Why not B?

Why is B not a feasible answer, considering the text does state "analysts would stand to gain if this were true." Thanks in advance!

@santzoulis Good question. We know that the analysts would benefit from their prediction coming true, but not necessarily from just making the prediction. B suggests that they make the prediction because making it will benefit them. ("Suggesting the analysts present it for self-serving reasons.") It's a subtle but important difference!
