat the market in the near future. Overweight and Outperform are also terms analysts use to describe “Buy.”
If the analyst anticipates that a stock’s performance won’t differ much from that of the overall market performance, he or she will recommend the “Hold” rating. When a stock has a Hold rating, it is not recommended to buy or sell the stock. A hold by an analyst may also be referred to as equal weight or market performance.
Stocks are given “sell” ratings when analysts predict they will underperform. Analysts’ rating systems rarely assign stocks a “Sell” as they prefer to give Positive or Neutral ratings. Underperform and Underweight can also be used as indicators of a “Sell”.
