If an investment just made me a multimillionaire, how do I find a good financial advisor? I also want to set up some kind of trust for the family.
Here’s an article from Money Talks News that will tell you what you need to know. If you like stuff like this, subscribe for free here.3 Questions You Must Ask When Seeking Honest Investment AdviceJust because someone is a financial adviser doesn't mean you can trust their advice. Here's how to find a professional you can count on.Click here to subscribe to our YouTube channel!For many of us, feeling confident in our financial decisions requires the help of a skilled and reliable adviser.A professional can help us create the path to our investment goals, whether that means generating immediate returns, providing college education for the kids, securing a comfortable retirement or all of the above.Here’s the challenge: There are more than 271,000 financial advisers in the United States, according to federal data, and not all are created equal. So, how do you choose one?First, think about what you expect to get out of a relationship with a financial adviser. Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson explains:“Are you looking for a certain type of return? Are you looking just for a monthly meeting? Are you trying to get an education about finances? Knowing what you want and saying it is going to keep you from being disappointed.”Next, get recommendations from friends, family and others you trust • particularly if they are in a similar stage of life, with similar financial needs. Your accountant or lawyer may be another good source for referrals, depending on their familiarity with your circumstances.Once you think you have some potential candidates, ask them these questions:1. What are you going to do for me?After giving a potential adviser information about your situation, turn the tables: Ask the adviser what exactly you can expect from him or her as a client.For example, certified financial planner Shomari Hearn, managing vice president at Palisades Hudson Financial Group, describes his approach with clients as holistic.“I’m going to look at your overall situation,” he told Money Talks News. “Not only looking at your investment portfolio, but taxes, estate planning, retirement planning.”2. How are you paid?Avoid advisers who have a financial incentive to focus on the offerings of particular firms or on specific investments. These are commission-based advisers, and they make money on products they sell to you. So, their advice may not be in your best interest.Stacy Johnson recommends choosing a fee-only adviser • meaning they charge an hourly rate • to eliminate potential conflicts of interest. You can find such an adviser through organizations like the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors and the Garrett Planning Network.In any case, make sure you are clear about what you are getting and how you are being charged.“No matter how they get paid, ask them how much it’s going to cost, so you know,” says Stacy.3. What are your credentials and disciplinary history?You don’t just want to ask this question • you want to verify it as well.If a professional claims a credential like the “certified financial planner” (CFP) designation, consult the online registry of the organization that offers the designation.For example, to confirm whether someone is a CFP, use the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards• “Verify a CFP Professional” tool.Other helpful tools include FINRA’s BrokerCheck and CFTC SmartCheck.BrokerCheck is a database maintained by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), a self-regulatory organization that oversees people and firms that sell securities like stocks and bonds.As FINRA describes it:“BrokerCheck helps you make informed choices about brokers and brokerage firms • and provides easy access to investment adviser information. • BrokerCheck gives you a snapshot of a broker’s employment history, regulatory actions and investment-related licensing information, arbitrations and complaints.”CFTC SmartCheck is offered by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which polices the derivatives markets. As the agency describes it:“CFTC SmartCheck gives you easy access to free tools to check the background of financial professionals and stay informed on the latest fraud schemes • directly from those who regulate financial professionals.”
What is important in choosing a financial advisor to invest your retirement money for you?
I meet with a couple referred by a friend.I look over their investment account statements invested by their current adviser.It looks like the wardrobe of my crazy uncle who bought everything on clearance sale. Let’s just say, it was fascinating.I ask, “What are your goals?”We discuss them.“Do you know why he developed this portfolio?”They have no clue.“Has he helped you plan for your future?”They look blankly at me.“How often do you meet or talk on the phone?”They try to figure out the last time.Unfortunately, that discussion happens way too common.And causes a lot of people to just try and do it themselves.Which you can. The tools are there.And you can blow yourself up if you don’t know what you’re doing. Unfortunately, most people figure that out afterwards.And are now applying to be a Walmart greeter to help their retirement.In building wealth, either become an expert or hire one. Novices are the food chain.So how do you hire an expert? What should you look for?What is the first meeting like? Does he ask questions about you and your dreams or try to sell you his special deluxe investments. Or even worse, his hot stock tip. Heaven help us.Will he help you plan your future? Or does he just want a quick sale? You want someone with a long term view not just a quick buck. You’re in it for the long term he should be too.How does he get paid? Commissions on the sale means he gets paid then moves on. Fees based on assets means you’re both on the same side of the table trying to grow your wealth.How often will you meet? Not less than once a year for a review. He should be available most days. If he’s spending more time on the golf course than taking care of his clients look further.What is his history? How long has he been in the business? Who has he worked with? Look up on line his records to see if he has issues. You want someone who’s an expert sure. Also, honest.How does he invest? Is it diversified professionally managed investments? Or just a laundry list based on who bought him lunch recently? What’s his performance in good and bad times.Will he give you referrals? Ask. Get a list. Call them. Ask how often they meet? How has he done? What is his service like? How have his investments performed? Do they like him?After all that trust your instincts. Do you feel comfortable with him? Do you trust him? Do you like him?If you can’t answer yes to all those move on. There are plenty. And some really good ones.And unfortunately some whose portfolios look like they were designed by my crazy uncle.Building wealth you need to become an expert or hire one. Novices are lunch.
