Analyst ratings can sometimes be complicated, and we here at ETF Channel have noticed a bit of a paradox with Resource Capital Corp ( RSO).

That's a whopping 18.13% above where RSO has been trading recently at $9.47/share. With this kind of capital gain potential (should RSO reach that price target), one might expect to see a high concentration of "buy" or even "strong buy" ratings on the stock.
