Hold-to-buy relative to hold-to-strong buy), controlling for the information in both target price and earnings forecast revisions. We expect the magnitude of a recommendation revision to be informative even in the presence of target prices. For a given target price revision, the magnitude of the associated recommendation revision can provide additional information on an analyst’s level of con¢dence in that target price. For example, a positive revision in a target price could be perceived as more credible (or more precise) when accompanied by a revision from a hold to a strong buy rather than a revision from a hold to a buy recommendation.

Second, the evidence that target price revisions contain information regarding future abnormal returns is important and consistent with either market underreaction due to investor behavioral biases or rational learning in the face of structural uncertainty (Brav and Heaton (2002)). The evidence of such a ‘‘drift,’’ however interpreted, is also relevant to the current debate regarding the objectivity and unbiasedness of analyst reports. Our ¢ndings should serve as a starting point for further research on various related questions.
