Stockwatch: Trench warfare

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

As Europeans marked 70 years since the end of the war in Europe last weekend, conflict of a different sort was being waged between investors and investment bank analysts. Writers on behavioral finance typically think of conflict in the context of investors buying and selling the same stock.
