Initiation of coverage analyst(s) in stock above depicts the tendency of the investor. Investors, for their part, often assume there is something special in reserve, to attract the interest of analysts. In other words, they believe that the companies under coverage has a value that cannot be ignored.
It is obvious that the campaign chose for the cover. New coverage usually reflects a promising future was seen by the analyst(s). Sometimes the attention of investors on the stock motivates analysts to take a closer look at him. In the end, who doesn’t love to produce something that is already in demand? Thus, we often find that the ratings analysts on the newly added action are more favorable than ratings continuously stocks.
It is worth noting that the average change in recommendation, the broker is always preferable to one change recommendation.
New analyst coverage and the impact on the price movement
The movement of stock prices is a function of recommendations for new Analytics. As a rule, the reserves to see the upward movement of prices for new analysts compared to what was witnessed by updating clients within the existing coverage.
Positive recommendation – strong buy and as a rule, lead to a significant positive price reaction than the recommendations. On the contrary, barely analysts initiate coverage with a strong sell or sell recommendations.
Meanwhile, investors are beginning to pay more attention to promotion (which has very few or any existing coverage), to which the analyst gives new recommendations. In addition, any new information attracts portfolio managers to build position in the stock.
Below we have chosen five stocks that have seen an increase of analyst coverage over the past few weeks.
Number of broker ratings now greater than the number of broker ratings four weeks ago (this is my directory shares that have the latest coating).
Average broker Rating less than average broker Rating four weeks ago (‘less “means” better than four weeks ago).
The increase in analyst coverage and the increase in the average rating are the main criteria of this strategy, but we should consider other necessary parameters to make the strategy fool-proof.
Here other parameters of screening:
Price greater than or equal to $5 (in stock below $5 will be unable to create significant interest to most investors).
Average daily Volume greater than or equal to 100,000 shares (if volume is not enough, it will not attract private investors).
