The mission of Oppenheimer’s Equity Research department is to provide thoughtful, insightful and differentiated research so that our clients can make informed investment decisions. We consist of 37 senior research analysts covering approximately 550 companies across all of the major investing sectors. Our coverage encompasses roughly 50% of the S&P 500 by market cap, and is evenly balanced among large-, mid-, and small-cap companies. As a result, Oppenheimer Equity Research continues to be an important product for our retail, institutional, and corporate clients.
Our Special Situations Team looks for spin-offs, post-bankruptcy equities, restructurings and management changes.
