By definition, equity research is the process of analyzing the current valuation of a publicly listed company (listed on stock exchanges like NYSE and NASDAQ) and reviewing the economic aspects like growth rates, GDP, market size and competition.
The role of equity research is to also provide information to the public. Research analysts use their expertise and spend a lot of time analyzing a particular stock, its industry and similar companies to provide potential earnings and valuation estimates. Quality Equity Research is invaluable because it fills potential information gaps so that an individual investor does not need to analyze every stock when deciding whether or not to invest.
