The Goldman Small Cap Research model is based upon the unearthing and highlighting exciting small cap and micro cap companies. Our approach is executed through our 2 formats: Select and Opportunity Research.
Few investment bank research departments cover small cap and micro cap companies unless they have an existing corporate finance relationship or coverage in a specific industry segment. This has resulted in literally thousands of “orphaned” stocks currently trading in U.S. markets, with no coverage and/or and little investor awareness. One quip on Wall Street is that many of these stocks “trade by appointment.”
Enter Goldman Small Cap Research.
Via our Select format, we introduce internally-driven research ideas that offer meaningful upside with limited downside risk via our Market Monitor blogs, The Goldman Guide newsletter and especially through The 30-30 Report. By incorporating criteria and fundamental and technical analysis strategies used by Rob Goldman as a mutual fund and small cap money manager, our subscribers have are introduced to stocks that cater to small cap investors as well as day traders.
In our sponsored research format, Opportunity Research, we seek to enhance the limited visibility that hampers companies’ abilities to increase the value of their firms via financings, M&A, or other transactions. Existing shareholders have access to limited information on company progress and potential investors may never find out about a Firm’s exciting prospects, and therefore never invest in a potentially undervalued stock.
Interestingly, even those middle market investment banks that do cover these firms on a research basis recommend that their clients seek out our Firm to engage in research production and distribution, due to our extensive reach and history of success. As a result, Goldman Small Cap Research seeks to release the handcuffs on these firms and inform small cap investors about underfollowed, and often undervalued stocks through the production of research reports, updates, alerts, and snapshots.
