Analysts Running Scared Commentary April 5, 2006

I thought this commentary was quite interesting in discussing herd mentality among Wall Street analysts and in pointing out that everybody has self-interests to serve, including analysts. But the best part of this article is how they (inadvertently) prove their own point towards the end of the article:

"Now, mind you, any pasture that the analyst herd is so eager to leave is probably laden with certain, er, land mines. So you do want to watch your step as you go a-grazing. That's where our research team at the Motley Fool Inside Value newsletter service can help. They're adept at picking their way through well-used fields of abandoned stocks...." etc. etc.
