http://www.standpointresearch.comStandpoint Research provides independent equity research that is free from the conflicts of asset management, investment banking, proprietary trading, and fee-for-research arrangements. We provide thorough analysis, diagnostics and forecasts on domestic and international equities and markets backed by alpha-generating variables back-tested on many years of data. Standpoint Research currently advises and sells its research to pension funds, hedge funds and asset management firms. Wall Street analysts have an optimistic bias, while we are more objective. In fact some of the variables in our model that are looked at as positives by Wall Street actually carry negative weight in our model. We have a strict discipline that includes running our proprietary 155-variable valuation and diagnostics model with a personal and subjective overlay that has been proven to add value. The effectiveness is demonstrated through our impressive six-year track record of more than 300 recommendations.
