There are about 6,000 companies trading on the U.S. markets, and investors have many ways to determine which company is worth their money and which should be left until it reaches better days. Analysts from Wall Street have forecasted the average target price for companies in the S&P 500 index, which is the benchmark of U.S. equities.

We can easily assume that analysts do not have to gain anything in terms of business while issuing a negative projection. That is why Insider Monkey pays more attention to this type of estimates.
