Over on StockTwits, here’s an example of what they’re saying about MSFT:

    $MSFT $AAPL $GOOG $AMZN $FB | Where are all of those "analysts" with their price target?! None of them has the gut to come out and reiterate their calls… Their works are garbage – my guess is that they pumped the stocks and sold them after they announced their upgrades!

    It is time for these Analysts should be held accountable for their actions.

    At some points, investors should just ignore Analysts, but they can't because these Analysts work for large bank or financial institutions that are allowed to trade with their client money.
