A consensus recommendation for an individual stock compiles ratings from a number of analysts who track that stock. The recommendation is expressed as a median of the separate recommendations. ↵

A consensus recommendation provides a snapshot of current thinking about a stock, so it can serve as a benchmark against which you can compare a single analyst's opinion to gauge how mainstream it is. While recommendations aren't that useful in themselves, the change in recommendation is a powerful indicator - the direction of change being most important.
