Biography:

Kyle Thompson, MBA founded Leetown Advisors in 2017 as a response to low industry standards with regard to customer service and innovation. Kyle grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and became obsessed with finance as a teen. He went to see an advisor one summer after his first undergraduate internship, but was turned away due to not meeting the advisor's asset minimums. Though he wouldn't enter the industry for several more years, it was an experience he would never forget.

Shortly after finishing his MBA at Iowa State University, Kyle founded Leetown as a means to service clients with no prejudice to age, wealth, or any other metric typically used by the industry.

In his free time, Kyle enjoys reading, writing, and helping others. He volunteers or sits on the board of several local community organizations, and his greatest hope is to leave the world a better place than he found it, and to help others do the same.

    Investing, Stocks
Why do analysts decide on a target price for a stock that is lower than its current price?
43% of people found this answer helpful

The short answer is that the analyst believes the stock is overvalued, and the lower price target better reflects the company's future earnings potential. A stock's price is the sum of all future earnings, discounted back to the present with a discount rate that reflects the risk (uncertainty) associated with the investment. The higher the discount rate, the lower the current price "target". High risk investments require high returns to justify the risk, and are discounted at a higher rate. Therefore, an analyst that sets a price target lower than the market believes that the market is using a discount rate that is too low. Hope this helps!
