Our research analysts are industry specialists with extensive knowledge and insight. Their unique industry perspectives are featured in this monthly series.

Organized by sector teams, analysts develop their own models with criteria relevant to their industries and sectors versus applying one common set of criteria to discern intrinsic value. In addition, most of our research is generated internally, insulating us from much of Wall Street’s white noise.
