Companies smashing brokers’ forecasts: week to 14 Oct

Every week as part of our Ideas Farm, we publish a list of London’s shares experiencing the biggest upgrades and downgrades in consensus forecasts.

Our upgrade and downgrade tables are based on changes made during the last month to consensus forecast earnings for the coming year. The tables are ordered by largest to smallest one-month revisions.
