Analysts working for brokerage firms track the performance of thousands of U.S. companies. An analyst upgrades a company if he/she thinks that the company stock price is underpriced, and downgrades a company if he/she thinks that the company stock price is overpriced and that its stock share may decline in the near future. Depending on the analyst's recommendation, the target price and the influence of the analyst, a stock share price can increase or decrease sharply. Several analysts are followed and watched by institutional, this tends to drive stock prices up or down even sharper when these analysts announce their recommendation changes.
