Analysts and Journalists

I had earlier written the following two posts on analysts….1) Analysts and film critics 2)Analysts are like actors… continuing the trend… in this post i speak about how analysts are more like journalists.
Well for starters… what’s the job description of a journalist?? Fact finding, reporting and analysis are the 3 main tasks a journalist performs…. ditto for analysts. The difference lies in the treatment given to the facts. Analysts, doing justice to their title, do some analysis which at times involves number crunching and result interpretation. They then take it forward by giving such information to the market which they need or will need to value a business decision.
