A common question we receive here at Skaffold is about who provides earnings forecasts and whether or not we should trust those forecasts.
Of course analysts are human and therefore fallible, and no one has a crystal ball or can accurately forecast the future 100% of the time.
So, should we as investors trust analysts? And why should we look at forecasts at all?

Financial advisers are no longer focusing mainly on traditional mining and banking stocks and are instead looking at service industries.
In April 2013, banks and resources formed the top seven out of the top ten researched stocks. In March 2014, services formed the top four stocks and five of the top ten. Just one financial stock (ANZ) and one energy stock (Titan Energy Services) were included in the top ten most researched shares.
This change in behaviour with advisers signals that Australian investors are looking further afield, reflecting an increased level of sophistication.
