Financial statements are supposed to tell the story about how the company performed. But in reality, they do not.

As a top investment research firm, we know that you need comprehensive information you can understand. Our goal is to help you make smart investment decisions by digging deeper into the numbers.

We publish unique investment research and offer a suite of portfolio management tools so you can build, manage and grow your assets. Together, we can improve your odds of success as we set the new standard for Investment Research.

We are the only Investment Research provider with a United States Patent for a system and method to reverse accounting distortion and analyze financial information to automatically determine the true profitability of a company, making us one of the top investment research firms in the nation.

Why You Need a New Kind of Investment Research

We all want to find the best stock research website, but what exactly does that mean? To us, it’s finding the information others often overlook.

Companies are required to disclose the potential impact of adopting new accounting regulations. Unfortunately, the disclosures are filled with legal jargon that may be difficult to find and impossible to translate.

This important information is often buried (legally) in the footnotes.

Finding and then understanding accounting disclosures gives you the ability to recognize early warning signs that can prevent poor decisions. Free or “boiler plate” investment research makes little effort to search and interpret the footnotes of items that may change your view of the company.

With the top investment research, we can help you find the information that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.  We are an independent research firm which means our loyalty is to you, the investor. Together we can raise your odds of success with the new standard of investment research.

In 1997, Mr. Trainer developed and managed the Value Dynamics Framework project, a separate business for CSFB across three continents.

In 1999, Mr. Trainer transitioned these skills into equity research coverage of the financial services sector for CSFB where he applied value-based analysis to consumer finance, asset management and broker-dealer firms and developed a proprietary framework that linked customer satisfaction to the valuation of credit card companies.
