Research notes can play a key role in an investors decision whether to invest (or NOT) in your AIM quoted company.
Research is generally commissioned to offer an independent review of your companies’ performance over a long or short period. The note will rarely offer a specific recommendation, rather than spell out the facts and key drivers that would influence a potential investor to make the decision to invest in your company. Analysts will often look back and inevitably forward, speculating as to how your company is expected to perform over the next financial period. Research comprises of a variety of publications from single page ‘bulletins’ that respond to a significant company event or change, through to larger multi-page pieces that respond to the R&As or AGM.
This valuable research is distributed to brokers and released on the investor relations part of your website for investors.
Key to good research, is good analysts. You require analysts that understand your sector and the competition in your market territory.
Good research comes from a research house that really ‘knows’ your company, and the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ is generally true.
There are a large variety of Research Houses in the market place from small to large teams, both can offer very high quality research so don’t always assume bigger is better, quite often the smaller teams will be closer to the market, be more dedicated and/or specialist.
