What is the difference between "accumulate" and "buy"?

Hello inzys!

Simply put, a "buy" rating would be a higher rating than "accumulate".

With a buy rating, the recommendation is that it's currently a good time to buy now.

With a rating of "accumulate" the recommendation would be to buy, but to do it over a period of time, as in small amounts over weeks for example.

Hope this helps!

...but I still am...
