Argus Research Analyst Recommendation Undermines Yahoo Site Integrity
Argus Research Analyst Recommendation 'premium feature' is an ad masquerading as aggregate Analyst recommendation. It undermines yahoo site integrity, by intentionally misrepresenting Argus recommendation as the mean recommendation of all analyst. Bad for your reputation, places you beneath other reliable financial sites.
Thanks for your post! We will reevaluate how to best present this information moving forward. We always appreciate feedback, have a great day.

Analyst Recommendation on the Summary page is misleading. It represents the recommendation of a single analyst firm, and is often also N/A.
This is misleading since next to it is a 1 Year Target and Failr Value indicator that BOTH seem to represent the CONSENSUS as shown of the detailed Analysis section.
These need to be aligned and made not misleading.
To do this, the Analyst Recommendation on the summary page SHOULD represent the CONSENSUS recommendation as represented on the Analysis page; Strong Buy, Buy, Hold, Underperform or Sell.
PLEASE fix as this is often times misleading and very out of sync with the consensus view.
