Bloomberg, Wendy Allard, 28 June 2006

The following tables show the highest and lowest average analyst ratings for stocks in the Standard & Poor's/Toronto Stock Exchange Composite Index as of June 28.

Bloomberg assigns a number to each rating that ranges from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest recommendation. To calculate the average, these numbers are added together and the total is divided by how many recommendations were made during the past 12 months. The target price is the average of analysts' 6 - 18 months predicted price. Only companies that have at least four analyst ratings are included.
