That certainly looks interesting!

That was RWE, but a number have the new feature


That looks great!

There could be some more on the way too, I’d like to see how this sentiment has changed over time.

Small point, but I notice RWE is based on 22 analysts ratings whereas the first chart was based on 26…


They will only be able to share when an analyst has reported a rating, not all analysts will provide ratings for every share.


Funny thing is RWE has plummeted since this graph above was shown😂

Seems like the €34 guys were the ones to listen too

Hi everyone :wave:

From today, we’re rolling out the latest stock fundamentals update to Standard and Plus members on iOS: price targets :chart_with_upwards_trend:

Price targets are the price that analysts believe represent a fair value for the company. Usually the target is set with a one-year time horizon, but this can vary depending on the methodology used by the analyst.

It’s just another way of giving you more information to help with your investment research.

We are gradually rolling out this feature on iOS to Standard and Plus members over the next week, with Android to follow. Those using iOS can also download the update directly from the App Store. Let us know what you think below.

Next stop: dividend events :date:

Not a Standard or Plus member yet? See how our plans compare. Upgrade to access price targets, analyst ratings, our full range of stocks, interest on cash balances and more.

When you invest your capital is at risk, the value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than what you invest. Make sure you do your own research on what investments are right for you before investing or consider seeking expert advice.


I was just thinking about this the other day and how it would be nice to have a small mark on stocks on the main screen who are past ex div for example. HL does something similar but it’s not the most modern implementation

Gives immediate glance on your stocks which are past the event without haven’t unnecessary clicks.

Similar with spark lines to eliminate unnecessary clicks which I hope we might see in the future :crossed_fingers:

I saw the new feature last week pop up. It’s a very welcome addition


Really glad to see Freetrade rolling app improvements out. But i have to be honest that Price Target thing looks really messy and dont visually really make any sense. I really like what you did with analyst ratings. It looks clean and i can see straight away whats going on even without looking at the numbers.

I wish you would have stick to similar theme. Or have sort of cross between That and Simply Wall Street, maybe slimmed down version. Hope that makes sense.


Firstly I wanted to say that app improvements are very welcome and the more information to help educated users and decisions the better. However, I haven’t been able to put my finger on what I I feel look a bit cluttered. I’m not sure I like the dashed line, it doesn’t feature anywhere else in the app. I also think the purple number for the current price looks a bit weak. The colours from the RAG should be used in the price targets for consistency too.

I guess it could be tinkered with but I happen to agree with @Jurgenson - the simply Wall Street graphic is punchy, clean and very quick to get the information across.

I miss the days when you’d beta test new features on the community.


Simply Wall Street would be a good acquisition for Freetrade. Intergrate their graphics into the app. They have over 5 million users world wide although I think they are based in Australia.

The bar chart from Simply Wall Street shows their own Fair Value assessment. Their visualisation of the analyst price target is a much more sophisticated version of what Freetrade has produced. The current price and low, high and average price targets are shown in a similar triangle to the right of their graph. However Simply Wall Street also show the past price graph in blue and the past average price target graph in purple. In Snowflake’s case the analysts have been wrong for almost all of the last year…!

That is a misunderstanding/misinterpretation of what the analysts are trying to achieve. Fundamentally, they are not forecasting the share price. They are setting fair value targets. The discrepancy between different analysts should give you a strong clue that “fair value” comes with baggage. But that baggage is often the interesting part of understanding the company business.

IMO: Take analyst targets as guides. Use them to explore the company more. It is important to understand that analysts produce detailed reports on companies … i.e. their view on a company is more than a single number. Take the variation in ‘targets’ as a measure of ‘uncertainty’ in valuing the business. There is a political and vested edge to price targets. Try to figure out what these might be.


If the analysts aren’t trying to forecast the share price then Simply Wall Street’s visualisation is pretty misleading! It makes it really easy to compare what the past targets and the past prices were.

Using the targets as a guide makes sense and I suppose that’s what Simply Wall Street’s checkmark boils things down to. They award a tick if the average price target is 20% higher than the current price and the variation between price targets is less than 15%.
