I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m not shy about setting Fair Value Price Targets for recommended stocks. I don’t see a lot of people out there doing this – pretty obvious why…I’m sure someone will be sure to point out how precisely wrong I’ve been when I come up with a few duds! Ouch!
But, in an ideal world, the best way I’d evaluate any recommendation from a website or blog is to know the writer’s price target and portfolio stake. Ownership demonstrates their conviction, the size of their stake confirms the strength of this conviction, and their price target allows the reader to perform their own risk/reward evaluation. What are your own thoughts? Do you agree whole-heartedly, partially, or do you think this approach is a danger or a hindrance in some way?
