FNArena Reporting Season Monitor: February 2020 - Week 2

Welcome to the FNArena Reporting Season Monitor for the February result season 2020. The Monitor reports ratings and consensus price target changes, along with brief summaries of the collective responses, from FNArena database brokers for each of 300+ stocks. The week two update is now available below, with coverage of the first 64 stocks to report so far.

Readers are reminded that it matters not what profit/loss result is posted by each company, but how much that result exceeded/fell short of stock analysts’ consensus forecasts.
