Sandler O’Neill publishes in-depth equity research on approximately 200 financial services companies. Our analysts cover small-, mid- and large-cap banks and thrifts; specialty finance, asset management, credit card and eFinance companies; investment banks and insurers.
__ We also publish frequent special reports on regional trends, industry consolidation, mutual-to-stock conversions, and other topics. Our research is especially valuable to smaller issuers that are not widely followed by “bulge bracket” Wall Street firms. Those issuers often have sufficient trading volume to attract institutional interest, yet lack quality coverage. We track larger issuers as well, providing fresh perspectives, independent thinking and deep industry knowledge.
