Advice for my first research report?
Hi guys, I currently am a CFA level 2 Candidate with experience in consulting.
I am very keen on getting into Equity Research. So I thought of learning by perhaps attempting to write research reports on my own. This could even look good in my job applications.
Now I know as a beginner and a retail investor, I have access to very limited resources but wish to make the most use of these.
I would be really grateful if anyone could help me with the following two queries I have.
- Firstly, I am quite familiar with financial modelling but I have only done it for private companies after in-depth discussion with their management. Calculating the intrinsic value of the stocks I wish to cover through forecasting would be a different ball game altogether for a retail investor like me with limited resources. Has anyone been on the same boat as me? Or anyone who would like to give me any sort of tips regarding the same?
- I am trying to read as much as possible on the companies I wish to cover but is there any other place I can get authentic information regarding the companies apart from the documents they publish themselves?
