"Wall Street investment firms employ thousands of analysts whose job is to issue reports and recommendations on specific stocks. These analysts typically look at the company's fundamentals and then build financial models in order to project future trends, most notably future earnings . They then use these projections as a basis for issuing recommendations on whether or not they think the stock should be bought or sold. Analyst recommendations vary from one firm to another, but usually they resemble something along the lines of "strong buy," "buy," "hold," and "sell." Many investors take these recommendations quite seriously, and you'll notice that often times when an analyst changes his or her outlook on a stock the price will rise or fall immediately."
