Prof. Aswath Damodaran on the pressures Wall Street stock analysts face
December 02, 2013
Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Putting sell ratings on stocks can make an analyst's job tougher, said Aswath Damodaran, professor of finance at NYU's Leonard N. Stern School of Business. 'You're given this small group of companies to track, and the very little edge you have comes from the access you have to the company,' he said. 'If you put a sell recommendation on the stock, you're burning bridges.'"
