We’ve just started a new blog/resource site over at www.sellsideanalyst.com which will contain a great deal of our analyst training materials, tools and commentary.
So most of our posts regarding the research process, the industry and “how to” will be going there going forward.
It’s been a project years in the making and an outlet for all the things we learned doing equity research at SoundView Technology Group (now gone) that can be passed on to the next generation of equity research analysts.
Sadly so much of what is going on now is no better than it was a decade ago.Â Lots of “research” that is merely commentary.Â Too much backward looking financial analysis.Â A fixation on P/E and price targets, events and quarterly reports.
There are many ways to learn the basics of financial analysis and capital markets but few, if any, ways to figure out how to put them all together in a superior fashion. Getting an MBA helps, getting a CFA helps, getting a series 7, 86 & 87 from the NASD helps but none of them provides a complete picture.
So for our Research 2.0 readers who are interested in such topics we recommend you hop over there and sign up for RSS or email updates as desired.
