Crowdsourced price predictions for the stock market.

The Crowd and The Crash

The Crowd
and The Crash

Can we call it a crash? The market {DJ IA} closed less than
two percent down compared to last week and opened 58 points down this morning.
Nothing compared with 2008/09.  

The Crowd at had some amazing predictions by
individual stock pickers and if you become a Vetr User (Join at or
Vetrer you should consider watching these smart investors. Although they only
have one stock rated with us, not something we would recommend, they have done
very well over the past five turbulent days.  Here is a list of our top five Crowd performers:

“@Abba457” used this volatile ETF XIV Credit Suisse AG to
make a staggering 40.26% return over the volatile five day scare or “not so
flash crash”. This far outstripped any of the analysts that we cover.

Coming in second in the Crowd was” @takeoverlease” with an impressive
23.78% return betting the ranch on DUST- Gold Miners Bear 3X Direxion, again
not that we would recommend one bet but worth watching.

“@Kipstur” who doubled the number to two predictions on
Vanguard Natural Resources LLC and EPD Enterprise Products Partners LP and
clearly enjoys warm climates, came in at an impressive 13.99% return.

“@Eleutron2” having again bet the ranch on one prediction,
this time on the more popular AMZN rocked the market with a 12.86% return.

Fifth and final this report and “@bklyncamille”, who again
like all our top five has a much larger Watchlist was only betting on one pony
romped home with a 12.07% return.

Viagra for Women

Valeant is buying Sprout Pharma, the company that has been given the go ahead for a drug that increases women’s libido.

The Vetr crowd already has their stock predicted at $279.50 while the analysts are at a sell on this. Perhaps Sprout could could share some of it’s compound with this Wall Street community.

Crowd cautious, Analysts Bullish

Just when the airline industry was having a good year things seem to be taking a nasty turn. The WSJ reports that two of the major players Southwest and Delta have had employee contracts declined and that “A decline in ticket prices has hurt the companies’ unit revenue, which measures the amount of money taken from each passenger flown a mile”.

This has become the key metric for the investors. At, our crowd is less bullish than the analysts with all the major players $AAL $DAL $LUV $UAL    

Vetr Blog August 13th Citi and Apple

The Crowd at Vetr has always been a little jaundiced of the
bank stocks as they don’t see that much innovation in the sector and harbor
feelings from 2008, so they believe that $56.90 is a fair price for C. The
Analysts are looking much more bullish at $64.27 which would be huge pat on the
back for present management, with C’s bad bank now coming good could the
analyst’s be correct for a change.

Merrill Lynch analysts have changed their rating to agree
with The Crowd at Last week the analysts downgraded their rating down
from $142 to $130 just below’s crowd at $133.33. The crowd here feels that
the watch is a bust or just not taking off as quickly as it could have. Was it
a PR blunder to launch the $10K version so quickly?

The Crowd at is still bullish on #yhoo as we
believe that they still have a great story and can do a lot with an aggregate
prediction of $39.79. This compares to the analyst price of $53.81 at the time
of writing. Considering the reports today of the Baba share price in The WSJ it
would seem that the crowd is more likely correct. This is also reflected with
the Baba price as well. Crowd coming in at a modest bull on $83.87 compared to
the analyst at $107.49
