Recent Analyst Upgrades Make These 5 Stocks Attractive

With a deluge of stocks flooding the market at any point of time, investors might end up making a wrong choice while designing their portfolio in the absence of proper know-how.

Moreover, time constraint makes the task more difficult. Choice of improper stocks can adversely impact returns, thereby ruining the objective of investing hard-earned money in the highly unpredictable stock market.

Broker Advice - The Way Out

To avoid such confusion, investors, more often than not rely guidance provided by brokers- who are deemed to be experts in the field. The opinion of brokers is highly sought after by investors as they have a clear insight into the nitty gritty of the investment world. Individual investors, more often than not, do not have access to such detailed and well-researched information.

Out of the three types of brokers (sell-side, buy-side and independent) present, sell-side analysts are the most common. They are employed by various brokerage firms to provide unbiased opinion on stocks. Meanwhile, buy-side analysts are employed by hedge funds, mutual funds and others while independent analysts directly sell their reports to investors.
