Dissecting Analyst Reports: Reading Between the Lines of a Stock Call

Seminar Fee: $35* / *Early bird price valid until 22 April 2019 (U.P.$40)

Most financial institutions provide analyst reports on stocks and their industry outlook. With an overwhelming variety of information and opinions out there, how does one distinguish the quality of one analyst report amongst others?

The terms “BUY, SELL, HOLD, OUTPERFORM, UNDERPERFORM” present different stock calls in analyst reports. How does one “read between the lines” to know exactly what these terms mean?

Learning Outcomes

In this seminar, participants will be empowered with the knowledge to:

  1. Pick out important sections in analyst reports e.g. executive summary, key financial data and disclaimers.
  2. Understand the meaning of different stock calls and their relation to target price.
  3. Analyse notable details in any analyst report such as the reason for a stock call and the assumptions for target price calculation.
  4. Compare views by different analysts on the same topic.
  5. Analyst reports provide a wealth of information on company stocks as analysts visit companies and have the opportunity to interact with key management and staff. Learn how you can make an informed decision from these reports.
  6. Participants will be able to test their newly acquired knowledge with real case studies in small group discussions.
