Broad Scope, Deep Coverage 

Raymond James’ equity research is a cornerstone of the organization.  Raymond James employs approximately 70 research analysts who cover nearly 1,200 companies in nine highly focused industries: Consumer, Energy, Financial Services, Healthcare, Industrial, Mining & Natural Resources, Real Estate, Technology & Communications, and Transportation. We are a top provider of equity research in North America in terms of companies covered.

Our research analysts and their teams seek attractive niches within broader industries and then cover these sectors deeply to develop differentiated sector expertise and relationships.  While our focus is middle- and small-capitalization companies, our go deep philosophy typically results in our coverage of large, medium, and small companies across each sector; overall about one-third of our global coverage universe is large cap companies. 

We believe our research philosophy is further distinguished by our supply chain approach.  Many of our analysts and industry groups have constructed coverage universes that include the complete supply chain for that industry:  key suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors.  Analysts also collaborate to produce supply chain surveys, reports, and industry updates designed to help investors “connect the dots” in key industries and across national borders. 

Finally, to help our clients place this wealth of fundamental data into perspective, we also provide access to the latest market and economic commentary from our firm’s top internal experts, including our chief economist, our investment strategist, our Equity Portfolio & Technical Strategy team, and our Washington Policy team.

Technology, small-cap, and mid-cap securities generally involve greater risks.
