The first category of services in the field of investment research is equity research services. Just as the name suggests, “equity research” refers to the study of stocks and market conditions so that it helps investors to buy the right kind of equities. The decision that’s taken by a shareholder of either holding a bond or selling it is a very crucial one. It must be taken after studying in great detail about the various pros and cons of the investment. Making sound forecasts on the future bond values also plays a vital role in begetting promising results.
Before proceeding on the topic of equity research, let’s first get the meanings of the terms straight and clear. According to Investopedia, equity refers to “a stock or any other security representing an ownership interest.” On the other hand, equity research (according to Wiki) refers to “researching and analyzing equities, or stocks. These stocks trade on various stock markets such as the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, AMEX (which are the main U.S. stock markets) or foreign stock markets. Ten major industry sectors which deal with stocks are the consumer discretionary, consumer staples, energy, industrials, financials, healthcare, materials, information technology, telecommunication and utilities sectors.”
It is not very feasible for an individual person to carry out the entire procedure of equity research, which involves studying company status, clauses, products, management, market demand, economical trends etc. So, here comes the role of equity researchers. They keep in constant touch with various companies and businesses and collect all the necessary data. This data is in turn used by various corporate houses, brokers, agencies and individuals for a secured investment.
