(Written by Rebecca Lipman, list compiled by Eben Esterhuizen, CFAShort and EPS data from Yahoo! Finance)

A sell side analyst produces detailed research that is circulated to broker clients for investment considerations. When research is distributed from a reliable analyst it can prove influential in changing investors’ perceptions and driving share prices.

Researchers often cover a specific industry or sub-sector in order to become experts in their field. Their advanced knowledge helps them to utilize complex forecast models and ultimately deliver recommendations on stocks or other securities.

The recommendations are typically phrased as “buy,” “sell,” or “hold.”