How do I write a sell-side equity research report?
Let me try to answer your question more from a report layout perspective. I wrote a whole blog post that you can find here. I will paste that post below. Hope it helps!P.S.: if you are looking to break into equity research, I also provide guidance on how you can improve the strength of your job application. Check out my website: www.sellsideresearcher.com* * *One of the key tools of a sell side equity researcher is the research report. In it, the analyst and the associate convey their ideas, analysis and opinions about a company or a relevant event, such as their initial take about the company that they are about to initiate coverage on, or the results of a quarterly earnings release. It is through a series of different research reports that the analyst, with the help of the associate, communicates to internal and external clients his or her research (thesis, valuation, analysis, etc.) in a distribution process referred to as publishing.But how well do you understand the different components of a research report? What are the different types of reports? What is the structure, content and presentation of a typical research document? These are questions that every applicant for a job in sell side research should know well. And these were questions that my friends at the Michigan State University Student Investment Association wanted to explore in more detail. I want to thank them for suggesting this blog post.Reports vary in length and depth, generally depending on the research style of the analyst • more detailed or more high-level; more “directional” or more analytical; more anecdotal or more data-driven. However, research reports usually share some common features, and many of them contain at least some of the following components:Summary and Key Points: these are standard sections on the first page of most reports. Think of these as the short version of a book’s preface, or the teaser trailer of a movie. The summary is usually no longer than a paragraph of 8 to 12 lines, and is intended to preview the report’s main takeaways. For example, the summary may state that company XYZ reported earnings on the previous day, highlight the most important developments from the conference call, and explain how the analyst’s opinion about the company, stock rating and price target have changed as a result of that specific event • whether an earnings preview, review, coverage initiation, etc. (keep reading for more information on the different types of reports). The key points section, often times displayed in the form of 3 or 4 bullets of a few lines each, usually dives one level deeper into the arguments made in the summary paragraph.Thesis: is investing in the company a good or bad idea? What factors, macro or company-specific, make investing in this company appealing or unappealing? In this section, the analyst lays out, usually in a paragraph of a few sentences in length, the reasons why you should buy or sell a certain stock. Some theses, but not all of them, will include a price target for the stock and a rating (buy, hold or sell is an example of rating scale). A good thesis will generally include a catalyst of some sort, which is an event or series of events that should help to unlock the “potential” value that the analyst sees in the company • for example, the possibility of a certain sizable contract win that the market seems to be overlooking.Valuation: based on the research team’s analysis, what is the fair value of the company’s stock? How did the team arrive at that valuation, and how does it compare to the market value of that stock? The methods used for valuing a company will usually fall under two main categories: (a) relative valuation: for example, given that the average P/E of a group of stocks is 12x, what should the P/E of a certain company be? (b) intrinsic valuation: discounted cash flow (DCF) is the most commonly known, and it does not rely on a comparison of valuation multiples like P/E or EV/EBITDA.Company description: this is usually a straight-forward paragraph on what the company does, including some high-level information on the business model, geographical distribution of the company’s revenues, maybe the year in which the company was founded and the location of its headquarters.Industry analysis: this is the bird’s eye view of the sector in which the company operates. The industry analysis can address as broad a segment as “technology” in general, but it more often focuses on a sub-segment, such as “networking equipment”, or “semiconductors”. In this section, you will usually read about total addressable market (a.k.a. TAM) to describe the size of the market that the company is exposed to. You will deal with describing and analyzing secular trends, such as the projected growth in the adoption of vehicle telematics equipment over the course of the past 3 and the next 5 years. In many cases, the industry analysis will provide some of the fuel to support the investment thesis that the research team presented previously on the report.Financial analysis: this is where the research team describes the current state of the company’s financials, the recent trends and a projection of how the company may perform in the future. How healthy is the balance sheet (cash, debt, inventories)? How has it evolved over the past 3 years? What have been the trends in returns on investment (a.k.a. ROI) in the past several quarters? What do you expect average days outstanding to be through 2022. A good financials section will usually include a comparison of the company’s performance to that of other comparable companies in the sector. Doing so will usually help you tell a story about the company.Financial statements: this is the 3- to 4-page section where the research team publishes a snapshot of the financial model. It usually consists of an income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement, but sometimes also a “drivers” table (e.g. assumption for units sold, average price, etc.) and possibly a DCF schedule. It