Blue chip sells

Research from AJ Bell reveals the FTSE 100 companies which have attracted the biggest percentage of sell ratings at the start of this year.

The study carries greater significance this year, with Mifid II rules requiring fund firms to be transparent on how much they are paying for research.

The report was not a great endorsement for research as it also showed the 10 FTSE 100 firms with the most buy ratings at the start of 2017 delivered a combined loss of -9.3% last year. This compares with a gain for 9.5% for those with the most buys.  

'[What] The data [does seem] to show is the well-informed, diligent, expert broking community has little more idea of what is coming than anyone else, at least in the short term,' AJ Bell investment director Russ Mould said.

With that in mind, AJ Bell highlights the 10 blue chips which currently have the most sell ratings.
