Stock Prices Are based on Seller Supply and Buyer Demand.
A stock’s price is determined primarily by the seller’s supply and demand of its shares, but other factors can impact its price. One of these is analyst upgrades and downgrades.
Analysts often change their ratings of companies if they believe the Company is a “buy,” which can lead to an upward or downward movement in its stock price.
This is why we’ve made it a point to regularly monitor analyst ratings of our stocks. If an analyst changes their rating to a “sell,” we’ll look for an opportunity to buy the stock at a discount to its current price.
Stocks that are on a “buy” are ones we think have strong fundamentals, such as growth or profitability. They also can increase in value as investors trust their performance.
