"Looking for some simple guidance on what stocks to buy or sell?

Well, Wall Street is more than happy to help.

In fact, big banks in Wall Street employ hundreds of equity analysts who spend countless hours analyzing stocks. These highly educated analysts then issue very clear “buy” and “sell” recommendations.

So when a bunch of Wall Street Analysts have a “buy” rating on a particular stock, obviously you should be buying, right?


The reality is the weatherman is better at predicting the future than most Wall Street analysts. These highly paid experts are horrible at picking stocks.

Take now, for example. At the moment, Wall Street analysts all hate one emerging market in particular. Personally, I can’t wait to grab some shares in it."
