Research Capabilities

Stifel research focuses on all market caps, but is a leader in small- and mid-cap research.  The department is staffed predominantly with industry professionals from outside Wall Street.  In fact, many of its analysts have hands-on work experience in the industry that they research.  Stifel believes industry experience, its opportunistic approach, and broad market cap coverage drive excess returns and its award-winning franchise.

Stifel focuses on 12 sectors, covering more than 1,600 companies, and has the nation's largest U.S. equity research platform.
