How Do Companies Influence Their Stock Prices? A Wall Street Perspective

Discover the truth about how professional investors and analysts evaluate companies and value stocks—they don't go easy—and what your company can do to ensure its stock is fairly valued and it can raise the capital it deserves.

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Have you ever thought, “they just don’t get it” when someone from Wall Street comments on your company? Do investors fail to understand your company’s potential and competitive pressures? Do you believe your company’s stock is undervalued? You may be right. Then again, maybe not…

Join us for an evening with a former sell-side stock analyst and learn the sometimes-surprising truth about:

  • How professional investors evaluate companies and stocks,
  • Factors that influence stock ratings and which stocks get sell-side coverage, and
  • What your company can do to ensure its stock is fairly valued and it is able to raise the capital it deserves, including what company action increased valuation multiples on NASDAQ stocks by a mean of 29.6% in a Wharton/Harvard study.
