17th Feb by Ben Hobson

Trading recommendations from company analysts can offer a glimpse of what the experts think the future holds. Their 'buy', 'hold' and 'sell' ratings reflect their views about the likely future performance of the stocks they cover - and how the share prices will move as a result. 

For investors, these kinds of 'smart money' signals can be a useful consideration when it comes to deciding whether to buy or sell a stock...

Take Anglo American (LON:AAL) as an example. Shares in the company have risen by 5.82% over the past month and they are currently trading at 2828. But what do the analysts that cover the company think?

Based on the broker 'consensus', there could be reasons to believe that the positive recent trend will continue. In terms of trading recommendations, Anglo American currently has:

  • 5 Buy recommendations
