Companies smashing broker forecasts

Companies' smashing broker forecasts are almost certain to enjoy strong share price rises. Keeping an eye on upgrades and downgrades in consensus forecasts can help provide ideas for your next investment.

Comparisons are made between forecasts for the same 12 month period, which run from the date given on the table. The tables are ordered by largest to smallest one month revisions.
