It is a well-documented fact that the equity market is not easy to grasp. This is because of the complexities and uncertainties associated with the investment world. However, investors shelling out their hard-earned money into the stock market would always look forward to raking in handsome profits. Understandably, the task of designing a winning portfolio of stocks is anything but a cakewalk for individual investors in absence of proper knowhow.
The complexities associated with the stock market apart, the paucity of time available makes it next to impossible for investors to keep track of market movements to identify the opportune moment(s) for buying or offloading a particular stock to maximize returns. Therefore, guidance from proper channels is a must.
Time for Some Broker Advice
The requisite guidance to build a lucrative portfolio comes from brokers. Brokers invest a lot of time in researching stocks under their coverage. Such investment specialists attend conference calls, company presentations and also interact with the management.
Brokers revise their earnings estimates after carefully examining the pros and cons of an event for the concerned stock. Naturally, their stock-related actions (upgrade or downgrade) serve as an invaluable guide as far as fixing the target price of stock (s) is concerned. Given their thorough understanding of the stock market as highlighted in this write-up, it is prudent for investors to pay heed to broker advice to plan a promising portfolio.
Of the three types of brokers (sell-side, buy-side and independent) present, sell-side analysts are the most common. They are employed by various brokerage firms to provide an unbiased opinion on stocks. Meanwhile, buy-side analysts are employed by hedge funds, mutual funds and others while independent analysts directly sell their reports to investors.
