Rather than focussing just on the calls, the scope of this survey should have been broadened to collate what local/regional institutional investors think about the guidance & insight that they have received from these real estate analysts on investors' stock investments within the sector and which analyst's advice/analysis can these investors consistently rely upon (see Institutional Investor ranking). Sometimes trend becomes a friend and calling a buy or sell on any sector is a relatively easier job vs. what's difficult is to have solid thought & a well-argumented thesis that in most investors' view forms the real job of an analyst. If the survey was done on these parameters, I am quite sure the results then would have been significantly different from what has been presented. But thanks for your effort on this survey in any case.
