About

Granite Research produces and distributes investment research analysis on publicly traded companies designed for institutional investors. We perform in-depth research and analysis to identify investment opportunities and catalysts that we expect to generate shareholder value. Research reports and analysis are designed to provide professional investors with the information they expect in order to make informed investment decisions. Companies under our research coverage are typically underfollowed and undervalued but have established economic niches and attractive competitive positions. Our research focuses on the enterprise’s underlying fundamental characteristics and long-term value rather than short-term earnings forecasts.

Granite Research’s analysts are experienced financial professionals who understand the need for objective research and have adopted written ethical standards for independence and mitigating conflicts of interest. Granite Research’s employees and independent contractors do not perform investor relations, investment banking, or consulting services, which can drive ancillary fees and potentially impact objectivity.
