Now you know why most analysts are ex-traders.
Great great great great chart. The important point with this is that once everyone has recommended something, no one is left to buy it. So, I don't personally have anything against analysts or their poor performance or timing, but the great thing about them is that they give us very low-risk trading signals, especially once their idea fails. Feel free to keep a chart coming that have this level of commentary on them. Also - did you short Citigroup? If so, when, what did you risk and when did you cover?
