Stock analysts often provide ratings on stocks (buy, hold, sell) and price targets. This practice is totally absurd.
Price targets are based economic calculations, yet we know that stock prices, especially in the short term, are largely influenced by mood.

The one minute video below demonstrates a real time example of the silliness of both the stock rating and target price.
