Talent to Predict What Has Already Happened.

The graph below is taken from Montier’s 2002 study. It shows evidence of returns compared with the average forecast of analysts (the so-called “consensus forecast”). Analysts as a group, change their opinions regarding the dynamics of returns only when the changes have already occurred. Lag time when the analysts “came around” is distinctly seen, starting from the time indicated by the oval. Morals in a bull market: “Don’t confuse brains with a bull market”.

Талант предсказывать то, что уже произошло.

График ниже взят из исследования Монтьера 2002 года. Он показывает фактические данные по прибыли в сравнении со средним прогнозом аналитиков (так называемый “консенсус-прогноз”). Аналитики, как группа, меняют свои мнения о динамике прибыли лишь тогда, когда изменения уже произошли. Лаг времени, когда аналитики “очнулись”, четко прослеживается, считая от времени, обозначенного овалом. Мораль на бычьем рынке: “Don’t confuse brains with a bull market”. Мораль на любом рынке: “Рассчитывай только на себя. Аналитиков слушать – себя не уважать”.
