Abstract

El principal objetivo de este trabajo es estimar el grado de precisión que tiene los analistas de títulos accionarios en Chile. El estudio busca mostrar evidencia acerca de una directa relación entre el grado de precisión de los analistas y la presencia de retornos anormales en el dÌa del mundo de un nuevo precio objetivo (PO). Los principales resultados reflejan que los analistas no poseen un grado de precisión elevado. solo el 26.2% de los POs lanzados al mercado fueron exitosos. Además, se encuentra evidencia de retornos anormales en el dÌa del anuncio de un nuevo PO cuando este sorprende al mercado.
