Ranking the analysts

Another way of looking at it is that Apple’s analysts did worse than the company this quarter, and the amateurs as a group did worse than the pros.

Philip Elmer-DeWitt’s post-game roundup of Wall Street analyst winners and losers and their prediction of Apple stock performance has become one of my favorite things to look for after an earnings call.

  • Nicolae Mihalache should privately make his normal prediction then completely go the opposite route publicly. 🙂

  • This is meaningless, one should rank them by how much soft dollar commissions they brought their financial institutions or how many click throughs they generated, after all that’s how they get paid, everything else is just an ink hook.
