Analyst Price Target for AVB

i We calculate consensus analyst ratings for stocks using the most recent rating from each Wall Street analyst that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Each analyst's rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts.

Our consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months. Our consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
