Analyst recommends....well, another analyst

It's not often you see an analyst organisation praising one of its competitors.

So imagine my delight recently when a colleague pointed out that a major Boston-based firm was being cited positively in the daily newsletter put out by one of its rivals.

Is there some sort of analyst-loving going on here that we need to be told about?

More likely, we think, it was just a good old fashioned 'cut and paste' botch-up. I hesitate to accuse - but parts of the the story apparently read just like a vendor press release...
