Most companies in the U.S. asset management and broker/dealer sectors were trading below analyst targets as of Aug. 30, with five trading 30% or more below analysts' mean one-year price targets and another 17 trading at least 20% below targets. Overall, stocks in the sector carried an 18.0% median upside to price target, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence data.

Asset manager Ashford Inc. easily carried the largest implied upside in the industry, at 206.3%. The company’s shares were down 72.6% for the year ended Aug. 30, and all analysts covering the stock had a buy recommendation.
