Hi all, And it's not just stock-picking : I'm a fan of the late Hans Rosling, author of the posthumous best-seller ' Factfulness'. Basic premise is that the world IS getting better - but the 'experts' usually don't know it. He asks a series of questions about the state of the world - pollution, population growth, life and income expectancy etc - and the average audience scores badly.....better than Nobel scientists, but not as well as randomly-chosen chimpanzees... Humbling and enlightening ! ATB

Hi sf5,Wasn't really mocking tbh, just trying to enlighten a certain individual that brokers forecasts are basically not very good. Yep dartboard, a pet (believe a dog was used in Russia), a monkey with a pin, etc etc., have all proven at times to be better than analysts.All the bestDD

Don't mock, DD4. I once worked with a very bright actuary who selected shares for his PEP (forerunner of the ISA) using a literal dartboard approach, though he delegated the throwing to his young son. Obviously the Efficient Market Hypothesis will rank a dartboard approach as good as any other, arguing that all available information is in the current price.....

Same theme, from Sharescope:"Yet evidence shows that even short-term forecasting can be very wide of the mark.Back in 2013, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) decided to look into just how good the predictions of experts had been in practice. Not good is the answer. Its study involved a very simple exercise. Predicted annual returns for the S&P 500 index were pinned to a dartboard and darts thrown at it. Over half the time the prediction of the darts would have done better than Wall Street experts. The same could be said for just assuming the average long term return of the index would be repeated in the future."Christh would be better off getting a dart board.......no doubt I will get a mouthful in response, oh well.Have a good one.

Hi VillaStill having fun I see! Lol.Given a certain friend of yours on here relies solely on broker recommendations I thought it would be useful to find out how accurate they are.Obviously cannot find any research on accuracy of their share price forecasts because the tinkers never give a timeframe for their forecasts. That said did find an article that gives how accurate they have been over the last three months in terms of their Buy and Sell recommendations and how the companies faired against FTSE.Basically on average they only called 50% of their Buy's correct but were better at Sells with 68%. So the moral of the story, DYOR and you will IMO not do any worse!. HTTPS://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/broker-views/performanceDD

More BOO-bashing on BBC radio 4 news this morning. Full minute claiming, shock horror, that a 'faux fur' jumper might in fact have contained hair (not fur) from a real animal eg rabbit. For heaven's sake - what a farce this national broadcaster has become!