will normally capture historical data and projected results, usually 2 or 3 years out into the future.Risks: this is the section in which the researcher plays devil’s advocate, and anticipates some of the issues that may play out against his or her recommendation to buy or sell a stock. If the recommendation is bullish (buy the stock), a typical risk may be “scarcity of aluminum could push commodity prices higher, increasing raw material costs and pressuring the company’s margins”. If the recommendation is bearish (sell the stock), a risk might be “increased M&A activity may turn the company into an acquisition target and lift valuations from current levels”. Risks are usually a required section of a report, because it balances the view of the analyst with the flip side of the investment call, as mandated by FINRA.Now that we have looked at the different sections of a research report, let’s look at the different types of reports. They can be (loosely) grouped within a handful of categories. You may find it helpful to learn or brush up your knowledge about the general characteristic of each one of them.Initiations: this is usually one of the longest and most in-depth research reports that an analyst will ever write on a given company. It is often the very first report created, and marks the beginning of coverage on a company that he or she will follow. Initiation reports extend through as few as a half dozen pages and take a couple of weeks to research and compile. On the other end of the spectrum, some initiation notes can span over 100 pages and take a research team of multiple associates and analysts several weeks or months to complete. Initiations are so comprehensive that they may very well contain all of the components described above, from summary to risks without skipping any section. In my view, an initiation is the “purer” form of research in sell side, because it allows the reader to look at a company from a number of different angles in a more comprehensive way. It may be the only time the research team will review a 10-K and an S1 filing from beginning to end; hold several exclusive, one-on-one conference calls with the company’s management team; and lean over mounds of industry and company-specific data with a magnifying glass to come up with a sound investment thesis.Earnings previews: this kind of report contains the analyst’s take on a company’s upcoming quarterly earnings release, including his or her best estimate for what the company’s financial results (for example, revenues and EPS) may be in that specific quarter. It differs from initiations in a few key ways: first, it is usually a much shorter, less comprehensive report. Even though previews will likely have a standard paragraph or two on thesis and valuation, it will rarely go into more detail on those more fundamental discussions. Second, previews are usually more time-sensitive, or “perishable”, than initiations. As a result, most of the text on a preview note focuses on how the company may have performed in the previous 3 months and, at best, what that performance will likely mean to the overall investment thesis. The time horizon of previews tends to be much shorter, and its value declines or expires as soon as the company reports earnings. Not every research team, however, will publish previews. It will depend largely on the analyst’s habits and whether the research team thinks the report might add value to their clients, strengthen the relationship, help to establish authority, or generate trade or other sources of revenues to the sell side firm.Earnings reviews: these are some of the most well-known documents published by sell side researchers. These notes summarize the key facts disclosed in an earnings release. The content of reviews resembles what you may hear on CNBC during earnings season: a summary of the most important financial results and metrics, like EPS or number of subscribers, and how the results fare against what the Street expected them to be. These research notes are usually quick and to the point. They are usually factual, and are normally assembled within a few minutes or hours. They are the commodity notes: most research teams will issue them, and most of the content will be more standard than ground-breaking. In reality, few are the earnings reports that stand out amongst the crowd. I have always thought of reviews as more of a “check the box” type of report, one that will likely not give meaningful visibility to the researcher’s work, but will keep his or her work on the client’s radar screen.Deep-dives: these reports are generally produced and published between earnings season, around the end month 2 of a given quarter. Deep dive reports more closely resemble initiation reports, in which they deeper into the fundamentals of a company. They may also include more immediate, relevant short-term topics, such as the preliminary results of quarterly channel checks. Although deep dives can be time consuming, they are some of the most note-worthy research notes, and will usually generate a great deal of interest from clients.Flash notes: these reports are meant to capture special events, such as breaking news that are note-worthy, but may not require model or assumption revisions. An example of such an event may be the hiring of a new COO to fill in an empty spot left by the previous officer. The analyst may want to share the news and his or her opinions about the newly-hired COO, but may not want to expand much further beyond a couple-paragraph update. Flash notes are usually the most perishable of research reports, and will tend to lose their relevance within hours or days after publishing. For this reason, flash notes are usually short, hardly ever extending beyond one page. While it is important for you to acknowledge the existence of flash notes and understand what they are, at a high level, these short reports are usually the least useful types of reports in sell side research.I hope this summary has helped you to understand research reports in more detail.;"";""
