Drexel Hamilton began its equity research practice in 2011 and is in the process of growing this business to provide value-added equity research across all market capitalizations for U.S. equities. As the firm grows, we have focused our research coverage on the Aerospace & Defense and the Technology sectors.
Our research is distinguished by several factors. The first and foremost factor is our reliance on industry veteran research analysts who each have at least a decade of experience covering their sector and have won numerous research awards, such as top rankings within the Forbes and Wall Street Journal research rankings. Each of our analysts has developed extensive relationships with professionals within their industries, as well as close contacts within the investor community. This puts them at the nexus of actionable information on market moving trends.
Secondly, we attempt to add value to the investor decision making process by uncovering new, relevant data points through frequent visits to view the operations of the companies we cover, discussions with leaders in the sectors and our own channel checks.
Additionally, we pride ourselves in our research independence and have adopted the CFA Institute’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct to guide our own behavior. We believe that we offer investors one of the most balanced research recommendation lists with a willingness to assign buy, sell, or hold ratings to stocks under coverage, as warranted.
We believe that the approach of hiring veteran analysts, giving them a mandate to uncover valuable, incremental information, and allowing them free reign to make the correct investment call allows us to add value and set us apart from many of our competitors.
Our research is distributed via all major market data platforms, including S&P Capital IQ, Bloomberg, FactSet and Thomson Reuters, as well as DrexelHamilton.com. Clients can also receive our research directly from their Drexel Hamilton representative via email.
