When it comes to researching shares, many investors take note of what city analysts have to say. The trading recommendations of these professionals are used by everyone from institutional fund managers to individual private investors. The reason is that these analysts know about the stocks they cover more than just about anybody else.

For investors, these kinds of recommendations can be a useful consideration - especially when you listen to the consensus view of all the analysts that cover a stock.

Take Aviva (LON:AV.) as an example. Shares in the company have risen by 1.36% over the past month and they are currently trading at 417.7p. But what do the analysts that cover the company think?
