Investopedia: Statoil - Should You Love What The Analysts Hate?
The great thing about investing is that there's no one right way to make
money. Some investors do quite well surfing along with the crowd and
have the dexterity to get in or out just as the mood starts to shift.
Others succeed by boldly trusting their own analysis and going directly
against prevailing sentiment. Investors considering Norwegian oil and
gas company Statoil (NYSE:STO)
need to be more of that latter mindset. While Statoil has changed for
the better in some significant ways over a relatively short time period,
the company is hardly a darling on the Street.
