In the age of streaming stock quotes, after-hours trading
and 24-hour financial news coverage,
many Wall Street analysts have become stars.
From Merrill Lynch's Henry Blodget to
Anthony Noto of Goldman Sachs, stock analysts have
become household names and financial power brokers.

But are they too powerful? Some critics think so, including
many who believe that stock analysts played a major role in
creating and then bursting the technology bubble. But others
say a world without stock analysts would be fraught
with even more uncertainty.

Like executives of corporations, analysts should be fined or jailed when they steer stocks lower with their personal opinions. They are that powerful. I've noticed lately they can power stocks downward but seem to have little support from the buyers to make stocks move up. Analysts are becoming too pompous and should be regulated. The Feds might think of not letting analysts affiliated with a brokerage house give their views.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
