Firm Description:
Argus Research is an independent research firm, and our business is producing, distributing and marketing high-quality investment and economic research. Our recommendations - BUY, HOLD and SELL - reflect the judgment of an analyst about a company's prospects as an investment in terms of value, expected growth and risks. Argus Research does not bring companies public, advise companies on mergers and acquisitions, broker trades, make markets in stocks or manage money. Our independence allows us to make critical judgments about companies that we might not be so free to make were we competing for a firm's underwriting business. Because we're not a broker/dealer, we don't have "inventory" of a stock that we have to move with a tainted recommendation.
We have developed a six-point system for analyzing stocks over the nearly 70 years we have been in business. This system, combined with our independence, gives us an edge as we develop our ideas, forecasts and ratings. The system, a blend of top-down and bottom-up analysis, begins with Industry Analysis. Growth Analysis is the second step in the process, followed by Financial Strength Analysis. The fourth step is a qualitative Management Assessment, while Risk Analysis is the fifth step. Finally, we determine a fundamental floor for every stock in our universe through our Valuation Analysis.
A company in the Argus Universe can be designated a SELL for not passing any of the steps. Most often, stocks rated SELL are either fully valued, face extraordinary risks, or are in an industry that is expected to underperform the broad market.
