The week ending Friday, 8th December 2017 marked an event not often seen in Australia in 2017: stockbroking analysts issued more upgrades than downgrades for individual ASX-listed stocks.

The tables for revisions to earnings forecasts show that positive adjustments continue to outnumber negative revisions. Western Areas and Aristocrat Leisure stand out with gains in excess of 45% and 30% respectively, at considerable distance followed by Independence Group, Spotless (yes, still listed) and Metcash.

Amongst those suffering downgrades to growth forecasts, G8 Education is leading the pack, followed by Telstra, Fletcher Building and AWE ltd.
