If this company grows earnings by 43% in the next year I would put all my money in it and I think it will at least triple in price in the next 5 years, how can it be then that they rated a "Hold"???Because it won't necessarily triple in price. Though having recommended it, I'd sure love to see that happen.Investors tend to anticipate growth before it happens, and bid up a stock's price in expectation of the growth materializing. In WBD's case, I suspect much of the expected earnings growth is already baked into the current price. An analyst who thinks similarly, might not advise buying the stock simply because he thinks its price will flatline while it waits for earnings to catch up to it.Rich
