With all due respect, Saul, I think you're stretching here as you've never liked ad-related stocks and have been ready to jettison TTD for awhile. We don't know who these analysts/investment bankers are and for all we know there is a guy sitting across from them buying up the stock on these price cuts/downgrades.

"Here's what the analysts think about it so far" is an off-the-cuff comment, but it implies two analysts represent the thinking of all analysts. Obviously you meant here's what the first two analysts to weigh in think, but it's worth noting how the meaning of the sentence changes depending on language used.

Point being, seems to this Saul-fan and Fool, the Saul/TTD relationship was never going to be a life-long venture. The stock remains very popular throughout Fooldom, of 18 analysts on Vanguard 8 have Buy, 10 Hold, none sell. And it's no secret the Fool is not about to sell a stock with this many tailwinds anytime soon.

I'm not trying to be nitpicky, just think it's an important point, that as Damodaran says, if we want a reason to sell a stock we'll find it - whether it's in detailed spreadsheets, perceived shifts in the narrative, dream visions, goat entrails or investment banker upgrades/downgrades.
