    Default Questions: chart & ratings stuff

    newbie standing ready for your answers lol. can someone please unconfuse me - when an analyst rates a stock as 'outperform' or 'underperform' what is it they actually mean? i would have thought that 'outperform' meant that the price of a stock was overpriced but i see this rating when others are rating the stock as buy so i'm confused . also when looking at a chart what is the 'bolinger band' or the 'donchain channel' ???
