Great point well made

From an article from the New York Times Magazine by Michael Lewis:

It is still O.K. for the analysts to lowball their estimates of corporate earnings and plug the stocks of the companies they take public so that they remain in the good graces of those companies. The S.E.C. would protest that the analysts don’t actually own the stocks they plug, but that is a distinction without a difference: they profit mightily and directly from its rise.

Actually, the whole article is a great read, put it on your to-do list.
