  • Why BlackBerry's Gain Was A Mirage [View article]
    there were many analysts estimations that made the stock volatile in the last month... however there are only 3-4 analysts that are usually right on the money while the rest seem to constantly miss the target..
    The analyst with the hisghest success ratio and most accurate EPS is Pierre Ferragu (from Bernstein) with 70% of his Buy ratings outperforming the markets since 2009. 3 weeks ago he recommended to Buy the stock. whoever listened to him did good. its important to distinguish between the unbiased accurate analysts and those who haven't got a clue.

  • Fifth Street Finance: This 11% Dividend Payer Upgraded By Analysts [View article]
    The analyst from J.P Morgan (his name is Richard Shane), has an average return of +3.7% above the SP500 based on a his last recommendations. he seems to be trustworthy but definitely not a Top Ranked analyst. He also recommended Selling American Express 2 weeks ago and whoever took that advice lost about 6%.

  • Analysts Likely To Be Shocked As Amazon's Growth Disappoints [View article]
    Unlike most sell side analysts. some of the analysts that upgraded AMZN this morning (and last week) are pretty accurate one:

    you got Heath Terry from Goldman Sachs that from what we detected outperformed the market in14 out of his last 28 ratings.

    you got Heather Bellini (Also from GS) that was correct in 9 out of her last 12 ratings (75%).

    and today you have another analyst for whom we have less significant data: Carlos Kirjner who has 6 out of 9 ratings.

    These are pretty good statistics and i would even say rare when it comes to analysts.

  • A Great Year Ahead For SodaStream [View article]
    Well written.
    a few more points for better and worth:

    1) If you ask an average American how easy is the procedure of replacing the carbon plug he will have much to say.
    this still needs some serious improvements and for now many americans bought the soda machine but isnt re filling it due to SodaStream's lack of distribution - needless to say that the US is the most important market.

    2) Israeli company regulations - in a few other countries there are strict "purchasing Israeli goods" policies that can affect their sales.. its not something you see in mega Israeli companies such as TEVA or Checkpoint, but the threat exists.

    3) Sodastream is a small volatile company competing with Giants (KO,DPS,etc..)

    4)I am not sure about this one but at some point i can assume their patent will expire

    Some Good points:

    1) great management.
    2) TipRanks top Analysts all give SODA a "Strong Buy" or equivalent.

    3) they do consistently beat analysts expectations and there is a very good momentum.

    4) They are still small enough to react to Market Trends and for an under billion dollar Mkt Cap they have a very strong brand.
