Analyst Reports

The Value of Analyst Reports

Investment/brokerage/securities houses, asset management companies and other investment managers may issue analyst reports on individual companies or industries.

Analyst reports are generally written to offer guidance to investors as to whether to invest in specific companies or industry sectors.

Reports may focus on recent financials and their expected share price movements. Valuable insights are provided when analysts write about the current and future outlook for the state of the industry, based not only on financials, but on interviews with top management, a review of peer performance and macro/micro economic indicators, among other inputs.

Several library databases provide industry and/or company analyst reports from different providers.
