Why You Need Independent Research Coverage
We have recognized independent investment research as an opportunity...both for small cap companies and investors. Small Cap Companies do not generate the level of investment banking or brokerage business which draws the interest of the Wall Street research departments, who make the lions share of profits by banking and brokerage business. Small Cap Companies are historically at a major disadvantage in attracting investors without an analysts' research coverage. Because of this, the stock market prices of small cap companies are often significantly below their true intrinsic value and are many times below the relative valuation of their analyst-covered competitors. The amount of this discount attributable to lack of analyst coverage, is very significant and is thought to range from 50%-75%. The bottom line is that, many institutional and individual investors will not invest in companies lacking independent third-party research coverage.
We offer a year-long program of research coverage which includes four reports to be issued. This enables under-followed companies to gain a thorough, independent analysis of their competitive position, along with independently developed earnings and valuation models that otherwise would not be available to interested investors and institutions. Our research is used by investment banking firms, institutions, and individual investors to obtain independent company equity research. Our research estimates are included in the major consensus estimates - Reuters, Thomson's, First Call and Yahoo Finance.
