I was wondering how reliable the analyst opinions are on Yahoo Finance. So just for fun, I kept track of the opinions on stocks in the Nasdaq 100 index and averaged them together each week. There is a little bit of missing data. (Strong Buy) 1.0 - 5.0 (Sell) I inverted the values so that a buy opinion would be higher on the chart than a sell opinion. I think it's interesting how the average opinion stayed between 2 and 3 as the market plummeted. Is 3 neutral? Also looks like a bit of opinion flip flopping was going on from July to October.
